A petition has been filed before the Supreme Court seeking directions to the Government of India to formulate a law compelling e-commerce sites and business houses selling goods to declare the country of origin of products in order to differentiate Chinese products and boycotting them.

The petition moved by Advocate Divya Jyoti Singh said that revealing the country of origin for products will help in boycotting Chinese products.

“ There is a wave flowing in the country for boycotting the Chinese products, by non-disclosure of the ‘Country of Origin’ on the web-portals, these giant business houses/ e-commerce portals are not only playing with the patriotic feelings of the Indians but also are proving fatal in the efforts of each and every citizen of India in boycotting the Chinese products and also are blocking the way in promoting the local manufacturers/brands as called for by our Prime Minister so that the country becomes self-reliant as is the need of the hour.”

The petitioner has prayed to amend the Section 2 (9) of the Consumer Protection Act to add that the consumer’s rights shall also include the right of the consumer to know the ‘Country of Origin’ in the e-commerce portals.
