The Indian retail sector is highly fragmented with 97 per cent of its business being run by the unorganized retailers like the traditional family run stores and corner stores. The sector is the largest source of employment after agriculture, and has deep penetration into rural India generating more than 10 per cent of India’s GDP. Large Indian players like Reliance, Ambanis, K Rahejas, Bharti AirTel, ITC and many others are making significant investments in this sector.
However, the opportunity is huge-by 2010, organised retail is expected to grow at 6 per cent by 2010 and touch a retail business of $ 17 billion as against its current growth level of 3 per cent which at present is estimated to be $ 6 billion.

The players should be proactive in the approach so that the
can remain competitive and can target larger share of consumers wallet and should look for multiple format by having expansion and Joint Venture route. Proactive approach is one where one actually starts a trend which is later on followed by others. Such a methodology is termed as a proactive one.
