Traders body CAIT to launch ‘Halla Bol’ against ecommerce giants

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) on Thursday (September 9) announced that it will launch a national campaign against the global ecommerce giants who are opposing the new ecommerce rules. The top trader’s body said that the law should put these companies and small traders under one bracket, as foreign ecommerce companies are adversely impacting offline traders.

Further, the traders’ confederation alleged that companies such as Amazon and Flipkart are manipulating the government into delaying the process of turning the rules into law. The “Halla Bol against foreign ecommerce traders” campaign will start from September 15 and see participation from 100+ trade leaders with 8L+ traders from across the country.

During the campaign, CAIT will communicate with political parties across the country to understand the parties’ perspective over the rules, and then make a decision on the role of these CAIT during the Lok Sabha election. Meanwhile, the traders union will also reach out to FMCG conglomerates such as Patanjali, HUF, Tata and Unilever to raise awareness about the plight of small and demand their stand.

According to CAIT, foreign ecommerce companies will adversely affect the country’s economy, retail market. “So, consolidation of the nationalist forces has become very important,” it has stated while calling them ‘the new edition of East India Company.’
