Foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail sector.


The recent cabinet decision on FDI in retail has triggered protests by opposition and key allies of the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA), who are demanding a roll back of the policy. The hour-long meeting held in Parliament House failed to resolve the logjam in the two Houses as opposition parties, led by BJP and the Left, stuck to their stand and demanded rollback of the Cabinet decision to allow 51 per cent FDI in multi-brand retail. Though at present only 53 cities with population not less than 10 lakh in the country have been identified for FDI As the fourth-largest economy in the world in PPP terms, India is a preferred destination for FDI. During 2000-10, the country attracted $178 billion as FDI.


  • This will bring modern technology to the country.
  • Improve rural infrastructure. It would help build infrastructure and create a competitive market.
  • Reduce wastage of agricultural produce.
  • Enable our farmers to get better prices for their crops.
  • Consumers will get commodities of daily use at reduced prices.
  • Biggest beneficiary of this would be small farmers, who would be able to improve productivity and realize higher remuneration by selling directly to large organized players and shorten the chain from farm to consumers.
  • Government too stands to gain by this move through more transparent and accountable monitoring of goods and supply chain management systems. It can expect to receive an additional US$ 25-30 billion by way of taxes
  • Opening of retail can be seen as a solution for food inflation, which has been confounding policy-makers. FDI in retail would help in building much needed back end infrastructure. Additionally, he said, investments in cold storage chain infrastructure would reduce loss of agricultural produce and provide more options to farmers.


  • Our interest rates today are as high as 14 per cent to 16 per cent how do we compete with the economies which have a 4 per cent interest rate. Our infrastructure our trade facilitations our labor laws, all these factors collectively don't make India low cost. So do you want India to become a center where we allow foreign companies to come in and set up these large chains which eventually instead of selling domestic products out sourcing internationally the cheapest sources and selling those products. Please remember domestic retail normally sources domestically, international retail sources internationally because they source from the cheapest sources.
  • Even if big retail companies help the farmers in resurrecting their economy, what plan does the government has for millions of middlemen who are part of the business process chain that ensures manufactured products reach end users.
  • We engage millions of uneducated and semi-educated people at various stages of retail business spread across towns and cities but we are afraid that Tesco and Wal-Mart will only engage smart and educated workforce in small strength, comparatively.
  • Government is taking this decision in good faith. Few persons and lobbies controlling the rates of food commodities in India. And bringing more competition in market will bring better prices for buyers as well as sellers of commodities. Parties protesting against FDIs in retail have choice to not allow FDIs in the states they are ruling. Government should make a regulatory body for the commodity trade as we have for cellular services.

FDI in retail sector is ggod for India with mandatory regulatory body to assess any negative impact. As Indian agriculture sector is key sector, but reality in present scenario is that middle man supplying the agricultural products reaps the profit due to lack of proper supply chain from farmer to the market. Due o presence of major players these could be reduced.

The other important benefit of FDI is that it use the unutilized resource.

Point: having seen the issue raised on FDI,i think the indian government is not considering on future results of allowing FDI in reatail market...because if we see 60 or 70 years back then we find the foreigners came in india through indusrialization and slowly they captured the whole India and made Indian allowing FDI is intviting again to capture INDIAN market and economy and then whole, I am not in favour of FDI seeing the future of INDIA..

So , FDI shouldn't allowed as people are more important as compared to INFRASTRUCTURE , Advance Technology etc.

Date: 2012-10-10 01:50:41


Point: According to my view FDI in multibrand retail should allowed in india , because when foreign compnies will set up their business in india ,it will be a chance of employement , compettion in the market and it directly will give advantages to the common man and government can get taxes to that companies. We would be also aware to new technology .

