MCA-led digital competition law committee to include startups and news publishers

Share via:

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has decided to broaden the scope of its discussions by adding industry stakeholders to a 16-member panel formed to draft the new digital competition law.

This decision was made by the MCA-led digital competition law committee at its first meeting on February 22. A senior official told Business Standard that the committee is now expected to include domestic startups and news publishers. Manoj Govil, the MCA secretary, presided over the meeting and will be nominating new members to the panel. The development comes just a few weeks after several domestic startups and news publishers expressed concern about the digital competition law’s omission. They also claimed that the MCA-led panel is dominated by corporate lawyers, the majority of whom represent tech behemoths.
