With globalization and liberalization of Indian Economy in last two decades, numerous domestic and international companies have been drawn to investing in new modes of business/ business models targeted at the huge domestic market especially in the consumer goods & services. Direct Selling is one of these modes where goods /services are sold directly by the producer/service provider to the consumers. For this different models such as Multi Level/Network marketing, Door to Door Selling, Online Selling, Tele-shopping are being used. These practices are new and different from traditional retail through shops. In the absence of a proper regulatory framework, retail through these models leads to consumer grievances, trader’s issues, slow growth of the sector etc.

The aim of this discussion is to deliberate and evolve views of all stakeholders for providing a regulatory framework to the sector.

Hello Sir, Whenever we used to buy some product worth amount for which shopkeepers had to return 1 Re to customer, often they give a toffee. Though 1 Re is not a big deal,but several 1 Rupees can amount to a large sum . It is a kind of theft on shopkeepers part or they are taking advantage of the customers.So there is a need to check on these kind of thefts. Either raise the excise duty on such toffees or card payment transactions only allowed for that. I hope govt. will definitely think over it
