No abuse of dominance by CGHS: CCI

The Competition Commission of India dismissed an abuse of dominance case against Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) office, Dehradun. It was alleged that CGHS, Dehradun favoured one of the bidders and rejected the bid of the Informant on vague grounds, in a tender invited for appointment of Authorised Local Chemist for supply of allopathic medicines to CGHS Wellness Centres in Dehradun. However, CCI was of the opinion that the alleged conduct of selecting one of the bidders and rejecting the bid of the Informant cannot be termed as abusive within the meaning of Section 4 of the Competition Act.
