create huge employment while a new form of organized retail sector has emerged within the
retail industry and it gave speedy phase to Indian retail sector.

INTRODUCTION

India started its Retail Journey since ancient time. In Ancient India there was a concept of
weekly HAAT, where all the buyers and sellers gather in a big market for bartering. It takes a
pretty long time to step to shape the modern retail. In between these two concepts (i.e.,
between ancient retail concept and the modern one there exist modern Grocery/mom and pop
shops or Baniya ki Dukan. Still it is predominating in India So the Indian retail industry is
divided into two sectorsorganized and unorganized.

The Indian retail industry is now beginning to evolve transformation that has swept other
large economies. There is a vast change in Indian retail, the liberalization of the consumer
goods industry initiated in the mid-1980s and accelerated through the 1990s has begun to
impact the structure and conduct of the retail industry. The concept retail, which includes the
shopkeeper to customer interaction, has taken many forms and dimensions, from the
traditional retail outlet and street local market shops to upscale multi brand outlets, especially
stores or departmental stores. Hence, focusing on two aspects of retail marketing, i.e., store
retailing and non-store retailing. Store Retailing as the departmental store, which is a store or
multi brand outlet, offering an array of products in various categories under one roof, trying
to cater to not one or two but many segments of the society and Non store retailing as the
direct selling, direct marketing, automatic vending.

The most important debate concerning the implications for the expansion of the organized
retailing in India revolves around whether it is going to have positive impacts on the
economy as a whole as compared to the traditional unorganized form of retailing. According
to one camp, it has overall positive impacts in terms of generating more number of
employments, new diversified forms of employments, and improving the nature of retail
employment (higher salary, more job benefits, security of job, employability, etc.This form of
retail sector is also looked upon as a huge sector having immense business opportunities for
entrepreneurs and capital investors. Moreover, organized retailing is considered to be
efficient and apt to cater to the diversified and changing nature of the consumer demands in
growing economies like India. The general benefits of organized retail also include improved
supply-chain, improved marketability of farmers produce and it is also expected that it will
contribute to heightened economic activity.

The extensive research brought me to conclude that departmental stores are soon emerging on
the top priority lists, amongst the shopping spree in Delhi, as they seem to derive immense
pleasure as shopping is considered as an experience now rather than a task and exposure to
variety under one roof in their extremely busy lives, when they dont have time for things.

The organized retail food and grocery stores make constant efforts to induce customers to
visit the store by discount offers. Most of these stores believe in creating not just a marketing
activity with its customers, but rather favor relationship building with him so as to convert
first time customers into a client. They provide better parking facilities to customers and the
facility to examine the product. They also offer a wide range of payment options to
customers. India is currently the twelfth largest consumer market in the world.

According to a study by McKinsey Global Institute, India is likely to join the premier league
of the worlds consumer markets by 2025 improving its position to the fifth. But this growth
is not going to happen is smooth way. Any change always comes up with some friction and
Indian retail sector is and will be witnessing the same friction. Indian retail sector is still in its
nascent form if we consider its full potential.

While most of the developed market of US and Europe and also some SE Asian emerging
market economies have reaped the benefits of modern retail, India has not yet entered into
advanced phase of modern retail forms. Unorganized retailing, on the other hand, refers to the
traditional formats of low-cost retailing, for example, hand cart and payment vendors, and
mobile vendors, the local Grocery shops, owner manned general stores, paan / beedi shops,
convenience stores, hardware shop at the corner of your street selling everything from
bathroom fittings to paints and small construction tools; or the slightly more organized
medical store and a host of other small retail businesses in apparel, electronics, food, etc.

Small-store retailing has been one of the easiest ways to generate self-employment, as it
requires limited investment in land, capital and labor. It is generally family run business, lack
of standardization and the retailers who are running this store they are lacking of education,
experience and exposure. This is one of the reasons why productivity of this sector is
approximately 4% that of the US retail industry. Unorganized retail sector is still
predominating over organized sector in India, unorganized retail sector constituting 98% (12
million) of total trade, while organized trade accounts only for 2%.

The road side hawkers and the mobile (pushcart variety) retailers. The grocery stores (the
Indian equivalent of the mom and-pop stores of the US), within which are: (i) Open format
more organized outlets, (ii) Small to medium food retail outlets.

Modern trade or organized retailers within modern trade, we have:

(i) The discounter (Subhiksha, Apna Bazaar, Margin Free);


(ii) The value for money store (Nilgiris),
(iii) The experience shop (Food world, Trinethra),
(iv) The home delivery (Fabmart) Tug of war:

ORGANIZED VS. UNORGANIZED SECTOR

Future of retail sector in India is swerving-on one side organized retail is marching into life of
urban consumers, while on the other our own

neighborhood Grocery stores are resisting fiercely with their existing strong foothold. India
today is at the crossroads with regard to the retail sector. A shift between organized and
unorganized retail sector is evident, which has led to a number of speculations on the fate of
Indian retail. Unorganized sector cannot ignore.

