Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) members voted unanimously last week to increase the policy repo rate by 50 bps to 5.4%, taking it significantly higher than the pre-pandemic level of 5.15%.

Decoded: Why German retail giant Metro wants to exit India

The irony, however, is that although kiranas have shed their earlier suspicions, most of their 'vocal local' supporters haven't. This is particularly unfortunate for German retail giant Metro Cash and Carry's operations in India, which has benefited many kiranas across the country. When the Dusseldorf-based company entered India in 2003, a series of protests were held by activist outfits and a few local farmers' unions, claiming that the livelihood of small traders would be threatened.
