Industry associations such as Nasscom, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) seek an extension of March 9 deadline for feedback on the draft ecommerce policy published by Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT),  said sources familiar with the matter.

Industry members held discussions through FICCI, Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), sources told CNBC-TV18.

The government on February 23 released the draft national ecommerce policy proposing setting up a legal and technological framework for restrictions on cross-border data flow and also laid out conditions for businesses regarding collection or processing of sensitive data locally and storing it abroad.

The 42-page draft addresses six broad issues of the e-commerce ecosystem -- data, infrastructure development, e-commerce marketplaces, regulatory issues, stimulating domestic digital economy and export promotion through e-commerce.
