In a recent development, the Indian government has now banned ecommerce companies like Amazon or Flipkart from selling their own products online. Ecommerce companies will no longer be allowed to sell their own products, which includes products of companies they hold shares in, since it creates a conflict of interest. These companies will also no longer be able to enter into exclusive deals and agreements with the sellers. And this measure will be put to effect from Februrary 1, 2019.