Point: every coin has two sides In the same way fdi in retail sector has more pros and cons even though it benefits in many ways such as economic progression, inflation slow down, employment opportunities but affecting retailers and middlemen is unavoidalble, they will suffer a lot.. for ex: soft drinks with the evasion of coke and pepsi local barads like kalimark, mappilai vinayagar lose their market, but thinking about the country as a whole we need it for survival

Point: Why Indian market need foreign money when we have ample investors in our own country. Allowing FDI will only bring us foreign currencies, but people who say farmers will get more value for their product is not realistic fact because there is no clear assurance declared or given as such. If we talk about job opportunities that is the concern about Indian government who has to take decisions to motivate domestic investors and offer them to initiatives.Already there is hyper markets are established in Indian market who does same thing to purchase good from the direct sources and giving benifits to customers. money scamed by the currept politianís should be pulled back and divert into progress plans. India is not poor contry to look at others for the help to grow Indian market, we are the only can improve ourself.Indian government should focus more on exporting Indian product in foreign market instead of import other countries goods in India. Instead of encouraging Politianís with their scams with huge amount, Indian government should have to pull back black money lying in swiss bank. It is always good to encourage our own people to groove up.

Point: But allowing FDI in India would also lead to a loss of employment for many as a majority of village population earns their living through kirana stores as their only source of living...Plus this may even swoop a large chunk of the profits outside the country

Point: FDI or not is an issue same as a fight between an opportunist and an optimist. FDI would be having long term profits, but assume the scenario when Wal-marts are around you. Would you go to small retailers, even out chains like D-mart, BigB will be in loss. If it is all about agri then you motivate D-mart or BigB to buy directly from farmers.

Point: All we know the middle man or the rich people buy mostly the products from retail chain in india, consumer spending per per person/ per family is getting increased compare to the old age because we purchase based on what we gets from a super market and not based on what we require. This may create a culture in the society to buy more without much focus on our pockets using credit cards etc..

Point: India can allow FDI in multi branding retail, but it should monitor the commodity prices closely to control the price inflation to strengthening Indian Economy. And it also put restriction on Foreign Retail Company in importing importing goods and services because it will hit the domestic industries and services.

Point: By allowing fdi in retail we can minimize middle persons because we can see that because of them the rates of daily commodities are growing because they bought at 10 and sale that on 20 so we should allow fdi in retail and from fdi we will get approx 20 billion $ in way taxes and from it we can grow jobs to those middle persons

Point: The greatest advantage in allowing FDI is tax collection. Today india has a large number of small shops selling commodities. These shopkeepers sell adulterated material and also invade taxes. There is no way to monitor these small shops moreover the labours working at such shops get minimal salary and dont have any future safty for job. Allowing FDI will help oraganize the retail sector and will lead to propperous India..

Added by: Ravi

Point: According to in my point of view, fdi in retail sector should allow to india.because it will creating more employement oppertunites for all type of people,and agri produts get more fair price. Govt get more benefit of tax.all sides segment through govt get tax.

Point: i completely agree that fdi should be let in our country because government has the provision in this policy that that the company must buy at least their 30% of the raw material from the local market. this would definitely fetch the farmer the best price and as it is said that only 53 big cities are there where it will come so i think the local people would get benefited.

Point: fdi should be let in, nly if it promises to get the unemployed and uneducated people secure jobs. This wud apply nly for the people who has a small buisness but those people who have a large set up, why wud those people want to work for nybody.

Point: in my point of view if fdi will come into our country then it will be beneficial for our country in many ways, like our country today facing with some big problems like inflation,corruption etcwhich is seriously eating our country.but there is also a fear in our country people that retail stores will grab the small stores and businesses, for that i think if foreign retail stores ensure that they will provide jobs to uneducated people with educated then these will help them.

Point: when we dont have a good storage system,then its better to have a system where companies will bye products directly from farmers.It will help the farmers in a sense that they will get good value for their crops.That will also reduce the amount of middle man factor working in our country.

Point: i can see the scenario is grim,many one taking fdi wil lead the retailing system as a frontier but what abut small retailers those lively hood is dwindling and what about 40% of uneducated and downtrodden?so govt wil introspect and make a advisory body and strict law in retailing if they allow tesco walmart like giant retailing company................

Point: big retail companies will provide advisory service for the farmers that is the thing which Indian agriculture need.we have latest technology for improving productivity but farmers does not know how to use them.
