India threw its doors open to foreign supermarket chains last year in the teeth of fierce domestic opposition, but attached strict conditions, including on sourcing, in the policy.

In a meeting in Davos, Sharma told Tesco chairman Richard Broadbent that foreign investors would be provided "hand-holding" while entering the Indian market, and asked Tesco to put their concerns about the retail policy in writing, the statement said.
