Indian Direct Selling Association (IDSA) has announced Rajat Banerji, National Head Corporate Affairs at Amway India, as its new chairman.
"Our immediate aim is to work towards a policy framework for direct selling with the Government and stakeholders. We will encourage and maintain an environment where members can operate independently and ethically" said Rajat Banerji.
Amway India CEO William Pinckney has been arrested twice over the past two years on alleged charges of unethical practices and subsequently released.
The IDSA, affiliated to the World Federation of Direct Selling Association, comprises 60 direct selling associations globally.
The association has been lobbying with the government to form laws to differentiate fraudulent direct selling schemes from genuine ones.
