Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal may meet top e-commerce executives
The government is likely to come out with the draft of the much-awaited e-commerce policy soon.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal held the final round of consultations with industry players like Amazon, Flipkart, and Tata Digital among others.
Key issues like predatory tactics adopted by big industry players, deep discounting, and distinction between inventory-led e-commerce platforms and marketplaces, were discussed in the meeting, sources said.
Encouraging digitization of small and medium enterprises and whether to keep fallback liability on e-commerce platforms, were some other issues that came up for discussion during the consultations, they added.
There was unanimity in the meeting that the e-commerce policy should be brought as soon as possible along with changes in the Consumer Protection Act, in light of the growing e-commerce industry and changing market dynamics, sources said.
Consumer Affairs Secretary Rohit Kumar Singh and Secretary, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) Rajesh Kumar Singh were also present at the meeting.
