New Delhi. In view of the big festival Rakshabandhan coming next month, the traders have demanded the government to implement the e-commerce rules at the earliest so that in the coming time, small businessmen of the country as well as consumers can get benefit. A letter has been sent by the Confederation of All India Traders to the Union Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, Piyush Goyal.
In this letter sent by CAT, it has been said that on the basis of past experiences, the implementation of e-commerce rules should not be delayed or any other mechanism should not be interrupted now. Implementation of rules is very important at this level. More than one lakh small shops have been closed across the country due to some big companies doing business in the country’s e-commerce business against the law and rules, due to which unemployment has also spread.
General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that in the wake of repeated violations of policy and law on the part of Amazon and Flipkart, the Karnataka High Court has made harsh remarks against both the companies. Apart from this, these big e-commerce companies cannot hijack the festive season starting from Rakhi soon, so it is also necessary that e-commerce rules should be implemented at the earliest so that all stakeholders can work for a fair and healthy competition. .
He said that in December, 2020, the Delhi High Court in an order held Amazon responsible for violating FDI rules and now the Division Bench of the Karnataka High Court in a judgment dated July 23 on Amazon and Flipkart’s business model Making a strong remark that if both of them are not involved in the violation of any statutory provision, then they should not feel ashamed to face the investigation rather they should welcome the CCI inquiry. The court also said that the writ appeal filed by both of them is an attempt to stall the investigation by the CCI.
The High Court also observed that both Amazon and Flipkart were deliberately not participating in the investigation and were trying to suppress the investigation. The High Court also noted that the market dynamics may change in a few months as well, so any previous case where Flipkart/Amazon has been acquitted by the CCI does not have any bearing. This is just an inquiry and the High Court reiterated at many places that the appellants are trying to quash an investigation and now Amazon and Flipkart have appealed before the Supreme Court against the order passed by the Division Bench of the Karnataka High Court. In such a situation, it shows that there is definitely something wrong with their business module which is against the prevailing law or policy.
