Several MSME sellers not aware of any govt policy regulating e-commerce in India: Survey
Ease of Doing Business for MSMEs: Even as India’s e-commerce market continues to grow in size and scope for MSMEs selling on marketplaces, a number of sellers, however, know little about existing laws governing e-commerce in the country. According to a survey of small sellers — selling goods on online platforms such as Flipkart, Amazon, and others — released by Research firm CUTS Institute for Regulation and Competition (CIRC) on Friday, 71 per cent were not aware of any government policy regulating the e-commerce sector. “This indicates a need to sensitize small sellers about e-commerce onboarding as well as the e-commerce policies in India and their rights,” the survey said.
