Government Invites Applications For 17 Posts On Deputation Basis

The Centre has invited applications for 17 posts, including for additional director general and deputy director general, at the Competition Commission of India (CCI) on a deputation basis, the PTI reported. 

According to the report, the CCI, which comes under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), keeps a tab on anti-competitive practices in the marketplace and also works towards promoting fair trade practices.

Applications have been sought for the posts of Additional Director General, Joint Director General and Deputy Director General, among others, according to a notice. Applicants must be employees of central or state governments, government companies or autonomous bodies or regulatory authorities or universities or judicial institutions of central/ state governments.

The appointment will be made on deputation on a foreign service terms basis initially for a period of three years, which can be extended for a period not exceeding seven years.

“Applications in the prescribed proforma, together with all necessary documents may be forwarded through proper channel, latest by April 24 2023,” the notice dated March 10, said. 

News agency Bloomberg on Thursday said that the CCI, witnessing a void at its top rung which is undermining its capacity to regulate major companies in the world’s fifth-largest economy.

The CCI, which has imposed million dollar penalties on Alphabet Inc.’s Google to Amazon.com Inc., is functioning with just two members, half the sanctioned strength and one short of quorum. It’s also still missing a chairperson, four months after the previous chairperson retired and seven months since the search for his replacement began.

According to the report, for months, the vacancies stalled approval of mergers and acquisitions until reported reliance on a necessity-led legal concept allowed the process to restart in early February. Enforcement matters that require adjudication remain in limbo.

The competition watchdog has completed more than a thousand combination cases, indicating a growing workload. Among the youngest antitrust regulators in the world, CCI has acted against cement to beer cartels, penalised bid-rigging and gun jumping, and recently fined Google twice.
