NCLAT Reserves Order On Plea Against CCI Nod To Walmart-Flipkart Deal

The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) has reserved its judgment over the petition filed by traders’ body CAIT against fair trade regulator CCI’s nod to Walmart’s USD 16-billion acquisition of Flipkart.

A two-member bench of the appellate tribunal headed by Justice S J Mukhopadhaya concluded its hearing on Thursday after taking note of submissions made by both sides.

“Hearing concluded. Judgment Reserved,” said the NCLAT.

However, the bench said: “It will be open to the parties to file a short written submission, not more than three pages, by January 29, 2019.”
In August 2018, CAIT had filed a petition in the NCLAT, which is also an appellate authority over the Competition Commission of India (CCI), asking for the reversal of the Walmart-Flipkart deal.

On August 18, Walmart had informed that it has completed the deal with Flipkart and holds 77 percent stake in the Indian e-commerce major.

Earlier on September 6, the NCLAT, which is also an appellate authority over the Competition Commission of India (CCI), had asked Wal-Mart International Holdings Inc to file a reply before it explaining the way of doing business in India.―Money Control
