Amazon asks India to relax e-commerce law

U.S. e-commerce giant Amazon said it had asked the Indian government to consider relaxing an online retail law that currently forbids its Indian subsidiary, Junglee.com, from selling directly to customers.

Amazon's global vice president, Paul Misener, had met Indian Trade Minister Anand Sharma in New Delhi, India, Tuesday to discuss the issue, AFP reported Wednesday.

"We talked about [ending the ban on direct sales to customers]," Misener said. Amazon is "trying to find a better way to serve our Indian customers, both sellers and buyers", he added.
