BJD govt to examine whether to allow FDI in retail: Naveen

Bhubaneswar: The BJD government on Saturday said it would examine whether to allow FDI in multi-brand retail in Odisha.

"The Centre has left it to state governments. Therefore, we will examine it carefully," Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said.

"We will do whatever is best for Odisha and its people," he said.

The chief minister's reaction came a day after the union cabinet approved 51 per cent foreign direct investment in multi-brand retail.
