  3. 3.      Key  Players  in  Indian  Retail Industry In India  Retail Market  “The secret of successful retailing is to give your customers what they want. And really, if you think about it from the point of view of the customer, you want   everything: a wide assortment of good quality merchandise; the lowest possible prices; guaranteed satisfaction with what you buy; friendly, knowledgeable service; convenient hours; free parking; a pleasant shopping experience." Sam Walter – Founder Walmart Corporation India is one of the fastest growing retail industries in the world over the last couple of years. It is the fifth largest in the world and third largest in Asia after China and Japan. The retail industry is divided into organized and unorganized sectors. The former refers to trading activities carried on by licensed retailers and the latter refers to traditional formats like kiryana stores. Traditionally the retail market in India was largely unorganized, however, with changing consumer preferences, organized retail is gradually becoming popular. The last few years have seen an immense growth in this sector, the key drivers being changing consumer status and demography. The government policies are becoming more favorable and emerging technologies are facilitating operations. With rising disposable incomes, expansion of stores and supporting economic factors, Indias retail sector is expected to grow to about $ 600 billion by 2014, according to a report by global consultancy and research firm. TRADITIONAL AND MODERN RETAILING: THE INDIA STORY   Traditional retailing continues to be backbone of the Indian retail Industry, with traditional/ unorganized retailing contributing to over 95% of total revenues. The classic mum & pa   family retailing outlets forms the major part of retail market. More than 12 million retail outlets exists in India as against China with 2.7 millions. Retail Sector in India is primarily   categorized by the type of products retailed, as opposed to the different retail formats in operation. The food and beverages accounts for largest share of revenues. The Indian consumer behavior of preferring proximity to food and grocery retail outlets is highly evident. Retail  Formats  In  Apparels, mobile, consumer durables are also equally growing in the retail market in India.

  7. 7.    Retail Industry In India  GREEN LIGHT FOR SINGLE-BRAND RETAIL REFORMS On January 10, 2012, India approved increased competition and innovation in single- brand retail. The reform seeks to attract investments in production and marketing, improve the availability of goods for the consumer, encourage increased sourcing of goods from India, and enhance competitiveness of Indian enterprises through access to global designs, technologies and management practices. In this announcement, India requires single-brand retailer, with greater than 51% foreign ownership, to source at least 30% of the value of products from Indian small industries, village and cottage industries, artisans and craftsmen.   Globally, Single Brand Retail follows a Business Model of 100% ownership and global   majors have been reluctanct to establish their presence in a restrictive policy   environment. The current cap of 51% confers a right to pass all ordinary resolutions, while enhancing the cap to 100% will confer full ownership and control, “DIPP had earlier said in a statement.

Sanity mainly, people would go crazy in boredom. Entertainment can be anything like a movie show, a concert, dance show, comedy show etc. And, people when gets this entertainment means through a mouse click, they get excited. Online Entertainment Shop is a great business opportunity that unites the entertainment industry with the internet. Let’s consider starting an online entertainment coupon service. The business concept is very straightforward. First, you need to design a website that is indexed into various entertainment services and products such as musical concerts, plays, movies, etc. in different parts of India. The next step is to approach companies and businesses within the entertainment industry to advertise discounts that apply to their specific products and services on the website. Visitors to the entertainment coupon website would be   only a few clicks away from locating and printing a discount coupon for the entertainment event or product they were seeking. The business would gain revenue by charging the entertainment companies a monthly fee to advertise on the site and post their discount coupons.   And, the start up costs is also not so high. You can start the Online   entertainment business by investing Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 1, 00,000   For more info on Business setup visit        P a g e  | 7                                                                                             For Business setup queries email at   or call at 011 40622239
