Facts of the Case

The NCLAT upheld the CCI order and directed Amazon to deposit Rs 200 crore penalty within 45 days. Further, the CCI suspended the 2019 deal, citing Amazon’s failure to disclose its strategic interest in Future Retail Limited.

Later, Amazon moved before the Supreme Court assailing the NCLAT’s order. The NCLAT rejected Amazon’s plea challenging the CCI’s decision to keep the approval granted to the e-commerce giant’s deal with Future Coupons in abeyance.

Supreme Court Held

The Supreme Court issued a stay order on the 200 crore penalty imposed by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) on Amazon in relation to the Amazon-Future Group deal case.

Further, in view of the matter being pending in the Supreme Court, no coercive steps shall be taken in relation to notice of recovery of Rs. 200 crores penalty against Amazon until the next date of hearing.
