The Indian Retail Industry is observing stupendous growth over the years, at both national and global level with the changing demographics and notable improvement in the quality of life of the urban settlement. In its 10th Annual Global Retail Development Index (GRDI) 2011, US-based International management consulting firm AT Kearney ranked India as the fourth most lucrative investment hub for retail. It is true of course, considering the high market potential and low economic risk, the Indian retail market currently ranks third globally after China and Brazil.
Organised retailing is definitely manpower intensive and it is no surprise that it is the second largest in the country.
