The Competition Commission of India is not looking at the issue of net neutrality at present, its Chairman Ashok Chawla said on Friday.

"We are keeping a watch on the Government working on the policy. First the sector regulator needs to be clear on the exact definition of net neutrality. Then we can look at the behaviour in the market," Chawla said.

He was addressing the media at the Indian Women's Press Corps here.

CCI is again probing the aviation players and looking at whether cartelisation exists among the top four-five players. "We had looked at it in the past, but found no evidence," Chawla said, adding that theoretically it could be a potential area for cartelisation.

On the Google case, where the probe arm of CCI has found evidence of search results being rigged, Chawla said, "The DG report is only the beginning and the CCI sends the report to both parties." He, however, did not mention whether CCI will give a two-month extension, which Google has asked for with respect to submitting certain documents.
