Small traders' forum oppose big retailer entry
Posted On: 29-09-2008 08:32:08 AM

The Federation of West Bengal Trade Associations (FWBTA), the apex body representing small traders and hawkers in West Bengal, has opposed the entry of big retailers and growth of organized retail in West Bengal saying that it would seriously hurt small traders. There are 2.75 lac hawkers in Kolkata, 16 lac in West Bengal and four crore across the country. It hurts the business of small traders and retailers in the city when big stores come up which claim to sell cheaper foods and garments. The body therefore wants the large stores to be disallowed from selling fruits, vegetables or low-priced apparel. They have also demanded that the West Bengal government have a rehabilitation or alternative in place for small-scale hawkers and traders in the face of competition from larger retail chains.
