For more than five years, Amazon, Walmart-owned Flipkart and many other foreign-funded e-commerce companies have indulged into all kinds of unethical business practices with an objective of taking control of not only the e-commerce but even the retail business of India, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) said.
Their sinister designs have greatly vitiated the e-commerce landscape of the country, the traders body said.
In view of such a situation, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has launched an “e-commerce purification week” from Monday to June 21, which is gaining massive support from thousands of trade associations across the Country.
During the e-commerce purification campaign, the trade organizations across the country will handover a memorandum to the District Collectors in all states in the Country. On the other hand, the trade delegations will meet the Chief Ministers and Finance Ministers of their respective States urging them to set up a monitoring mechanism for e-commerce trade in the State for ensuring strict implementation of FDI in e-commerce policy of the Government.
Simultaneously, the trade associations will send an e-mail to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal urging them for an immediate direction to the CCI for initiating an investigation of the business module of Amazon and Flipkart, issuance of a fresh Press Note removing the flaws of Press Note 2, and setting up of a Regulatory mechanism at the Centre to monitor e-commerce business in India. The CAIT has also declared to launch a digital signature campaign across the Country on this issue.
