Amazon forced to pull products from India

Amazon has been forced to remove a range of products from its website in India amid a clampdown on market regulations.

New rules prevent online retailers from selling products through vendors in which they hold an equity stake.

Amazon and Flipkart lobbied against the laws, which aim to protect small businesses.

Small retailers in India have long pushed for tougher competition rules, arguing the major players have an unfair advantage.

Certain clothing brands have disappeared from Amazon, as well as the company’s own range of Echo speakers, its Presto-branded home cleaning goods and other Amazon Basics products such as chargers and batteries.
