As time goes on, the demand for e-commerce platforms in India is increasing. And as the demand grows, so does the fraud. This time, the government of India has come down to the ground after drinking ginger water to remove all the problems related to e-commerce of the customers. The government soon launch its own desi e-commerce platform in India. The central government has also formed a committee to look after the country’s e-commerce business.
Desi e-commerce platform
The new committee set up by the Union Ministry of Commerce. Initially, the committee will oversee the Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC). This ONDC is the Centre’s own e-commerce platform, which is currently in the development stage. However, a local e-commerce platform (like Flipkart or Amazon) will also be opened. With ONDC providing all the support from the past to set up a storefront infrastructure. This information was provided on November 24 by the Ministry of Commerce, The Department for the Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT).
Who will take care of this committee?
This committee has been formed with a total of 11 members. Among them is Praveen Agarwal, general secretary of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT). The 11 people who were at the committee: –
1) Joint Secretary, DPIIT (committee chairman)
2) of the e-market,
3) a representative of the Centre for Information Technology, Ministry of
4) Centre of the Ministry of Small and Medium Enterprises

8) Suresh Seth (CEO NSDL)

Why the central government suddenly needs to open its own e-commerce platform?
The real purpose is to streamline the desi e-commerce platform ecosystem. Even more important is to free the people of the country from the trap of e-commerce fraud. There are also a large number of vendors of different content in different parts of the country. Who are not allowed to sell their products on e-commerce platforms like Amazon or Flipkart. So, give them a place. There are also some products in Indian retail stores that are sold on Amazon or Flipkart at such low prices that retailers no longer sell those items.
So, open a local e-commerce platform and keep the prices balanced so that retailers are not harmed and those who are selling online can count the profits. Will this local e-commerce platform be good at all? Will. Absolutely. That is why an 11-member committee has been formed to oversee the local e-commerce platform. It remains to be seen what policy the government will come up with on its own e-commerce platform for buyers and sellers. However, it is going to be an e-commerce platform in the same way that Amazon offers various benefits to seller services on a profit-sharing basis.
