It is not the government's responsibility to take care of the customers who have suffered in e-commerce, says the minister

Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi on Friday said that the government is working against the irregularities and corruption of e-commerce companies.

"The irregularities and corruption of e-commerce companies are being investigated," he told reporters after inaugurating an expanded showroom of commercial jewellery company “Diamond World Ltd” at Golden Tower in Dhaka as the chief guest.

The minister said that there are some 20,000 e-commerce companies in the country and a lot of people are involved in this sector.

"The government wants e-commerce to do well. However, ten to twelve e-commerce companies have been accused of irregularities and corruption and investigation continues against those companies," he said.

Tipu Munshi said that it is not the government's responsibility to take care of the customers who have suffered in e-commerce.

"Consumers suffered when they went to buy products at low prices. They did not inform the government to buy products at lower prices," he said, asking why the government would take responsibility for their losses.

Regarding the increase in the price of onions, the commerce minister said that the price of onions has gone up in India due to rains.
