This article is written by Kalyani Gupta, a Master’s in Law student from Amity University, Noida. This commentary discusses in brief about the case Excel Corp Care Ltd. v. CCI.


(2017) 8 SCC 47

Equivalent Citation

AIR 2017 SC 2734


Excel Crop Care ltd.


Competition Commission of India

Date of Judgement



A.K. Sikri, N.V. Ramana


The Supreme Court, in this case of Excel Crop Care Limited vs. Competition Commission of India and Another” dated May 8, 2017 held that the punishment to be enforced on enterprises engaged in anti-competitive methods should be assessed on the base of ‘relevant turnover’ of the business and not the ‘total turnover’.

Facts of the Case

‘Food Corporation of India’ offered a letter to the Competition Commission of India dated February 4, 2011 claiming implementation of anti-competitive agreements amongst four companies – 

  • M/s. Excel Crop Care Limited
  • M/s. United Phosphorus Limited
  • M/s. Sandhya Organics Chemicals (P) Ltd
  • M/s Agrosynth Chemicals Limited

These enterprises were engaged in the production of Aluminium Phosphide Tablets and were claimed to have established an alliance by joining into an anti-competitive agreement between themselves. On acceptance of such a complaint by Competition Commission of India, an investigation was performed by the Director General of Competition Commission of India who initiated that since 2002 to 2009, these companies had been presenting their tenders by citing matching rates in the proposals asked by the Food Corporation of India for the acquisition of APT. The statement of the Director General of Competition Commission of India discovered these enterprises to be in breach of section 3(3) of the Competition Act, 2002 which forbids anti-competitive agreement. On the base of the report of the Director General of Competition Commission of India, and complaints recorded by the four companies, the Competition Commission of India established vide order dated April 23, 2012 that M/s. Excel Crop Care Limited, M/s. United Phosphorus Limited, M/s. Sandhya Organics Chemicals (P) Ltd had breached section 3 of the Act and consequently, enforced punishment on them at the rate of 9% on the average aggregate turnover of these institutions for the past three years, under section 27 (b) of the Act. 

The appellants recorded appeals alongside the order of Competition Commission of India at COMPAT (Competition Appellate Tribunal). COMPAT found the appellants to be offensive of section 3 of the Act. Though, the COMPAT held that whilst evaluating burden of penalty under section 27(b) on multi product enterprises, only ‘relevant turnover’ should be deemed and not ‘total turnover’. Appropriate turnover implies to the turnover in relation to the product in question in regard to which terms of the Act were breached although total turnover implies to the whole turnover of the wrong person or enterprise including all the products. Subsequently, the appellants approached the Supreme Court of India demanding it to proclaim the outcomes of COMPAT as untenable and to set separately the punishment levied on them. The CCI also recorded an appeal to the Supreme Court to set away that element of the requisition of COMPAT in which it held that punishment upon providers should be confined to appropriate turnover and not the overall turnover.


Section 27(b) of the Act authorizes the Competition Commission of India to enforce punishment on individuals or companies in violation of Section 3 or 4 of the Act to the possibility as it deliberates suitable but not greater than 10% of the average of the turnover for the preceding three monetary years. The matter in front of the court was whether ‘turnover’ as occurring under Section 27 of the Act intended to describe ‘relevant turnover’ or ‘total turnover’. Another issue that came up before the Court was whether the Competition Commission of India had jurisdiction to conduct investigation regarding a tender offer that was proposed by the parties before the commencement of Section 3 of the Act. Section 3 of the Act came into operation on May 20, 2009. 


