New Delhi: As we all know that Summer Holidays are on and maximum numbers of us are packing our bags to reach somewhere but in order to improve the infrastructure of the Indian Railways, as many as 30 trains have been cancelled on different routes for a period of 42 days.

According to our sources, the traffic block has been imposed from June 15 to July 26 next month on the Lucknow Division due to construction at Varanasi Railway Station’s platform No. 8.

India rejects Walmart-owned Flipkart’s proposed foray into food retail business.

Published

on

The Indian government has rejected Flipkart’s  proposal to enter the food retail business in a setback for Walmart, which owns a majority of the Indian e-commerce firm and which recently counted its business in Asia’s third-largest economy as one of the worst impacted by the global corona virus pandemic.

The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), a wing of the nation’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry, told Flipkart, which competes with Amazon India, that its proposed plan to enter the food retail business does not comply with regulatory guidelines — though it did not elaborate, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Rajneesh Kumar, chief corporate affairs officer at Flipkart, told Tech Crunch that the company was evaluating the agency’s response and intended to re-apply.

“At Flipkart, we believe that a technology and innovation-driven marketplace can add significant value to our country’s farmers and food processing sector by bringing value-chain efficiency and transparency. This will further aid boosting farmers’ income and transform Indian agriculture,” he added.

While announcing the plan to enter the nation’s growing food retail market, Kalyan Krishnamurthy, Flipkart Group CEO, said in October last year that the company planned to invest $258 million in the new venture.

Flipkart planned to invest deeply in the local agriculture-ecosystem and supply chain, and work with tens of thousands of small farmers, their associations and the nation’s food processing industry, Krishnamurthy said. The food retail unit would help “multiply farmers’ income and bring affordable, quality food for millions of customers across the country.”

Several e-commerce and grocery firms in India, including Amazon, Zomato and Grofers, have previously secured approval from New Delhi, which currently permits 100% foreign direct investment in food retail, for entering the food retail business.

A Flipkart executive, who did not want to be identified, said they were “at a loss of words” to assess on what ground their application was rejected.

Food and grocery are compelling categories for e-commerce businesses in India as it enables them to engage with their customers more frequently. According to research firm Forrester, India’s online food and grocery market remain significantly tiny, accounting for just 1% of the overall sales.

In the most recent quarterly earnings call, Walmart  said limited operations at Flipkart had negatively affected the group’s overall growth. New Delhi announced one of the world’s most stringent lock downs across the nation in late March that restricted Amazon and Flipkart from delivering in many states and only sell “essential items,” such as grocery and hygienic products.

India maintains the stay-at-home orders for its 1.3 billion citizens, though it has eased some restrictions in recent weeks to resuscitate the economy.
