Amazon Removes Numerous Products from India Site as New e-Commerce Rules Bite

International

New Delh: E-commerce rules that went into effect in India on Friday caused widespread disruption for Amazon.com, forcing it to take down an array of items from its India website, including Echo speakers, batteries and floor cleaners.

Two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said the products began to disappear from the Amazon India site late on Thursday as it began complying with the revised norms before a midnight deadline.”The company has no choice, they are fulfilling a compliance requirement … customers will suffer,” said one of the sources.
