SC notice to Future Retail, others on Amazon's plea
The Supreme Court on Monday sought responses from Future Retail Ltd and others on Amazon's plea against the Delhi High Court direction to maintain status quo on the Future-Reliance deal. A bench comprising Justices R F Nariman and B R Gavai issued notices to Future Retail Ltd, Chairperson Kishore Biyani and others, and sought their replies. In February, 2021, the ecommerce major moved the Supreme Court in a bid to block Future Group's Rs 24,713-crore deal with Reliance, according to sources. Amazon has approached the Supreme court in the matter against Future, sources close to the development said. Future and Amazon did not respond to e-mailed queries.
