  • Nizamuddin, Mohammed


In the present economic scenario, especially after global economic crisis, the condition of India’s balance of payment and trade deficit is very severe. Investment has made the need of hour to bridge this gap. An attempt has been made in this paper, to discuss the need of opening up the route of FDI in multi brand retail sector. The main purpose of this study is to analyse the role of FDI in employment generation in Indian retail sector. Here we assumed that FDI as an independent variable whereas employment as dependent variable. By using time series data from 2001-02 to 2009-10 and applying ordinary least square (OLS) method we find that FDI have negative impact on employment generation in retail sector in India.
