D-Mart superstore in Mumbai attacked
Posted On: 19-10-2007 13:12:15 PM

Protesters opposing the entry of private retail giants forced a superstore in Mumbai to close down, the first such attack in the city. Display windows and panes of a store belonging to Indian retailer D-Mart were broken with stones and sticks, forcing its owners to close it down.
Fearing loss of livelihood, traders, farmers and small shopkeepers have been opposing plans by foreign and local companies to introduce western-style supermarts into India's retail market. Those against private retail say 40 million jobs will be lost, against the 2 million that modern retail promises to create. The attack on the D-Mart store was the first in Mumbai, indicating the discontent against private retail was not limited to smaller cities, where most earlier attacks on superstores had taken place. Reliance Industries Ltd., India's biggest private company, decided to delay plans to open hundreds of superstores in the north and east of the country after a number of its stores were shut down following protests.
