Chairman of CAT gave information
In a joint statement issued today, CAT National President BC Bhartia and National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that keeping in mind the new revelations, CAT will contact Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and demand immediate action on Amazon. Many proofs have already been given to the government by CAT.
With this, action should be initiated against Amazon after the revelation of the truth by the International News Agency. A company that is deeply involved in violations of law and policies and continues its well planned strategies to control the e-commerce business in India should be taught a lesson.
Both Bhartia and Khandelwal said that CAT is exploring the possibilities of taking legal action in this regard. The team of CAT’s lawyers is investigating all the legal possibilities and according to the advice of the lawyers very soon, CAT will pursue legal action.
Violation of policies
He further said that it is very damaging for the laws and policies of the country. Indian Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal has warned e-commerce companies to follow rules and policies more clearly. Bhartia and Khandelwal said that Amazon is working to dodge laws around the world and confuse punishments and investigations in various countries.
