Report: Amazon India ordered to stop selling Modicare products

Amazon.com Inc. has been ordered to stop selling products of Delhi-based direct selling company Modicare after the latter said the e-commerce giant has been illegally selling its products online, The Economic Times (India) reported Feb. 12, citing a source.

The Delhi High Court reportedly issued an interim order against Amazon's Indian arm, Amazon Seller Services Pte. Ltd., after Modicare filed a complaint, arguing that its products can only be sold through direct selling, the report said.

Modicare offers a range of consumer items, including skin care and personal care products, cosmetics, home care items and food and beverage products. It is owned by New Delhi businessman Samir Modi, who also founded the Colorbar Cosmetics Pvt. Ltd. cosmetics range and the Twenty Four Seven chain of convenience stores.

A spokesperson from Amazon India told the ET that the company "cannot comment on sub judice matters," The spokesperson added that sellers on its e-commerce platform are responsible for product compliances.

"Amazon.in does take appropriate action against sellers who are selling illegal products, as the case may be," the spokesperson told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, Pooja Dodd, the lawyer representing Modicare, reportedly declined to comment on the matter.

A quick search on Amazon.in shows Modicare products, including shampoos, detergent powders, soaps and vitamins, are still available on the website.
