New Delhi: The national capital territory on Monday became the first state to withdraw permission for FDI-funded retail stores.

The Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government has written a letter to to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) on not allowing FDI-funded stores.

It was Kejriwal's predecessor Sheila Dikshit, who had okayed FDI in multi-brand retail in Delhi.

The states that allow FDI funded stores include Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Notably, Kejriwal had been opposed to FDI in retail and this was a major part of AAP's election manifesto.
