 |  November 12, 2018

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has ordered an investigation against global chip maker Intel for allegedly abusing its dominant position in the Indian market by restricting the production of servers. The direction comes following a complaint by Bangalore-based Velankani Electronics, engaged in the business of design and manufacture of electronic products in India.

Intel is a leading technology company engaged in the designing, manufacturing, and distribution of a wide range of IT components as well as electronic devices relating to communications and computing such as processors, chipsets, motherboard/server-board, among others.
