Amazon and Flipkart might have to give their source code to the Indian government

Online retailers such as Amazon and Flipkart might have to hand over their site’s source code and core algorithms to the Indian government.India is already planning to mandate a 72-hour window for companies to hand over user data. It also reportedly wants unrestricted access to non-personal data of companies. 

The policy stated “It is in the interest of the Indian consumer and the local ecosystem that there are more service providers … The network effects do not lead to creation of digital monopolies misusing their dominant market position”.