In any newspaper or television channel, we find hordes of news about happening in organized
retail sectors, which is indeed fairly real situation. While the role of organized retail sector in
growth of economy cannot be denied, but one thing is also of extreme importance that
unorganized retail format is a support to a large chunk of population providing direct
employment to 39,500,000 individuals. So there is no way that government or anyone can
discount these foundation stone of Indian economy.

CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF INDIAN

Consumerism the face of Indian consumerism is changing: not Indian consumerism is


evolving from Bajaj Scooter family man to Bajaj Pulsar trendy youngster. This changing
consumers taste and lifestyle, somewhere automatically give some advantage to organized
sector. This makes imperative for unorganized retail sector to restructure itself in order to
withstand the increasing competition and to meet consumer expectations by moving with
trends. What they can do and what they are doing, some of these issues will be discussed in
future parts of article.

RETAIL TRENDS IN PAST FEW YEARS

Before the decade of eighties, India with hundreds of towns and cities was a nation striving
for development. The evolution was being witnessed at various levels and the people of the
nation were learning to play different roles as businessmen and consumers. The foundation
for a strong economy were being laid, youth were beckoning new awareness in all spheres.
And this brought in an opportunity for retail industry to flourish. First in the metros and
major cities later to impact sub urban and rural market as well.

Retailing in India at this stage was completely unorganized and it thrived as separate entities
operated by small and medium entrepreneurs in their own territories. There was lack of
international exposure and only a few Indian companies explored the retail platform on a
larger scale. From overseas only companies like Levis, Pepe, Marks and Spencer, etc., had
entered targeting upper middle and rich classes of Indians. However as more than 50 %
population was formed by lower and lower middle class people, the market was not
completely captured. This was later realized by brands like Big Bazaar and Pantaloons who
made their products and services accessible to all classes of people and today the success of
these brands proves the potential of Indian retail market.

A great shift that ushered in the Indian Retail Revolution was the eruption of Malls across all
regional markets. Now at its peak, the mall culture actually brought in the organized format
for retailing in India which was absent earlier. Though malls were also initially planned for
the higher strata, they successfully adapted to cater to the larger population of India. And it
no wonder, today malls are changing the way common Indians have their shopping
experience. However there is still great scope for enhancing Indian mall culture as other than
ambience and branding many other aspects of Retail Service remains to be developed on
international standards. It is surprise that there was not a single mall in India a decade before
and just a few years ago only a handful of them were striving, today there are more than 50
malls across different cities and 2 years from now around 500 malls are predicted to come up.
Indeed this shows a very promising trend ahead, however before taking a leap into the future
of Retail in India, lets see what the Indian retail Industry is currently occupied with.

8
Retailing means Re-tailing to the customers so that they come back towards them. Retailing
consists of all activities involved in selling goods and services to consumers for their
personal, family, or household use. In 2004, The High Court of Delhi defined the term
retail as a sale for final consumption in contrast to a sale for further sale or processing (i.e.
wholesale).India is the 2nd fastest growing in the world. It is 3rd largest economy in the
world in terms of GDP and fourth largest economy in terms of Purchasing Power Parity.
India presents a huge opportunity to be used as a hub to the world. India is the promised
land for global brands and Indian retailers A Vibrant Economy.

Retailing in India is progressively moving towards becoming the next fastest growing
industry. According to A.T. Kearney, retailing accounts for $410 billion and organized
retailing accounts for only 5% of the above market. According to the Global Retail
Development Index 2012, India ranks on 5th among the top 30 emerging retail markets. The
recent announcement by the Indian government with Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in
retail, especially allowing 100% FDI in single brands and multi-brand FDI has created
positive attitudes in this sector. Retail industry in India has a huge growth potential and
opportunities existing in multiple sectors and segments. For a long time, the corner grocery
stores (kirana stores) were the single choice available to the consumers. But with the LPG
policy in 1991 the international formats of retailing paved their way in India. As the time
passes, organized retailing especially has been creating curiosity amongst Indian consumers
to sketching them into malls for shopping in huge numbers.

However the growth in organized retailing has been limited primarily to the urban markets in
the country. Even the large chunks of unorganized retail have not fell depressed from this
nominal growth in organized retailing and have tried to restructure and redefine themselves
by introducing self- service formats, and value-added services, such as credit and home
delivery. To safeguard the position in the market retailers have made an attempt to attract
customers by offering newer service dimensions and creating unique shopping experiences
for the customers. Perceptions about these retailers are largely determined by tangible
characteristics of stores, such as format or size, proximity, varieties available as well as
intangible factors like the store atmosphere, complaint handling, etc.

