The Competition Commission of India is investigating whether there is cartelisation in fixing passenger fares by airlines, the Government said on Tuesday.


“In a suo moto case regarding cartelisation in passenger fares by airlines, CCI has directed an investigation by the Director General, CCI. This case, though, does not pertain to festive season hike,” Corporate Affairs Minister Arun Jaitley told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply


DG is the investigating arm of the Commission.


Earlier also, the watchdog had instituted a case on allegations that airlines had raised fares together around Diwali season of 2010. However, the case was closed in January, 2012 due to lack of evidence of anti-competitive practices.
