New Delhi: The RSS affiliated SJM has passed a resolution demanding a robust e-commerce policy to protect the interests of small shopkeepers, as big online retailers Flipkart and Amazon are circumventing laws detrimental to interests of the traders.

Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) firmly believes that India should have a robust e-Commerce policy to protect the interests of 13 crore people engaged in retail trade and crores of people in small and medium industries, the Sangh's economic wing said in the resolution passed in its national convention in Madurai.

"The e-commerce companies including Flipkart and Amazon continue to circumvent laws detrimental to the interests of the traders namely small shopkeepers, book sellers, medicine shops and others. India should have a robust e-commerce policy to protect the interests of 13 crore people engaged in retail trade and crores of people in small and medium industries," SJM's co-convener Ashwani Mahajan said.

It further said that new guidelines issued by the government for those e-commerce companies which have foreign direct investment (FDI) are prohibited from selling products from those companies in which they have stakes, but they continue to do so.

Cloudtail Ltd which is a subsidiary of Amazon accounts for 70-80 per cent of its sales. Similarly, WS Retail Ltd of Flipkart accounts for 30-40 per cent of its overall sales, the Sangh-affiliate said, adding that the e-commerce giants must be dealt with according to law.
