The complainant had alleged that the company charged exorbitant price for international mobile data

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has dismissed allegations that telecom operator Vodafone India abused its dominant position by imposing discriminatory charges for international roaming services.

After finding that the company is not in a dominant position and there is enough competition in the ‘market for provision of international mobile data services in Mumbai’, the watchdog has rejected the complaint.

The complainant had alleged that the company charged exorbitant price for international mobile data services on roaming basis during his travel to Canada. In a recent order, CCI said the relevant market in the instant case appears to be competitive and customers therein have choices. The players are comparable with each other in terms of size, resources and expertise, it added.

The CCI said no case of contravention of Section 4, pertaining to abuse of dominant position, of the Competition Act is made out against Vodafone India.
