The American e-commerce giant Amazon.com has approached the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) challenging the order passed by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) suspending its 2019 deal with the Future Group..According to sources familiar with the development, the appeal is likely to be heard by the NCLAT in the coming week..Amazon's acquisition of 49 percent stake in Future Coupons Private Limited (FCPL) has been embroiled in many legal disputes.An arbitration tribunal in Singapore has been hearing Amazon's case against Future Group related to the 2019 deal between the two companies. While hearing this case, the tribunal had passed an interim order stalling the sale of Future Retail's assets to Reliance Industries.Last month, the CCI had suspended the clearance for the deal, stating that Amazon had failed to notify it about certain crucial details of its acquisition as required under Section 6(2) of the Competition Act, 2002 (Act). It had, therefore, also imposed a penalty of ₹202 crore on Amazon..Armed with the CCI order, Future Group then approached the Delhi High Court seeking a stay on the arbitration proceedings at the tribunal citing the CCI order. The pleas stated that since the CCI had suspended its approval, the agreement between the two companies does not stand and therefore the arbitration based on the said agreement is also illegal.While the pleas were dismissed by the single-judge, a Division Bench had stayed the proceedings before the Singapore tribunal. The bench had cited CCI order as one of the reasons for staying the proceeding while adding that an irreparable loss would be caused to the Future Group if proceedings are not stayed.The Division Bench had also issued notice to Amazon and has listed the case for further hearing on February 1.
