Earlier this week, the government's e-commerce platform made it mandatory for sellers to specify the country of origin while registering new products on the portal. The demand for specifying the country of origin of products sold online gained ground as India and China clash at the Ladakh border.
Following the violent face-off between India and Chinese army in the Galwan Valley in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed, there have been widespread protests across several parts of the country against China. People got down to streets to burn the Chinese flag and effigies of President Xi Jinping. There were reports and videos doing the rounds of how people were seen destroying their made-in-China TV sets and mobile phones to bits and pieces.
