Abstract: Healthy competition has the effect of bringing development. However, it turns ugly when it leads to downfall. Comparative advertising when used with mala fide intention and rancor in the market would only bring down the good product so as to mislead the consumers into buying the wrong products. In India, comparative advertising is rampant, ironically, with utter consternation; one has to accede to the fact that its laws are very bleak and superficial in India. This article throws light upon the legal structure of India with respect to comparative advertising. The article aspires for India’s acknowledgement to its callosity regarding the legal backbone of comparative advertising. The article further accentuates upon what reforms need to be imbibed in the field of comparative advertising and over strides any other mundane article by elaborating upon what lessons can be learnt from other developed nations in order to see ourselves as the ruling market in the world.
