Recently, Metro Shoes filed a trademark infringement case against Flipkart alleging that the defendant is retailing products under a brand recognized as ‘Metronaut’ which is similar to the eponymous brand name of Metro. The complainant added that by using the same brand name, the e-commerce company is selling several products, including shoes.

Lawyer Piyush Shah, appearing for Metro explained that the practice of selling under Metronaut, a brand similar to that of Metro reveals a case of trademark infringement against Flipkart.

Flipkart spokesperson emailed a response stating that the e-commerce firm was not familiar with any kind of legal proceeding in this regard. If they are informed via a notice by any judicial authority or court, they will definitely take the necessary measures that will prove best in the company’s interests.

There are many products that Flipkart sells under the name ‘Metronaut’, some of them are as follows:

  • Men fashion wear and accessories that was launched late last year
  • Denims, shoes, t-shirts, and shirts
  • Accessories encompassing wallets, sunglasses, and belts.

Besides operating near about 200 outlets in and around 100 cities, Metro retails the products through numerous multi-brand stores. For more visit:
