After Amazon, Flipkart challenges anti-trust probe

Reuters New Delhi | Updated on February 21, 2020 Published on February 21, 2020

walmart’s flipkart has filed a legal challenge against an anti-trust investigation ordered against the company in india, a court filing seen by reuters showed, following a similar petition by its rival amazon.com inc.

the competition commission of india (cci) in january ordered a probe into alleged violations of competition law and certain discounting practices by the two e-commerce giants, but a state court put the investigation on hold last week following a challenge by amazon.

flipkart's legal filing was aimed at signalling the company is aggrieved by the cci's probe order, a person familiar with the matter said.

in its court filing, flipkart argues the cci ordered its probe without initial evidence that the company's practices were harming competition. flipkart said the cci order was “perverse (and) passed without any application of mind”.

“such an order exposes responsible corporate entities ... to the rigors of an intrusive investigation prejudicially affecting not only its credibility and reputation, but also its commercial prospects,” said flipkart, urging the court to quash the probe.

a spokesman for flipkart did not comment on the contents of the filing, saying it was a “procedural matter”. the case is likely to be heard next week. the cci did not respond to a request for comment.

amazon and flipkart have faced criticism from indian retailers who accuse them of violating local laws by racking up billions of dollars of losses to fund deep discounts and discriminating against small sellers.

the anti-trust probe was ordered after a new delhi-based trader group complained that the e-commerce giants were promoting select sellers and in turn hurting business for other smaller players.

flipkart, in its filing, said the cci had “failed in its duty” to close the frivolous complaint and an investigation would harm the company's reputation, lead to significant managerial time loss and legal costs.
