The company’s operations are fully compliant with Indian laws and business regulations. The company is a good corporate citizen in all aspects, including compliance and all tax matters which are duly lodged and filed accordingly.

We want to assure you, our IRs that QNET is a legitimate business with a 17-year global history. The lack of legislation to govern direct selling companies in India has at times wrongly resulted in QNET being accused of running a money circulation scheme. QNET has been actively advocating for legislation to help legitimate direct selling companies distinguish themselves from Pyramid and Ponzi schemes that operate under the guise of direct selling.

QNET is an advocate for professional marketing and ethical behaviour of its IRs.  The company takes significant measures in working transparently and standardising ethical business practices. Our IRs, as distributors, are held to a very strict code of ethics and are held responsible for misrepresenting the business. We encourage that any misrepresentation be reported to the compliance department via email to our support center. We have already reached out to the public through a number of published public notices in leading newspapers around the country.

Thank you for your continued support. Join us in advocating for legislating this powerful industry that has helped so many people.
