By reopening the case regarding FDI in multi-brand retailing, government has shown itsinterest to take the case forward with caution.
Looking forward for the benefits of FDI in the back-end infrastructure, the governmentis sanguine to open its gates for the multi-brand retail sector. Currently, there is noprovision of FDI in multi-brand; 51 per cent is allowed for single retail brand and 100 percent in wholesale trade.
Some companies that are likely to benefit from this decision are Pantaloons Retail,Provogue, Shoppers Stop, and Trent. Also, the various companies which can divert theirroutes to India include Metro from Germany, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy etc.
The likely course of action by the government is allowing FDI in consumer electronicsand sports goods retail in the first phase. In the second phase, the percentage of FDI mayincrease from 51 per cent to 100 per cent in single brand. After assessing this calibratedapproach, the government would take a step further allowing FDI in the multi-brandretailing.
