Competition law practitioners were hoping that the proposed amendments to the Competition Act, 1998 would address some of the deficiencies in the current legislation. These include the narrowness of the grounds on which to seek an exemption from the Act - and would clarify some of the provisions (like the prohibition on horizontal restrictive practices, which may outlaw even efficiency-enhancing joint ventures), which have proven difficult to apply since its enactment in 1998,. The Bill does not address these aspects. Instead, it introduces new areas of uncertainty.
