After Flipkart, Amazon also challenges Karnataka HC order on CCI probe in Supreme Court

Amazon, Supreme Court, confederation of all india traders (cait, Flipkart, CCI, karnataka high court, Amazon India, last Friday's Karnataka High Court order, reported on Tuesday, ordered the probe

Amazon India has also moved the Supreme Court challenging last Friday’s Karnataka High Court order, which cleared the way for the Competition Commission of India (

CCI

) to probe firms like the Walmart-owned Flipkart and Amazon India, a person aware of the matter said. Court filings showed that Amazon has filed a plea challenging the high court order.

ET reported on Tuesday that Flipkart had filed an appeal in the apex court to stall the CCI probe. Amazon India did not immediately respond to ET on Wednesday.

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) and the Delhi Vyapar Mahasangh (DVM) have already filed caveats in the Supreme Court, seeking that they be given a hearing before the top court gives any ruling or directions on the matter.

The two trade bodies had filed complaints against Amazon India and Flipkart to the CCI. Their allegations include that e-commerce firms are offering deep discounts — which are predatory in nature — to customers, as well as favouring select sellers working closely with online marketplaces.

The HC bench comprising Justices Satish Chandra Sharma and Nataraj Rangaswamy had termed the appeals by Flipkart and Amazon India as “devoid of any merits and substance” and that it deserved to be dismissed.

Last year in January, the CCI had ordered the probe against both the etailers saying it had “prima facie” evidence to start such an investigation under Section 26 (1) of the Competition Act.
