Amazon is already listed in the US and they don’t see any reason for being listed in India. Normally, the Indian arm of global corporations list in India for one of the two reasons. Firstly, it could be if the Indian operations are a substantial part of the overall global business. That is the reason, companies like Hindustan Unilever are listed as they constitute a big chunk of the global profits of the Unilever group. Similarly, companies like global pharma companies like Glaxo and Abbott that want to leverage equity to make acquisitions in India will use the equity route. For someone like Amazon, the India operations are still a small part of the overall global operation and also a very small part of their global valuation metrics. Probably, in the future, when the business in India is more substantial, they may look at the idea of listing in an Indian stock exchange.
