E-commerce laws in India are still scatters and uncertain. On top of it we have very few e-commerce law firms in India that are providing e-commerce related legal services. Even public awareness about legal issues of e-commerce is missing in India.
However, what is most surprising is the fact that almost all e-commerce players believe that starting of an e-commerce business in India does not require any legal compliance. The truth is that there are many legal requirements to start an e-commerce website in India. If e-commerce portals fail to comply with these legal requirements they can be prosecuted as well.
