Capacity Building

Training & Workshop

  • Subject Matter Trainings & Workshops
  • The Officers of CCI are from different background such as law, economics, finance, management, and other disciplines. CCI conducts various in-house interdisciplinary trainings/workshops focusing on particular streams, such as ‘Concepts of Basic Economics’, ‘Use of Basic Economics for Competition Law’, ‘Basic Legal/Financial Terminologies’ etc. in order to familiarize Officers with the subject. CCI also conducts in-depth training focusing on specific areas such as abuse of dominance, cartels, digital forensic, digital economy, big data, corporate governance, and other subjects that are relevant to competition law and policy. In addition to these trainings, CCI organizes other trainings related to establishment, administration, management, and IT. These trainings are conducted either in-house or in collaboration with professional training agencies/institutions such as ICAI, ICSI, IICA, etc. to enhance the professional competencies of Officers.

    Additionally, on the request of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), CCI conducts an Attachment Programme for newly recruited Indian Corporate Law Services (ICLS) officer trainees.

  • Annual Offsite Leadership Workshop (Pratispardha Manthan)
  • For all-round development of its employees, CCI organizes a team-building and leadership workshop each year for the Officers of CCI and O/o DG, CCI. The Annual Offsite Workshop, Pratispardha Manthan, focuses on building leadership skills, maintaining work-life balance, and team-building amongst the officers working across hierarchies at CCI.

    The workshop includes a lecture/session by a subject matter expert, team-building and leadership exercises, management games, and a historical tour of the selected offsite location for the particular year.

    The aim of Pratispardha Manthan is to give an opportunity to Officers (working in separate divisions and not able to interact much) for social interaction that instills confidence, loyalty amongst employees, and a sense of belongingness at the organizational level.

  • Induction Training & Orientation Programme
  • CCI regularly conducts an Induction Training & Orientation Programme for newly joined Officers, Experts, and Young Professionals of CCI in order to provide an overview of Competition Act & Policy, structure and working of the Commission, policies and procedures to be followed while working at CCI, etc. The aim of the programme is to develop the skills and competencies of newly recruited employees to enable them to perform at an optimal level while working in CCI.

    Until 2017, the induction training programme was conducted in-house. In 2018, for the first time, CCI organized a comprehensive twelve-day residential induction training programme in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA), Manesar, for newly recruited Officers as well as Officers on deputation. A similar five-day residential programme at IICA was held in 2020 for newly recruited Experts/Young Professionals and Officers on deputation at CCI. However, owing to COVID restrictions, all programmes since March 2020 have been conducted virtually.

  • Induction Training Manual
  • For reference, during the induction training programme, an induction manual is distributed to newly recruited Officers and Experts/Young Professionals. The Induction Training Manual is an important guide for newly recruited Officers and Experts/Young Professionals to understand the workings of CCI. The manual allows for the smooth induction of personnel in the system. This manual also provides basic knowledge regarding CCI as an organization and its workings and what an Officer will be doing in the institution. The manual also helps new Officers and Experts/Young Professionals settle in quickly in their new jobs. Links and references are included in the manual for a more complete understanding of the concepts and practices of competition enforcement.
  • Training Need Analysis
  • Training Need Analysis (TNA) is a systematic process of identifying and understanding the training requirements of employees to improve performance. It involves a complete analysis of training needs required at various levels of the organization. It is an in-depth review of learning and development for employees within an organization. With proper training and development, the productivity of employees increases manifold.

    TNA seeks to identify the gap between current and desired performance of employees and endeavours to reduce, if not eliminate, the gap by equipping the employees with knowledge and skills and by encouraging them to build and enhance their capabilities.

    The theoretical and empirical advancements in economics, emerging jurisprudence, various practices adopted by competition agencies worldwide, rapid technological changes, and innovation in goods and service sectors in a market economy lead to the development of new forms of organization and markets and pose challenges to the competition regulator. For the above-mentioned reasons, continuous training, capacity building activities have become indispensable for a market regulator like CCI.

    TNA allows CCI to take a proactive approach while designing and selecting various capacity building initiatives for employees. CCI has conducted various initiatives and programmes for enhancing the capacity of Officers. CCI needs to ensure the relevance of the capacity building initiative/programme before nominating officers for the same.

    Considering the importance of imparting relevant training, CCI periodically conducts surveys by administering questionnaires to divisions and professional Officers, seeking responses/feedback to ascertain the emerging training needs of divisions as well as individual officers. Based on analysis of the feedback received, CCI designs and conducts relevant training programme for the Division/Officers to meet their skill and training requirements to ultimately achieve the goals and objectives set by CCI.
