Competition Commission of India (CCI) is a statutory body in India established in 2003. It consists of six members headed by a chairman. The CCI chairpersons are selected by the Department of Personnel and Training under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions.

The 32-page order said, “The Commission is of the view that there is a prima facie case with respect to certain conduct of Zomato and Swiggy, which requires investigation by the Director General.”

The NRAI has alleged that apart from hiding consumer data, Swiggy and Zomato prevent individual restaurants from placing orders on their own due to the mandatory bundle of ordering and delivery services.