  1. Issue of determination of turnover:
  • “The concept of ‘turnover’ for multiproduct enterprises”: When a multiproduct company has penetrated into an anti-competitive agreement and such an agreement may be in regard to a single product. Hence, inflicting punishment on the total turnover of such business would bring out unjust results. Such unfair or absurd outcomes are to be avoided. When an agreement which is in contravention of Section 3 requires one product, there appears to be no explanation for involving other products of a business for the objective of enforcing penalty. Therefore, the turnover ought to be of the violating or infringing product.
  • “The doctrine of proportionality”: The Supreme Court of India applied the ‘doctrine of proportionality’ to foray a stability between the object of the Act to stop anti-competitive practices and the right of the person infringing in not suffering the penalty which may be unequal to the significance of the Act. The Act seeks to punish offenders of the Act. Though, the Court held that the punishment should not be unbalanced, and lawbreakers should be appropriately punished. 
  • “The doctrine of purposive interpretation”: The Supreme Court of India used the doctrine of ‘purposive interpretation’ to state that there was a legislative connection amongst the damage instigated and the revenues which accumulated from the cartel activity. The Court also stated that there had to be a link between the type of offence and the benefit obtained from such crime. Hence, keeping in mind this kind of co-relation, the concerned turnover, i.e., ‘relevant turnover’ turns into a yardstick for levying a punishment.     
  • “Calculation of Penalty”: The Supreme Court depended on several principles to ascertain the requirement of using ‘relevant turnover’ to evaluate the punishment of criminal organizations. In continuation of this, the Court also placed down a two-step test to determine the punishment under section 27 of the Act.

Step 1: 

“Determination of relevant turnover”: Appropriate turnover has been taken to be the entity’s turnover relating to products and services that have been influenced by such violation. The Court held that while evaluating the punishment to be levied on an offender, the evaluating authority should have regard to the entity’s audited financial reports, and in the absence of such statements, appropriate records reflecting the company’s pertinent turnover or estimation of relevant turnover may be taken into consideration.


“Determination of appropriate percentage of penalty based on aggravating and mitigating circumstances”: Aspects that are to be taken into consideration while imposing suitable fraction of penalty comprises of 

  • Nature
  • Gravity
  • Scope of the violation
  • Role performed by the infringer
  • The extent and intensity of involvement
  • Loss or harm suffered because of such violation
  • Market conditions in which the violation took place
  • Nature of the product 

Though, such punishment would not be more than the total cap of 10% of the entity’s relevant turnover. In view of the above principles, the Supreme Court upheld the penalty enforced on the petitioners as determined by COMPAT on the basis of appropriate turnover of the companies.

  1. Issue of CCI to conduct inquiry for tender prior to commencement of the Section 3: The Supreme Court held that the investigation led by Competition Commission of India into the tender of March 2009 was enclosed by Section 3 of the Act as the tender procedure, though started on the preceding date when Section 3 became operational, continual beyond May 20, 2009, the date on which the requirements of Section 3 of the Act were imposed.

Takeaway: The judgment from the apex court of the country stated that to decide punishment based on appropriate turnover of companies has set a historic precedent for the Competition Commission of India and COMPAT to determine punishment of lawbreaker’s hereafter. Not only the vagueness of the term ‘turnover’ has been made to imply relevant turnover, but the Supreme Court has also given an instructive list of aspects to be considered while deciding the proportion of penalty. Enterprises have been saved from being enforced excessively high amounts of fine which would have been unequal to their offence. Though, it is to be noted that businesses which have grown high amounts of revenues by arriving at cartels may still stand the chance of being forced higher penalties because proviso of section 27(b) of the Act empowers Competition Commission of India to levy a penalty of up to ‘three times the profit of the company’ if it is higher than 10% of the turnover of the company.

Hon’ble Justice J.B. Koshy and Hon’ble Justice K. Hema, JJ.

Decided On

20th September 2007

Relevant Act/ Section

  • Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 – Section 173(8)
  • Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 – Section 319
  • High Court Act 1958 (Kerala Act 5 of 1959) – Section 3

