The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) has decided to release Discussion Papers on some subjects on FDI. In the series of these Discussion Papers, this is the second paper on ‘Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail trading’. Views and suggestions are specifically invited on Section 7 of the paper entitled ‘Issues for Resolution’ apart from any other issues of concern relating to FDI in multi-brand retailing. These views/ suggestions backed up by facts, figures and empirical evidence may be furnished by 31 July, 2010.
The views expressed in this discussion paper should not be construed as the views of the Government. DIPP hopes to generate informed discussion on the subject, so as to enable the Government to take an appropriate policy decision at the appropriate time.
