The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought the Centre’s response on a plea seeking direction to ensure that the name of the manufacturing country is displayed alongside products sold on e-commerce sites.
The PIL also sought a direction to ensure that e-tailers display the ‘Made in India’ option separately and conspicuously for consumers.
The PIL by an advocate sought the implementation of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009 and the Rules framed, which mandates that the country of origin has to be displayed on products being sold on e-commerce platforms.
The plea said the enforcement of the mandate was important in the current scenario, when citizens intend to comply with the Centre’s appeal to promote and purchase Indian goods.
“Therefore, it was essential that the country of origin is displayed on products being sold on e-commerce platforms,” the plea said.
