    Ecommerce companies are under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate for the alleged violation of FDI regulations. The companies that are being investigated are Flipkart Online Services and cash & carry chain Bharti Walmart.

    In a written reply to the Lok Sabha, Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma said, "The RBI has informed that matters related to Bharti Wal-Mart/Cedar Support Services Ltd and Flipkart Online Services, respectively, have been referred to the Directorate of Enforcement for further investigations."

    Sharma said violation of FDI regulations is covered by the penal provision of the Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999.
