FDI: Walmart, Tesco seek reassurance 20.6.2013 deccanherald.com
Global retailers like Walmart and Tesco have sought assurance from India that any change of governments at both Centre and states should not result in reversal of FDI policy in the multi-brand segment.

Bentonville-based Walmart has also raised apprehensions about the ongoing probe by investigating agency Enforcement Directorate, said an internal note of the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

"Some prospective foreign investors have discussed plans for investing in multi-brand retail trading (MBRT) in India. They have generally conveyed that they have to address (certain) apprehensions of their Boards while taking investment decisions," the note said.

The main issue raised by Walmart and Tesco was that "the next government could reverse the MBRT policy. States which have at present opted for opening of front-end stores in their territory can opt out at a later stage".

How supermarkets get your data – and what they do with it 8.6.2013 The Guardian -- World Latest
It doesn't matter if you are part of a loyalty scheme, pay by card or even cash, 'Big Brother' supermarkets know your every move We all know supermarkets use information about our shopping habits to target us with personalised vouchers and offers – but how would you feel about sitting down to watch a movie and being confronted with adverts based on what was in your shopping trolley a few hours earlier? Or what would you think about Tesco using its Clubcard database to check what you are eating, and possibly offering vouchers for salad and fruit if your basket is usually groaning with unhealthy items? These are just two of the ways the supermarket giants are planning to make use of the data they gather on us. For every loyalty point or coupon that Sainsbury's , Tesco and the like dish out, they gobble up a huge amount of information about our shopping habits. We are all familiar with targeted offers linked to loyalty cards, but you might be surprised at the amount of data the big ...