Brief Facts and Procedural History

September 27, 2005: The deceased Udayakumar was arrested together with Suresh Kumar under charges of theft in a nearby park at 1.30 pm. Defendants Jitakumar and Srikumar are all police officers attached to the fort. , Thiruvananthapuram in Crime Squad. From around 2 pm Since then, Suresh Kumar and Udayakumar have been brutally tortured, and which they know that it would lead to the death of Udayakumar by three constables from the fort police station. At 10:20 pm, Udaykumar was transferred from the police station to the Thiruvananthapuram Medical College Hospital. At 11:30 pm, a doctor at the Hospital of the University of Thiruvananthapuram School of Medicine announced Udayakumar’s death. The investigation was carried out by the local police and these accused police officers and was charged with crimes under Section 302 read with 34 of the Indian Penal Code. The trial began, and several prosecutor’s witnesses were questioned and many of them turned hostile to the accused officers. A motion for further investigation of the case was filed. During the investigation, the trial court by invoking its power under Section 319 had arrayed a police constable as the 4th accused. The 4th accused challenged this in a Criminal Revision. The mother of Udayakumar who died as a result of police torture filed a writ petition, demanding the further investigation of CBI, and disciplinary action and perjury against the police who turned hostile during the trial.

Issues before the Court

  1. Whether a Trial Court or Magistrate’s Court can entrust the further investigation to CBI, in a case where the investigation is being conducted by the State Police?
  2. Whether further investigation of a case can be conducted even though the trial has started?
  3. Whether the Court can array further accused as parties or frame additional charge after investigation if necessary?

Ratio of the Case

The ratio decidendi of the above case is that the power of the police to conduct other investigations under Sections 173(8) should never interfere with the power of the High Court and the Supreme Court to direct special investigation agencies to conduct investigations when circumstances warrant. Inherent powers of the courts to meet the ends of Justice are protected by Section 482 of the Criminal Procedure Law. According to Article 226 of the Constitution of India, the court’s power also enables the court to order the specific circumstances of individual cases to be further investigated by special investigative agencies to avoid injustice.

If an erroneous investigation is found in the proceedings, further investigation can correct the error if circumstances permit. It is better for the police to notify the court and request formal authorization for further investigation when new facts come into light instead of remaining silent, consider only the necessity of an early trial, because the effective prosecution of actual crimes through appropriate investigations is very relevant, desirable, and a necessary step to speed up processing resolution of the case by the courts.

The newly found accused should be given ample opportunity to file a lawsuit, and if necessary, witnesses who have already been interviewed can be examined by exercising the powers of Section 217 of the Criminal Procedure Law. Under Section 319 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the court has the right to add any accused after the proceedings begin.

Decision of the Court

In this application, the court does not consider whether he can be convicted of perjury or whether he can deliberately hunt down the applicant or other policemen who have been declared hostile. For a perjury decision, the court left the matter to the concerned department and authority to consider disciplinary action and proceed before the competent court. After reviewing the evidence contained in the record, Judged has concluded that the court has been acquitted based on the evidence submitted to the petitioner for review when he was designated as the accused. The court believes that the ruling approved under Article 319 has no weaknesses. 

The Writ petition was disposed of on the grounds that the High Court and Apex Court can allow further investigation of a case to a specialized agency like the CBI if the circumstances so warrant. The court has concluded that the case is appropriate because the police were charged with involvement in the case, further investigation should be conducted. Based on the available information, the court believes that in this case, police officers are more interested to defend the accused in accordance with the law, and refrain from performing judicial trials or conducting appropriate investigations. Although there is no need to suspend pending procedures in any case where an investigation of the CBI is ordered, in essence, it is necessary to initiate additional procedures in the court of the first instance only after the CBI has submitted a supplementary report. This is a suitable case to resolve the issue and the court directed the CBI to conduct further investigation.

About the theme: Lawtryst ’21: Error 2021 Data Privacy Not Found:

 It is rightly said that technology is mankind’s greatest invention which shall cause even —greater perils. The digital sector revolutionised how everyone functioned. And as the world became more digitalised, it brought with itself a newer set of challenges! According to Risk Based Security research newly published in the 2019 Midyear Quick View Data Breach Report, the first six months of 2019 have seen more than 3,800 publicly disclosed breaches exposing an incredible 4.1 billion compromised records. But life without digital media was unimaginable and when the pandemic hit, it seemed as if the world was suddenly compelled to fit itself in a small screen.

