Indian Competition Authority Rules that Uber Does not Facilitate Hub and Spoke Arrangements

Devika Agarwal describes Indian Competition Authority Rules that Uber Does not Facilitate Hub and Spoke Arrangements.

ABSTRACT: On 6 November 2018, the Competition Commission of India (the ‘CCI’) delivered its order in Samir Agrawal v. ANI Technologies and ors.1 (‘Samir Agrawal v. Ola & Uber’). The CCI ruled on whether the use of algorithmic pricing for determining ride fares amounted to a cartel (namely, a hub and spoke arrangement) between a taxi aggregator and the drivers using the platform. The article gives a background of online ride sharing services which are popular in India and abroad, the facts of the instant case, the key findings of CCI and the importance of the order in the context of European competition law.
