Traders body CAIT today demanded that its views be taken on the proposed policy on the e-commerce sector. The Confederation of Indian Traders (CAIT) said its representative was not invited in today's stakeholders meeting on the e-commerce policy.

This is a "step motherly treatment to domestic retail trade", it said in a statement.

"It's very disgusting that we are regularly making complaints against malpractices of e-commerce companies but government chose to avoid traders," CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said.

It alleged that the government is allowing e-commerce companies to control, dominate and distort retail trade.

"The e-commerce companies are free to flout FDI policy of the government, even after many complaints," it added.
