Tesco seeks clarification on FDI policy

Davos, Jan 25, 2013, PTI: 22:18 IST
UK-based retail giant Tesco on Thursday sought clarifications from Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma on some of the conditions that India has imposed while allowing foreign players to open stores in the multi-brand retail sector during their meeting here.

"Sharma met Tesco Chairman Richard Broadbent who sought certain clarifications on conditionalities in the new FDI policy for the retail sector," an official statement said.

It said that Sharma has assured all help to the company. "Sharma assured that all the foreign investors will be provided hand holding and asked him to voice their concerns in writing and offered all help if Tesco decides to send a team to the Department for Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) for consultation," it said.

India has imposed certain conditions like foreign retailers planning to enter the multi-brand segment having to invest a minimum of USD 100 million with 50 per cent of it in the back-end infrastructure. The firms will also have to source 30 per cent of their products from MSMEs.
