Amazon has approached the Delhi High Court challenging an order of the Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) imposing a fine of ₹1 lakh on the e-commerce platform for selling pressure cookers without Bureau of India Standard (BIS) mark [Amazon Seller Services Pvt Ltd v Central Consumer Protection Authority]. .Single-judge Justice Yashwant Varma heard the petition on Tuesday and asked the counsel appearing for the CCPA to obtain instructions in the matter.The case will now be heard on Monday. .Senior Advocate Rajiv Nayar appeared for Amazon and argued that the order has been passed without jurisdiction and the platform is only an intermediary as understood in the Shreya Singhal case.Nayar said that the CCPA order with respect to recall of more than 2,200 pressure cookers cannot be complied by it. He added that Amazon is like a mall owner and just because some shop is selling spurious apples does not mean that the mall owner can be hauled for it.“We are offering a platform. As soon as they (CCPA) pointed it out, we put them (the company selling pressure cookers) off our marketplace,” Nayar stated..However, Justice Varma questioned Nayar about why Amazon doesn't undertake a preliminary exercise about whether the seller has a BIS certificate and if such an exercise is an impossibility.He further asked whether there is any obligation on portals like Amazon to conduct such exercise as well..Nayar responded that Amazon is an e-commerce platform and it can’t cause an investigation..The CCPA had in August issued notice to Amazon to inform its buyers, recalling all 2,265 pressure cookers sold through the platform and reimburse the price to the consumers. It had also directed to file a compliance report in 45 days. The CCPA had also directed Amazon to pay a penalty of ₹1 lakh for allowing sale of pressure cookers in “violation” of Quality Control Order (QCO).