Everything- from schools, hospitals, judiciary to the governments were now functioning from behind the screens! In the wake of the pandemic, we saw a “Digital Explosion” which was accompanied by “Digital Exploitation”. According to a report by Verizon, confirmed data breaches in the healthcare industry alone increased by 58% this year. Another report by IBM suggests that remote work has increased the average cost of a data breach by $137,000. All these and more raise a very pertinent question- How do we ensure a virtual survival of our identities in this digitally altered new world?

Hence this year, through our festival Law Tryst, we aim to bring out pertinent aspects of Data Privacy and engage young, aspirational minds from across the country in an exciting dialogue about what this new virtual reality means for human race and what would be the consequences of today’s inventions on the survival of the future!

Our team works to make sure that every student who participates in Law Tryst is offered an experience that is not only entertaining but also instigates the students to think beyond the theories.

About CIFF

The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) is an independent philanthropic organisation with offices in Addis Ababa, Beijing, London, Nairobi, and New Delhi. CIFF works with a wide range of partners seeking to transform and empower the lives of children and adolescents in developing countries, with the ultimate goal of solving seemingly intractable challenges to ensure all children and adolescents have the chance to survive and thrive.

CIFF aims to play a catalytic role as a funder and influencer to deliver urgent and systemic change at scale. Areas of work include empowering girls and boys to control their sexual and reproductive health to avoid unintended pregnancy, unsafe abortion and HIV/AIDS; improving children and mothers’ health and nutrition; preventing low birthweight babies; eliminating deaths from severe acute malnutrition, nested within a more integrated approach to childhood development; and deworming efforts to break transmission for good. CIFF’s child protection work focuses on ending child labour and sexual exploitation by enabling an environment that reduces vulnerability of communities and increases protection of children. The organisation’s climate portfolio is driven by a vision of a climate-safe future for today’s children and future generations that also bear the benefits of cleaner air, energy security and sustainable jobs.

We are privileged, as a financially independent philanthropy, to be able to work in challenging areas that others can’t and we often elect to work on what can be controversial issues that others won’t. For example CIFF is pro-choice with respect to women’s reproductive rights along with the prioritisation of access to reproductive information and to contraceptive choices. It is imperative to the CIFF family, therefore, that prospective candidates are aware of the issues we work on and embrace all our programmatic work with fully open minds to the huge number of ways in which we seek to empower young lives.

CIFF places significant emphasis on quality data and evidence. For most of its grants, CIFF works with partners to measure and evaluate progress to achieve large scale and sustainable impact. The organisation is committed to sharing as much information as possible about what they and their partners are learning.

Founded in 2002, CIFF employs approximately 160 professionals globally. CIFF strives to couple business acumen and principles with development experience and best practices to transform the landscape for children. It seeks to be the gold standard in grant making and foundation operations.

With an increase in grant commitments and complexity of investments, an excellent opportunity exists for a lawyer to join the Foundation on a fixed term basis.

Reporting to the Deputy General Counsel, you will provide support on a wide range of matters, including the drafting and negotiation of agreements with grantee organisations and partners, conducting due diligence, advising on appropriate legal structures through which to provide funding and advising on governance and general compliance matters.

As part of a small legal team, you will have the opportunity to work in close business partnership with staff at all levels across the Foundation, developing effective working relationships and providing advice on a wide range of day-to-day matters.

This role will be primarily supporting the India office, and those who work with the India office in understanding the requirements of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (including recent amendments) and establishing the necessary processes, procedures and guidelines to ensure compliance. However, there will also be the opportunity to work more broadly across the organisation as part of the Legal team.

10. Willing to drive change, improve processes and generally make colleagues more aware of the importance of legal issues. Work with all aspects of a rapidly growing organisation.

Person Specification:

Excellent experience of transactions and corporate structures is required in this position and as a result, the role is well suited to corporate and general commercial lawyers. You must also be able to demonstrate involvement or a keen interest in the not-for-profit sector.

2. Experience of a broad range of practical legal issues, including corporate, commercial contracts, regulatory issues, corporate governance and specifically FCRA.
