Chennai Traders, who have been critical of the operations of FDI-funded multi-national e-commerce biggies, are not happy about the entry of Reliance Industries either. They want rules to be applicable alike for both multinationals and domestic players. However, the industry reckons that it would be tougher to get the new norms eased for multinational players, with Reliance announcing its foray into the e-commerce sector. The current regulations and norms in the e-commerce space are mostly meant for the FDI-funded entities. These may not be applicable for Reliance, as it does not need FDI to fund its e-commerce venture. “Whosoever launches an e-commerce portal, it should be based on fair fundamentals and not on malpractices, which includes predatory pricing, deep discounting, loss funding or exclusivity.

"There is a lot of fear among shopkeepers due to lack of clarity," he noted, pointing to how a pani puri seller in a Central Mumbai mall was fined for ...
