    On September 14, 2012, the Indian government announced that it would relax restrictions on foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail. This economic reform will allow multi-brand retailers to invest up to 51% in local ventures. However, the regulations give each Indian state the authority to approve or disapprove foreign direct investment in multi-brand retail in their respective states. So far, a few states, including New Delhi and Maharashtra, have provided their approval. Numerous American and other multinational retailers have been eagerly waiting for this opportunity to tap into India's 1.2 billion population. In our program, we will provide a brief overview and analysis of the Indian laws and regulations that permit foreign investment in the multi-brand retail sector, the ramifications of a state-level liberalization of the sector, and the practical implications for foreign and domestic retailers seeking to structure their operations to take advantage of the new regulations. This program is a must-attend for general counsels and practicing U.S. and Indian lawyers.
