E-commerce remains a small share of the overall retail in India, and a national policy covering it will govern this fledgling ecosystem for at least a decade at a moment where its exponential growth has just started kicking in. The draft policy, albeit withdrawn, has raised concerns across a spectrum of issues, like FDI, privacy, protectionism, etc. With a government committee looking into these issues, we will discuss them across the following three sessions:

1:45 PM – 2:45 PM​:​Session #1​, Regulation of ecommerce operations
– Regulation of digital goods
– Discounting and differential pricing
– Anti-competitive issues
– Taxation challenges

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM​:​ ​Session #2, Funding & structuring of ecommerce businesses
– Press Note 3
– Listing of ecommerce businesses
– Preferential voting rights
– Opening up inventory based B2C

4:15 PM – 5:15 PM​:Session #3, Consumer Protection & Ecommerce
– Setting up a Consumer Protection authority
– Registration of ecommerce companies
– Modification to intermediary liability protections
– Structuring of a consumer protection authority
