Don’t permit FDI in retail in small businesses’ interest, BUVM tells PM

In a letter addressed to India’s prime minister Manmohan Singh, the Bharatiya Udyog Vyapar Mandal (BUVM) has stated that using foreign direct investment (FDI) in India’s multi-brand retail business as a ruse, multi-national corporations (MNCs) – which have the Centre’s permission to set up shop in the country with relaxed norms – are forcing local small and medium businesses to down their shutters. It further urged him not to permit the same in India.
