This paper seeks to understand the SEP related incidents in the ICT cases leading up to the stage of prima facie investigation by the Competition Authority of India (CCI).

This paper observes the process of investigation adopted by CCI upon a complaint filed by an implementer and looks at the further possibility for the CCI to consider certain relevant information, while initiating investigation against the SEP holder.
