RGNUL Student Research Volume
RGNUL Student Research Volume

The exponential growth of e-commerce as a mode of conducting business raises a number of regulatory issues and legal questions. Over the past few years, the digital economy has seen a significant increase in the number of e-commerce transactions. With the unprecedented growth of the online retail sector, the need to have an adequate policy to govern it has arisen. The need for such a policy led to contemplations on the Draft E-Commerce Policy of 2018 (“Policy”).

The Policy aims to fill the legal vacuum pertaining to the E-commerce sector and bring certainty regarding the legal requirements and factors that the E-Commerce sector has to keep in mind. It aims at creating a level playing field to ensure fair competition for online marketplaces with respect to brick-and-mortar retailers. To regulate the online marketplace the Policy addresses multiple issues/topics vis-à-vis e-commerce including consumer protection, data localization, competition-distorting M&A etc.

In 2019, certain new FDI Rules issued by Department of Industrial Policy and Planning (DIPP) have been introduced which have barred online marketplaces, with foreign investments, from selling products from sellers in which the online marketplaces hold a stake. The Rules inter-alia prevents the exclusive sale of a product on a particular online marketplace. These rules have stirred the market and concretized the dire need to have a stable regulatory framework to regulate e-commerce in India. The instant series aims to facilitate discussion on the comprehensive legislation and regulation for the e-commerce sector in India.
