Chinese e-commerce company Shopee, dealing with a controversy over FDI violations in the nation, has been struck by an FIR submitted by a customer in Lucknow for apparently defrauding him.In the FIR, submitted at the Mohanlalganj police headquarters in Lucknow on January 15 and seen by IANS, the complainant Shashank Shekhar Singh said that he ordered items online from Shopee on December 10, however what he got were replicate products.The FIR has actually called Shopee, its moms and dad company Bengaluru-based SPPIN India Pvt Ltd, and senior business officials.According to Singh, he purchased three items worth Rs 840, Rs 399 and Rs 1,299 from Shopee. What he received were not the items revealed on the platform but the fake variations, implicating the e-commerce platform of defrauding him.Last month, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) prompted Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal to ban Shopee, which it claimed was running in India against FEMA Rules and FDI Press Note of 2020. CAIT accused the Chinese e-commerce business Shopee of breaking the rules.Shopee is a Chinese e-commerce giant which has actually commenced its operations in India through an entity, SPPIN India Pvt Ltd, held by 2 holding companies, SPPIN I Pvt Ltd and SPPIN II Pvt Ltd, both signed up in Singapore, the traders body declared in the letter.” These two entities are, in turn, held by another parent business SPPIN Ltd, registered in the Cayman Islands. This complex structuring of entities is nothing however an attempt to hoodwink the Indian government and instill Chinese funds into India,” CAIT secretary basic Praveen Khandelwal wrote in the letter.The traders body also alleged Shopee of adopting “predatory rates strategies”, thereby distorting competition in the market.The Delhi High Court in November asked Centres to reply on a plea seeking to block ecommerce websites and mobile apps operated by SPPIN India Pvt Ltd under the name of Shopee.FacebookTwitterLinkedin
