ONDC was incorporated with the mission and vision of creating an inclusive ecosystem of e-commerce worldwide. In developing countries, e-commerce is often out of reach for the majority of sellers, particularly from small towns and rural areas. Example: in India more than 12 million sellers earn their livelihood by selling or reselling products and services - but only 15,000 of these sellers (0.125% of the total) have access to e-commerce because online retail is dominated by bigtech platforms.
The ONDC digital public infrastructure is built on the Beckn Protocol (link to FIDE newsletter), an open and interoperable protocol for decentralised digital commerce, designed to bypass platform monopolies and offer inclusivity and access for sellers, especially small and medium enterprises as well as local businesses. ONDC is designed to dramatically increase e-commerce penetration in developing countries by enabling population-scale inclusion of all types and sizes of retailers.
