India: Online sellers to appeal Competition Commission’s Flipkart ruling

 |  January 13, 2019

A group representing online sellers in India will appeal against the Competition Commision of India’s (CCI) ruling in favor of Walmart-owned Flipkart, the group’s lawyer Chanakya Basa said in a release on Saturday, January 12.

All India Online Vendors Association (AIOVA), which represents more than 3,500 online sellers, had complained that Flipkart was using its dominant position to favor select sellers. The CCI had rejected this argument in November.

The CCI had ruled that Flipkart, as well as, Amazon did not break regulations through their selection of merchants and brands.

The AIOVA will appeal to the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal on Monday, January 14, against the CCI decision, Basa told Reuters.
