The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) has reserved its judgement over the petition filed by traders’ body CAIT against fair trade regulator CCI’s nod to Walmart’s USD 16-billion acquisition of Flipkart. A two-member bench of the appellate tribunal headed by Justice S J Mukhopadhaya concluded its hearing on Thursday after taking note of submissions made by both sides. “Hearing concluded. Judgment Reserved,” said the NCLAT.

However, the bench said: “It will be open to the parties to file short written submission, not more than three pages, by January 29, 2019.” In August 2018, CAIT had filed a petition in the NCLAT, which is also an appellate authority over the Competition Commission of India (CCI), asking for the reversal of the Walmart-Flipkart deal.
