Thanks for sharing this John Sir:)

Here's another interesting judgement (it has been challenged by the automobile manufacturers) -

CCI imposes Rs 2,545 crore penalty on 14 car makers


Costly Spare Parts: Why Competition Commission Penalised 14 Carmakers - NDTVProfit.com

Some of the key findings -
............................................
3) These spare parts are sold at very high prices to customers. In fact, the mark-up in pricing of the top 50 spare parts ranges from 100 per cent to 5000 per cent. In simple terms, customers end up paying between double to 50 times the cost of the most commonly used spare parts.
4) Car manufacturers make sizeable profits from selling spare parts. According to a CII-McKinsey report, the aftermarket business is highly profitable for car manufacturers. Spare parts sale contributes a mere 24 per cent to revenues of manufacturers, but 55 per cent to overall profits.
..............................................................

It is like day light robbery by auto manufacturers under the name of authorized service stations.
