Purchasing of adult merchandises and accessories in India is still considered to be an uncomfortable experience. This is the reason why many websites have adopted the e-commerce model to sell these adult merchandises and accessories.
However, e-commerce site selling adult merchandise in India are committing criminal offences and are openly violating the laws of India, especially the provisions of Information Technology Act, 2000. Many e-commerce websites in India are engaging in punishable soft porn publication and Indian government is sleeping over the matter.
It is not the seller alone but the purchasers of these adult merchandises and accessories as well who are also exposing themselves to severe civil and criminal liabilities by purchasing the products from these websites. So purchasers must purchase products from only those e-commerce websites that are complying with Indian laws.
This is the real problem because in the urge to earn money most of the adult merchandise and accessories website India are not complying with Indian laws. According to Praveen Dalal, managing partner of New Delhi based ICT law firm Perry4Law and leading techno legal expert of Asia, Adult Merchandise and Accessories Website India are not very keen in Complying with the Laws of India, especially the Cyber Law of India. What is more surprising is the fact that even the Indian Government has not thought it fit to regulate the E-Commerce Websites operating in India, says Dalal.
The Cyber Law of India prescribes stringent Cyber Law Due Diligence Requirements in India and Internet Intermediary Liability in India that Adult Merchandise and Accessories Website India must follow. If they do not follow Cyber Due Diligence, they can be Criminally Prosecuted by the State, opines Dalal.
It seems the e-commerce websites selling adult merchandise like costumes and lingerie erotic lingerie are violating the laws of India. It is high time for Indian government to give due importance to law over private gains.
