Chairperson and 6 Members appointed by the Central Government. It is the duty of
the Commission to eliminate practices having adverse effect on competition, promote
and sustain competition, protect the interests of consumers and ensure freedom of
trade in the markets of India. The Commission is also required to give opinion on
competition issues on a reference received from a statutory authority established
under any law and to undertake competition advocacy, create public awareness and
impart training on competition issues.
