CCI wing probing dealings between ecommerce companies and preferred sellers

The investigation arm of the Competition Commission of India (CCI) is reviewing documents that suggest financial dealings between leading ecommerce companies and their preferred sellers, people with knowledge of the matter said.

It has now sought more time from the commission to review these documents, found during the raids last month, following allegations of violation of competition law by ecommerce majors Amazon and Flipkart.

Originally, the Director General was to complete its investigation by the first week of June.

Some important data has been seized during the raids and the same needs to be analysed, said a person with direct knowledge of the matter. Hence, additional time has been sought.

Another person aware of the developments said the raids recovered documents pertaining to what he termed as financial linkages between the digital platforms and the online vendors. There is also information related to costs in these documents.

Deep discounting is a key antitrust issue that CCI is probing and the documents pertaining to the acquisition costs of the goods will provide more insights on who is subsidising these goods, said the person. Userwalls
