The Confederation of All India Traders (@CAITIndia) has alleged that foreign-funded e-commerce majors are creating a ‘false narrative’ that the draft norms for the sector would impact foreign direct investment into India and the country’s image as an investment-friendly nation.
The government had proposed amendments to Consumer Protection (E-commerce) Rules indicating stricter compliance for E-commerce companies The CAIT has been questioning the alleged business malpractices in market places and The Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution has noted that there was “evident lack of regulatory oversight in e-commerce which required some urgent action”

CAIT argued that some of the major foreign-funded e-tailers are unhappy with the draft e-commerce rules as this will change the complete game plan of e-commerce and their control over the E-market.
“These are all useless arguments to derail the reformative measures of the government to purify the e-commerce business of India and to liberate the same from the vicious clutches of foreign-funded e-tailers and the traders across the country will resist strongly any such move initiated by vested interest parties,” Bhatia and Khandelwal added.
