Alibaba penalises sellers evading taxes in India
NEW DELHI: Days after the government’s crackdown on goods being sent to India in the guise of gifts by Chinese e-tailers, e-commerce giant Alibaba said it has taken action against thousands of sellers on its platform who have been caught in the act.
Officials in the Indian customs department last week said large shipments from Chinese e-commerce platforms have been landing on Indian shores, marked as ‘gifts’. Shipping goods as gifts allows an entity to avoid paying duties and taxes, as the government exempts gifts of up to Rs 5,000 under existing laws to allow NRIs to send them back home to relatives.

It''s time for starting a movement " Buy what''s made in INDIA". We have a population of a billion and don''t have to look else where to market it. Sure quality was an issue earlier, but things have changed n our products are up to global standards if not better. Swadeshi Movement 2.0

Such illegal practices be stopped at once by e-commerce companies. When Indian authorities take action then they make hue and cry.

The unscrupulous sellers are so greedy that they abuse each and every excuse to avoid tax and readily make so much noise when some regulations and reforms are imposed.

It is ONLY the citizens who can make the difference. No amount of law can curb these cheap products landing in Indian markets, unless the citizens themselves patriotically avoid buying any foreign products, even if it is a bit costlier in Indian makes. Indian citizens, please avoid e-portals and explore your neighboring markets, you will be doing a good thing for the future India. Especially, avoid all the cheap PRC produces.

By nature, I am sorry to say, we are corrupt. Always talking of high ethics and moral values, but in reality, majority of Indians are corrupt by heart. Sorry to write this, but it is fact.
