    Hollywood Celebrities Mourn The Death Of James Lipton

    Hundreds of Hollywood stalwarts were given to James Lipton, an actor-turned-drama-school-dean to open up regarding their life and art and became an unexpected star.

    The Competition Commission on Monday ordered a detailed investigation against Make My Trip (MMT) and OYO for allegedly indulging in anti-competitive business practices.

    While ordering the probe, CCI also noted that a case against MMT and OYO for entering into a vertical arrangement having an appreciable adverse effect on competition (AAEC) in the market is also “prima facie” made out.

    “The Commission is of the view that prima facie a case of contravention against MMT for abuse of dominant position… is made out on account of all the three allegations analysed supra,” the Competition Commission of India (CCI) said.

    The order came on a complaint filed by Rubtub Solutions Pvt Ltd which operates under the brand name of Treebo Hotels in India and is in the business of providing franchising services to budget hotels.

    As per the complaint, Treebo and its partner hotels are being excluded from listing on MMT’s platform through abrupt termination pursuant to the commercial arrangement between MMT and OYO.

    Besides, MMT is alleged to have imposed “price parity restriction” on Treebo partner hotels through the chain agreement, which restricted it from providing its properties to and Paytm at a better price.

    Additionally, MMT allegedly imposed an “exclusivity condition” on Treebo through exclusivity agreement which restricted it from listing its properties on and Paytm for 72 hours and 30 days prior to check-in for hotels situated in category A and category B cities, respectively.

    The complainant said that OYO has abused its dominant position in the market of franchising services for budget hotels in India by entering into an anti-competitive vertical arrangement with MMT, which is a dominant online travel agency (OTA), thereby denying market access to it.

    Accordingly, the Commission on “prima facie” finding the contravention of relevant provisions of Competition Act, directed DG, its investigation arm to conduct a detailed probe.
