India’s Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, in the Ministry of Commerce, which is looking to define India’s eCommerce policy, recently ran a consultation process seeking submissions from various stakeholders on what the future of the Internet economy in India should be like. Like we mentioned earlier, this was more of an Internet Economy policy, than an eCommerce policy.

MediaNama is compiling a list of submissions made as a part of the consultation, in the absence of the DPIIT doing that.

If you’ve submitted your comments to DPIIT, and would like them to be included in this list, please email your submissions to
