Govt to soon consider proposal to relax local souring norms for FDI in single brand retail
PTI, Aug 25, 2019, 1:32 PM IST
New Delhi: The government will soon consider a proposal of relaxing rules for complying with the mandatory 30 percent local sourcing norms by foreign single-brand retailers, official sources said.
As per the proposal, single-brand retail firms would also be permitted to open online stores before setting up brick-and-mortar shops.
Currently, online sale by a single-brand retail player is allowed only after opening of physical outlet.
Relaxations are expected in a provision where foreign retail traders are presently allowed to adjust procurement of goods from India for their global operations for meeting the mandatory local sourcing requirement.
However, this is allowed only for five years and “incremental” sourcing of goods from India is only taken into account presently.
“Amendments and easing are also likely in this provision,” the sources said.
The move comes in the backdrop of announcements made by the government in the Budget.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget speech had said that local sourcing norms will be eased for FDI in single-brand retail sector.
In January 2018, the government allowed 100 percent FDI in the sector, permitting foreign players in single-brand retail trade to set up own shops in India without government approval.
In February 2006, the government for the first time opened the sector for foreign players by allowing 51 percent FDI.
In January 2012, the cap was raised to 100 percent – up to 49 percent through automatic route and beyond that with the government approval.
During April-September 2018-19, FDI in India declined by 11 percent to $22.66 billion.
