India’s New Merger Control Regime: An Economist’s Perspective

Rameet Sangha, Apr 15, 2011


India's new merger control regime will come into force on June 1, 2011. This article describes what consulting economists would like to see from the merger control regime, drawing on experience of merger control in other jurisdictions, in particular Europe and South Africa.

This article focuses on the processes and working practices we would like to see to ensure that economic evidence is deployed and evaluated effectively in India's new merger review process.
