How and why would they be encouraged to come online? First of all, why would an offline retailer want to take his business online? Because somebody else is out there online taking away their sales. With majority of the online-only big retailers neutralized, what will drive the offline retailers given that they can evade taxes and dictate their own terms offline with little to no regulation in practice happening on them? Nothing. They may still maintain some online presence, but there is nothing to drive them online. Sure, increasing the reach a bonus, but at the end of the day, it all boils to sales volumes, if they can get fair volumes even with offline sales and with higher margins than usual, there is no motivation to jump online. So, yeah, while this may benefit them at the expense of customers, I don't see these rules being motivation for going online.[DOUBLEPOST=1546071855][/DOUBLEPOST]I was browsing amazon for Note 9 the other day, and saw an amazon prime fulfilled offer by a seller called Samsung World Bhopal (dont remember exact).
So, for such sellers, which have a shop, and online presence, it is a boom, no?
I think this will enable more offline sellers to come online, rather than vice versa.
So, you think Amazon or Flipkart will pay Pappu just to "resist" it rather than using that money to lobby with the govt directly? I think the people @ Amazon and Flipkart have better IQ and business sense.No my frn Papu may get $$$ to resist it (defend it in LS/RS) always check both side of coin
