The division Bench of Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh did not assemble today and the matter was adjourned for May 31.
Earlier the Division had issued notice to CCI in the matter.
Senior Advocate Harish Salve and Former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi appeared for the petitioners and had told the court that CCI proceedings must be kept in abeyance as the matter is pending before Supreme Court and High Court.
Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Aman Lekhi, who represented CCI in the matter, had earlier told the court that the matter is not of privacy but access to data and the Competition is going to deal with metadata.
ASG Lekhi responded that data can have a privacy or competition dimension. He also said the issue is completely competition-based as understanding consumer behaviour and preferences facilitate targeted advertising. (ANI)
