India is a huge market for online retail companies, people were under lockdown for several months due to COVID-19 and thus the economy experienced a huge decay, but as the restrictions were gradually lifted by the government through several phases of unlocking, life came to normalcy.
As the people were under lockdown for several months, the online retail giants like Amazon and Flipkart launched big festive season sales which attracted customers because of great discounts provided by the companies, and that brought great earning for the retail giants.
However, Praveen Khandelwal, National Secretary-General of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) alleged that the companies have violated the trading rules of e-commerce platforms and government should take strict actions against them. Praveen’s organization has more than seven crore, active members and they have said that they will protest on the streets if the government fails to take any action.
Praveen alleged that Amazon and Flipkart are destroying Indian retailers and small shop owners by providing deep discounts to customers which need to be stopped. Praveen said that Indian retailers are patriots and they are boycotting Chinese products despite cheap prices and high profitable deals, while Amazon and Flipkart are selling Chinese products for their sake, thus they need support.
