"I don’t know where they get it from." Judge: That's why we’re cautious. Salve: "I said if the allegation is of burn, if I’m giving a discount in my rental to somebody, what’s wrong. That becomes, Flipkart now admits in court that it is influencing prices and it is violating FDI"

"Your Lordship was mentioning about being careful about who is hearing. I have suddenly read in the newspapers arguments such as my client has been influencing prices, that I have argued before your lordship that my client is entitled to tell sellers what price to fix"

Amazon's counsel Subramanium says marketplace can do logistics, warehousing. Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) is not a preference being given. We have 75,000+ FBA sellers. The motto of Amazon has been consumer dictates the prices. All sellers can be seen, not one is left out from search

To be clear, traders say sales of Amazon, Flipkart favour select sellers. The proposed rules contain this line on flash sales ban: "Provided such sales are organised by fraudulently intercepting the ordinary course of business ..with an intent to enable only a specified seller"

A Tuesday morning example of "flash sales" and how they are widely used in India.  As per new proposal, “Flash sale” means a sale organized by an e-commerce entity at significantly reduced prices, high discounts or any other such promotions.
