1 Review
This survey-based study analyzes the current retail marketplace in India, investigating current and projected growth across different segments of retail and evaluating the impact of allowing foreign-direct investment (FDI), currently not allowed in India. India's retail sector is positioned to transform from mostly small, family-owned businesses to large-scale chain retail, and many international brands are investigating how to enter India's retail market. The study of the structural, regulatory, fiscal and other barriers affecting the performance of retail trade suggests reforms for the removal of such barriers and provides a timeframe in which the Indian government can open its retail sector to FDI and the conditions that may be imposed on foreign retailers if FDI is allowed.
