Legal Matters

Hon’ble Supreme Court, New Delhi

On 18.01.2011, Mr. Shamsher Kataria filed information u/s 19(1)(a) of the Competition Act, 2002 against Honda cars India, Volkswagen India and Fiat India for indulging in anti-competitive practices in sale, maintenance, service and repair market of the cars manufactured in India. On 27.01.2011, Mr. Kataria filed a supplementary information against Toyota, Skoda, General Motors, Ford, Nissan Motors, Mercedes Benz, BMW and Audi. On 24.02.2011, Competition Commission (‘CCI’) ordered investigation. On 19.04.2011, Director General requested for permission to expand the scope of investigation to other car manufacturers operating in India, including Tata Motors Ltd. ("TML"); and the same was allowed by CCI. After following a detailed process, CCI vide its order dated 25.08.2014 held the car manufacturers of having indulged in anti-competitive practices. CCI, among other directives, imposed a penalty on TML to the tune of 2% of its total turnover in India, amounting to Rs. 1346.46 crore to be deposited within a period of 60 days of the receipt of order. TML, along with a majority of car manufacturers, challenged the order of CCI in Delhi High Court. On 10.04.2019, the High Court allowedthe Writ petitions partly by striking down Section 22(3) of the Competition Act, 2002. Further, the High Court directed the car manufacturers to challenge the CCI's order in an appeal before NCLAT. Aggrieved by the order of High Court, TML filed a Special Leave Petition before Supreme Court. The other car manufacturers also joined the proceedings, and Supreme Court on 01.07.2019, extended the ad interim relief that was granted by High Court during the pendency of the matter before it.

Competition Commission of India ("CCI")

Varanasi Auto (‘VASPL’) was appointed as a full range dealer for commercial vehicles in the territory of of Varanasi, Ghazipur, Ballia, Chandauli, Sant Ravidas Nagar, Jaunpur, Bhadohi, etc. VASPL filed application u/s 10 of Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code, 2016 before the NCLT (Allahabad) for initiating the corporate insolvency resolution process. On 24.08.2017, TML issued termination notice to VASPL owing to the non-performance and working capital gaps. TML filed its detailed response with the NCLT. Subsequently, NCLT dismissed the application of VASPL. VASPL challenged the NCLT’s order before NCLAT (New Delhi). NCLAT also dismissed the appeal vide its order dated 20.12.2019. Subsequently, Mrs. Neha Gupta filed a complaint with CCI. A preliminary conference was held on 19.12.2019, during which both the parties argued the matter. CCI directed both the parties to file their written submissions. Another ex-dealer Mr Nishant Bhutada (Kanchan Motors) from Nashik filed almost similar information with CCI, thereby making the same allegations.

On 04.05.2021, CCI passed the order directing its Director General("DG") to conduct an investigation into TML’s business practices based on certain preliminary findings.

The DG concluded his investigationand submitted the report to CCI. TML filed its objections to the report in compliance with CCI's order dated 07.09.2022 and the final arguments in the matter took place on 2nd August 2023.

Arbitration between Tata Motors Limited vs. West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation

In October 2008, the Company moved the Nano project from Singur in West Bengal to Sanand in Gujarat. In June 2011, the newly elected Government of West Bengal (the “West Bengal Government”) enacted a law known as the Singur Land Rehabilitation & Development Act, 2011

934.13

-

 

 


 

 

 

(“Singur Act”) and, by virtue of the provisions of abovementioned law, the West Bengal Government took possession of land. In response, the Company challenged the constitutionality of the Singur Act before the High Court at Calcutta. In June 2012, the Division Bench of the Calcutta High Court declared the Singur Act unconstitutional and restored the Company’s rights under the land lease agreement, but the Company did not receive back possession of the land. Thereafter, the West Bengal Government subsequently filed an appeal before the Supreme Court of India in August 2012.

 

In August 2016, the Supreme Court of India declared the acquisition of the land for the small car project by the West Bengal Government as illegal and directed that the land be returned to the landowners.

 

The Supreme Court of India’s decision also rendered the West Bengal Government’s lease of the land to TML unviable. However, the lease agreement contained a clause stating that, if the acquisition was deemed illegal, the West Bengal Government would indemnify TML for the capital cost it had incurred on the site. The lease agreement also provided for arbitration as a mechanism to resolve any dispute between TML and West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (“WBIDC”), the Lessor. When TML raised its claim for compensation for indemnification for capital and other costs, WBIDC declined to grant the same. TML sought arbitration in terms of the lease agreement, in order to resolve the dispute and filed its statement of claim and WBIDC filed a counter claim. Evidence and arguments by the Parties have concluded before the Hon’ble Tribunal.

The matter is now pending for passing of the Award by the Hon’ble Arbitral Tribunal.
