Amazon India removes products priced above MRP from its platform

Amazon India said it was removing listings and suspending accounts of sellers on its platform pricing their products above the maximum retail price (MRP) amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amid the second wave of COVID-19 and paucity of medical supplies, many sellers have tried to make extra profit by selling products at prices higher than the Maximum Retail Price (MRP).Amazon said that it was disappointed with some sellers as they were "attempting to raise prices beyond the MRP on certain products amidst the pandemic".

“There is no place for price gouging on Amazon and in line with our policy we continue to actively monitor our marketplace and take necessary action including removal of listings and suspension of accounts against sellers who are selling products above the MRP, which is in violation of Indian laws,” Amazon India said in a statement .
