HC stays e-comm entry tax in Uttarakhand
In what is being seen as relief for e-commerce majors, Uttarakhand HC has granted an interim stay to Flipkart on the levy of entry tax

These include major names, such as Yes Bank, L’Oreal, Micromax, Intel, Gillette, Datsun and Sony, who have signed up to the new platform.

Brand Story Ads is a native, interactive story format with content images and product guides that lets brands tell their stories to their target audience in a crisp and effective manner.

The first stage will concentrate on creating awareness with stories of brands that have signed up for the initiative, their category pages and their products. The second phase will include listings and checkouts.

Flipkart is extending this service to third party brands across sectors like real-estate, FMCG, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), auto, and telecom.
