New e-commerce rules came into effect last week under the Consumer Protection Act and consumers can now expect a much smoother online shopping experience, including having their complaints resolved within a month.

There will be several liabilities on market places as well as inventory e-commerce companies, such as setting up a nodal officer in the country to ensure compliance, appointing grievance redressal officers, and providing proper details, such as the break-up of prices on their platform.
