E-Commerce Laws In India

Electronic commerce (e-commerce) is all set for big growth in India. However, legal and regulatory requirements of e-commerce are stringent in nature. In fact cyber law due diligence in India and internet intermediary liability in India are very stringent.

E-commerce websites are Internet intermediaries within the meaning of information technology act 2000 (IT Act 2000). The IT Act 2000 is the cyber law of India that also governs e-commerce regulatory framework. After the passing of the Information Technology (Intermediaries Guidelines) Rules, 2011 of India, e-commerce websites must comply with valid legal requests to retain their safe harbour protections.
