We are well poised towards achieving that, focused on different aspects of the economy which will take us there," the Union Minister said on Monday at UK-India Joint Economic and Trade Committee meeting in London. He added, "We have opened up opportunities for single-brand retail and are easing some detrimental clauses of our policy in next few weeks which will help single brand retail come in a bigger way to our country. We have restrictions on multi-brand retail & have requested companies around the world to respect Indian sensitivities on restrictions of foreign investment & multi-brand retail. Particularly e-commerce companies coming to India would have to ensure that they stay within the letter and spirit of the law when it comes to multi-brand retail and our policies around that," he said.
