Bezos arrived in India on Tuesday. On alliance between the United States and India, he said that it will be most important in 21st century and is “going to be the Indian century”.
The billionaire e-commerce magnate may also hold a meeting with senior government officials, sources have said.
Amazon has committed $5.5 billion in India investments and sees the country as a key growth market.
Bezos’ visit comes at a time when the Competition Commission of India (CCI) is investigating into alleged violations of competition law by India’s largest online retailers Amazon and Flipkart.
The order for the probe comes after trader communities across the country levelled several allegations of violations of FDI (foreign direct investment) in e-commerce, along with the ones mentioned above against the online giants.
The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), which is spearheading a nationwide stir against the e-commerce giants called the order by CCI “historic”.
