NEW DELHI: Commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal told Parliament on Friday that the government is considering formulating a national e-commerce policy but has not fixed a deadline for it.

“The formulation of National e-Commerce Policy is under consideration of the government, for which no timeline has been fixed,” Goyal said in reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, adding that a draft policy covering various areas of e-commerce has been prepared and put out in public domain for comments.

The minister said meetings have been held with industry stakeholders, e-commerce companies, associations of kirana stores, traders and retailers to discuss matters relating to e-commerce and that their suggestions have been sought on the draft policy. Goyal said the views and suggestions received are under consideration.
