Display of Country of Origin for Ecommerce Mandatory
Now displaying the name of the manufacturing country for the products on a Ecommerce Website mandatory.
The Delhi High Court issued a notice to Central Govt on a PIL seeking directions to mandate displaying name of country of origin.
The bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan, issuing notice, also asked the petitioner to serve the petition copy to all the respondents through email and slated the matter for hearing on July 22.
It also sought directions to the Union of Inidia to ensure that any ecommerce entities display the products manufactured in India first following products manufactured by other countries when searched by consumers.
However the same was never enforced before for the ecommerce companies.
The nations economy would suffer in the event ecommerce websites continue to not mention the manufacturing country.
Moreover seller whi had already uploaded their products are being reminded to update the country of origin, failing which their products will be removed from GeM.
