As Amazon India fears an investigation into its business practices could harm its reputation, the Competition Commission of India attempts to push the Competition Law investigation forward.
The CCI had ordered a probe into foreign-owned e-commerce giants Amazon and Flipkart for allegedly violating Competition Law. Both businesses moved the Karnataka High Court in an attempt to quash the probe by filing petitions, Indo-Asian News Service reported.
Madhavi Divan, Additional Soliticor, CCI also criticised Amazon’s preference for certain sellers on its platform and promoting them at the expense of others. Amazon has faced numerous criticisms of its business practices in India, notably from the Confederation of All India Traders, which has gone to great lengths to make a stand against what it sees as unfair business practices, even organising nationwide strikes.
