In a resolution handed at its national conclave recently, the outfit also demanded a CBI probe into the operations of Amazon, Flipkart-Walmart and other multinational e-commerce corporations, alleging that they are doing small business in India “blatantly” violating the FDI (international direct financial investment) laws.
“International direct investment in multi-brand name retail trade is controlled by the FDI Coverage. Overseas players can not have stock based product to operate (in India). They are also barred from influencing price ranges by dollars burning types. Multinational e-commerce providers these as Amazon and Walmart/Flipkart are blatantly contravening principles and operating uncontrolled in India,” claimed the SJM resolution passed at its 15th nationwide conclave in Gwalior on December 26.

Internal sources have exposed that the income is remaining routed by means of these accounts for bribing officers in India,” it alleged.
This “proves” that licenses and permissions acquired by “all these kinds of e-commerce organizations” were received “fraudulently utilizing unfair indicates”, it extra.
