 The High Court has advised to run a public interest campaign to reduce the greed of consumers in e-commerce. The court also said that people should be made aware to prevent fraud in the name of e-commerce, reports ittefaq.
A bench of the High Court comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Mustafizur Rahman passed the order yesterday. Lawyer Shishir Monir appeared for the writ petition. Deputy Attorney General Bipul Bagmar appeared for the state.
The High Court wanted to know about e-commerce from lawyer Shishir Monir during the hearing of the writ petition. Then Shishir Monir said, ‘in our country there are many more free offers in the name of e-commerce business, which is not in the foreign companies Alibaba, Amazon. The customers of our country fall prey to greed and are deceived.’ The court then said, ‘Yes, we see, if you buy one, the other is free. The hotel is free if you buy a plane ticket.
You sue in the public interest. You should make the public aware so that they reduce greed.’ Lawyer Shishir Monir told the court that the issue for e-commerce companies in our country is that they will first offer – two motorcycles for the price of one motorcycle. Then the customers will get the motorcycle with the money and the money will go to the e-commerce company through the gateway of Bangladesh Bank. Then again, if you buy two, you will get two more free, if you buy four, you will get four more free, reports NayaDiganta.
