Amazon and Flipkart, multiple products have already vanished from Amazon India website within days of policy implementation. The estimated number of products taken off goes up to 4 lakh,
As per Hindi newspaper Amar Ujala, products taken off goes up to 4 lakh after policy implementation. The revised policy norms have pushed e-commerce marketplaces, which are funded by foreign investors, in damage control mode as they are now prohibited to sell goods of vendors in which they have equity stakes and to have exclusive marketing tie-ups.
Amazon-backed vendors such as Cloudtail and Appario, as a result, are no longer selling on the platform. The rules have forced the company to take-down its key grocery service Amazon Pantry and also withdraw different products such as sunglasses and floor cleaners from its India website.
The products started to disappear from Amazon India website late on Thursday in accordance with the midnight deadline to comply with the revised rules, Reuters quoted two sources as saying.
