New Delhi, NFAPost: In a communication sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has said that the traders across the country are more willing to adopt ecommerce as another business avenue under the “Digital India” programme of the government.
But the trader’s body repeated the brazen violation of FDI policy and other laws and rules by ecommerce companies which is proving a major roadblock in adoption and acceptance of ‘digital commerce’.
The CAIT has urged the Prime Minister to order necessary action against such e-commerce Companies. To take vocal for local and Atmnirbhar Bharat campaign in all nook and corners of the country, the CAIT has suggested the formation of a Joint Committee at National, State and each District level of the Country.
CAIT National President B C Bhartia and Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said that it is most unfortunate that even being the custodian of the law, various government authorities have failed to protect the sanctity of the policy and law of the government.
They urged the Prime Minister that an ecommerce policy should be announced immediately with an explicit provision of an empowered Regulatory Authority to regulate and monitor the e-commerce business in India.
They also urged that anomalies and disparities of Press Note No.2 of FDI policy should be removed and a fresh Press Note should be issued containing explicit & speaking policy of the Government.
CAIT office-bearers said that “vocal for local” and “Atmnirbhar Bharat” call of the Prime Minister can be a game-changer for the domestic trade of the country which has immense capabilities and capacities to produce high-quality goods.
However, the campaign needs to be taken on streets and for this purpose, the CAIT has suggested Prime Minister Modi to constitute a Joint Committee of government officials with representatives of trade, consumers, civil society and small manufacturers at National level, state level and district level of every state across the country.
The trade bodies apex organisation says it will take the campaign down the line and encourage more and more people to associate with this innovative campaign which will dignify India as a most self-dependent nation around the World.
