Competition Commission of India, CCI has imposed a penalty of Rs. 200 crore upon Maruti Suzuki India Limited, MSIL for restricting discounts by dealers.

The CCI passed the order against the company for indulging in anti-competitive conduct of Resale Price Maintenance in passenger vehicle segment by implementing discount control policy.
