Compat rejects ex-AI director plea to kill Jet-Etihad merger with LEXport, DSK, Salve & others

The Competition Appellate Tribunal (Compat) has rejected an appeal by Jitendra Bhargava, a former executive director Air India, who complained that the Competition Commission had cleared the merger between the two airlines without a detailed assessment. Compat rejected his petition for lacking locus standi, reported PTI.

Senior advocate Ramji Srinivasan with Delhi-firm LEXport founder and managing partner Shri Srinivas Kotni, and Mukul Chandra, Shri Ajay Yadav and Shri Pradeep Chandel appeared for Bhargava.

The CCI was represented by DSK Legal Delhi partner Balbir Singh and Monica Benjamin, Kunal Sabharwal and Vijay Kumar Singh.

Senior advocates Harish Salve and Kavin Gulati appeared for Jet Airways with UA Rana and Mrinal Majumdar

Advocates Rajshekhar Rao, Abir Roy, Shruti Aji and Zehra Khan acted for Etihad. 

Salve, alongside Economic Laws Practice (ELP) and Gagrats advised Jet on the original merger transaction a year ago, with Amarchand and DLA Piper acting for Etihad.
