The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has dismissed a complaint made against Jaguar Land Rover, for unfair business practices.
Coming to a conclusion that Jaguar Land Rover is not a dominant player in the relevant market, CCI ruled that there is no need to look into the company's conduct any further, under the Competition Act.
The complaint alleged that Jaguar Land Rover abused its dominant position with regard to sales of a Range Rover, made by the carmaker. The complaint was made by Lexus Motors, an authorised dealer, against Land Rover.
CCI, in a recent order stated: "There are no significant barriers for other players to enter the relevant market... the OPs (Opposite Parties) do not hold a position of strength in the relevant market which enables them to operate independently of competitive forces prevailing in the relevant market or affect their competitors or consumers or the relevant market in their favour."
Pointing at the absence of dominance by JLR in the relevant market (market for manufacture and sale of luxury cars in India), the Commission said, "there is no need to look into the conduct of OPs any further under the (Competition) Act."
Leaving the issues aside, Land Rover does make some truly remarkable vehicles, like the Range Rover Sport for example. Take a look at the image gallery below.
