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 has raised concerns across a spectrum of issues, like FDI, privacy, protectionism, and more. With the government itself likely to open discussions on this soon, we have the following plans for both Delhi and Bangalore:

01:15 PM – 02:30 PM Session #1, Governance of E-commerce businesses & its ownership
