A detailed examination of issues relating to Retail in India
Continuing the trend set by Umakanth of updating issues previously explored on the blog, those who followed the brief discussion about the debate over whether and how foreign retailers should be allowed within India, would be interested in the latest issue of Frontline. The issue dated June 30-July 13 features the issue as its cover story. The lead story provides many of the factual details that discussants on the blog had enquired about. Another story focuses on the regulatory issues involved. Other stories focus on particular cities and the challenges they face in respect of retail. In all, the stories provide a lot more factual information on the issue, which should be helpful for those interested in taking the debate forward, even if they disagree with the analysis.
