CCI by its order dated May 19, 2015 exonerated Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Company Limited (BD), Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI), Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industries-CREDAI (MCREDAI) for alleged anti-competitive practices under section 3 of the Act. It was alleged that BD, CREDAI and MCREDAI have been indulging in the practice of incorporating standard clauses in their respective apartment buyers’ agreement. CCI observed that section 3(3) of the Act would be attracted only if there is a practice carried on by an association of enterprises or association of persons, and that, such practice determines, directly or indirectly, purchase or sale prices of apartments. Nothing was presented to prove such an arrangement. Further, nothing was brought up indicating that these standard clauses in agreements determine the prices of apartments. Hence, CCI held that BD, CREDAI and MCREDAI were not in violation of section 3 of the Act.
