State and social power and structure are based on theories and principles of conduct constitute the operation of public law. The National Competition Policy will be the Second Wave of changes that make the competition regime stronger and more efficient. Twenty years ago something was important changes seen in the Indian market. The benefits of the Factor flow control environment are many and are manifested in various areas such as telecom transport and manufacturing.


This achievement is a structural change of the Indian growth model. Still some of the remaining barriers and signs of anti-competitiveness and the reform process continue. The pace and direction of this development requires the National Competition Policy to find the potential for economic growth. Our governance and policy institutions are expanding the emergence of a changing ideology of the new India while continuing to follow the principles of the establishment of the Indian Constitution and based on the ‘Bharatiyata’ or wisdom of our history of civilization and morality “.

Competition law has a legacy of over 100 years and over 100 countries have their own rules but competition policy is something different. In many countries the policy has resulted in the greatest growth and the strengthening of social welfare. Preventing certain interventions helped remove obstacles to market competition.The overseas companies are increasingly favouring India for trade and investment they need better ownership of the business environment in the key sector through which this can be done.

Competition for Policies

Competition law and competition policy lead to a competitive culture. Many developing countries move from a government-controlled economy to markets. The economy of this ‘Competitive Culture’ has been greatly incorporated. Competition is a default process so it requires strategy and enforcement strategies. The Competition Act provides that but its policy is still pending.

Competition Policy

Competition policy is a set of approved methods and legislation that ensure that competition in the marketplace is not prevented in a way that is harmful to the public. It is those government actions that directly affect business operations and the structure of the industry. It includes measures to improve domestic and national competition and effective competition law that prohibits anti-competitive means. The broader concept of policy is its law which is an integral part of government’s regulatory actions under a systematic and annual review.

Competition law and policy

Competition is a fundamental characteristic of a dynamic and dynamic market economy.It helps to create economic growth and alleviate poverty. Competition law is a set of rules and regulations designed to promote a competitive environment and to enact legislation to protect against competition.

Competition law is subject to national competition policy. Competition law is actually about the study of ‘Markets’. Proper implementation of the policy leads to the promotion of social efficiency. Enforcement of the policy does not require legislative appropriation. There is a significant difference in the Competition Law and Policy. Competition policy entails a much broader set of metals than competition law.

Competition policy is therefore a structure and competition law is one component to legally enforce a competition issue arising from competition policy. It will be the second major step to make the change. The goal involves some anxiety. Competitive Role is an authority as an interventionist or non-interventionist based on a free market. The principle of competition will depend on the political and legal culture of the nation and the attitude towards the market and the role of the state. Competition law and policy therefore reflect existing political views. The distribution of the global economy and international cooperation in the pursuit of competition law are also important factors. The latest trend is for global stock exchanges. Generally the law of national competition reflects local politics and is based on the availability of national competition law. The global market needs to respond from national authorities to international competitiveness such as cross-border integration .Additional land use will require international cooperation.


The benefits of growth investment growth and total competitiveness are obvious. In the Competition regime the protection and control is replaced by an open and transparent competition system all of those barriers have been resolved.

The key issue for this change is to ensure and manage competition to get the most out of the National Competition Policy is the need of the hour. The absence of a National Competition policy in India has created uncertainty about the law governing competition. It also makes the Act obsolete. But when compared to the international approach to policy, the draft of the policy is found to be inaccurate and limited in nature. Global concerns about shared development and prosperity are nowhere to be found in the proposed Policy.

Considering the possibility that the Competition Act has gained a lot of power through its broader policy it is considered that a prescribed or related competition policy will enhance the effectiveness of the law in strengthening capacity and public acceptance and acceptance. Competition Law applies to various stakeholders in the business Legal Entities Government is a business community with consumers. Thus we can conclude that it is time to adopt a strong national Competition policy for development.