9
Growth Drivers of the Retail Sector The Indian retailing sector is at an inflexion point where
the growth of organized retailing and consumption by the Indian population is going to take
a higher growth trajectory. The Indian population is observing a noteworthy demographics
change. An increasing young working population under age of 24 years, sharp rise in the per
capita income, an increase of dual income nuclear families in the urban areas, along with
increasing working women population, internet revolution and emerging opportunities in the
services sector are going to be the key growth drivers of the organized retail sector in India.
The whole model of shopping has altered in terms of format and consumer shopping
behavior pattern, which ultimately could lead to a shopping revolution in India.

Retailing involves all activities incidental to selling to ultimate consumer for their personnel
family and household use. It does this by organizing their availability on a relatively large
scale and supplying them to customers on a relatively small scale. Retailer is any
person/organization instrumental in reaching the goods or merchandise or services to the end
users. Retailer is a must and cannot be eliminated.2 The retail industry is divided into
organized and unorganized sectors. Over 12 million outlets operate in the country and only
4% of them being larger than 500 sqft (46m2) in size. Organized retailing refers to trading
activities undertaken by licensed retailers, that is, those who are registered for sales tax,
income tax, etc. These include the corporate-backed hypermarkets and retail chains, and also
the privately owned large retail businesses. Unorganized retailing, on the other hand, refers to
the traditional formats of low-cost retailing, for example, the local kirana shops, owner
manned general stores, paan/beedi shops, convenience stores, hand cart and pavement
vendors, etc.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE

REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Kearney, (2006) found that traditional markets are transforming themselves in new formats
such as departmental stores, supermarkets and specialty stores.

Munjal, Kumar, & Narwal, (2011) through their research concluded that the kirana shops
being affected by malls is only a myth. He further concluded that in spite of the available
opportunities to the organized retail to grow in India these kirana shops also were benefited
from this growing economy.

Sivaraman.P, (2011) from his study concluded that the impact of organized retailers was
clearly visible on the business of unorganized retailers in terms of sales, profit and
employment. Due to their financial infirmity these small retailers continuously struggled to
introduce changes in their existing retail practices. Some kind of intervention was required
for their future existence.

Ali, Kapoor., & Moorthy, (2010) in their study indicated that consumers shopping behavior
was influenced by their income and educational level while gender and age had no significant
impact on their behavior.

Nair & Nair, (2013) in their study revealed that the perception of service quality was
influenced by various natures among various customers and some of the general factors like
personal interaction, physical aspects on which customer perception remained constant and
common

Singh & Agarwal, (2012) revealed that customers preferences for grocery shopping were
gradually shifting from local kirana stores to organized convenience stores. Brand choice and
credit card facilities were the main determinants which influenced preferences from kirana to
organized retail. Payment through credit cards increased purchases from organized retail
store.

Sinha & Banerjee, (2004) in their study concluded that store convenience and customer
services positively influenced consumers store selection.

Srivastava, (2012) in his study showed that the overall customers perception across urban
and suburban was not varied. The customers were ready to pay higherprices for branded
goods across the urban and suburban areas.

17
They gave priority to purchase grocery from nearby shops while for purchasing of apparel
they liked to travel some distance. The outcomes of the study showed that the exposure of
marketing strategy through electronic and print media made the customers more choosey and
knowledgeable.

Gupta, (2012) concluded in her study that store attributes like convenient operating hours
and accessibility were the factors which lead to customer loyalty and not store appearance.
Similarly,product attributes like freshness of the product and availability of products range
according to the pocket were major determinant of loyalty. It was also evident that even today
Kiranas arepreferred by customers because of various reasons viz. convenient location, home
delivery, personal relations with shopkeeper, giving products on credit, payment in
installments.

Kumar, & Narwal, (2011) through their research concluded that the kirana shops
beingaffected by malls is only a myth. He further concluded that in spite of the available
opportunities to the organized retail to grow in India these kirana shops also were benefited
from this growing economy.

Aaker, Jones, David, & Morgan, (1971) concluded that consumers socio economic back
ground, their personality, and past purchase experience were those factors upon which the
customers decision lied.

Solagaard & Hansen, (2003) identified several store attributes that were considered
important for the consumers evaluation of stores. These attributes were merchandise,
assortment, merchandise quality, personnel, store ayout, accessibility, cleanliness and
atmosphere.

Purohit and Kavita(2003) according to their studies that the traditional retailers are not very
much clear about the consequences of the modern retailing the traditional retailers are neutral
or undecided, modern retailing will cut the profit margin of the traditional retailers; the
modern retailing will lead healthy competition in the market, modern retailing will reduce the
sales volume of the traditional retailers and traditional retailers should improve customer care
services in the era of modern retailing.

18
Shaoni Shabnam (2002) It is important to highlight that in organized retail, the status of
employment is much better than that in unorganized retail. Hence it is definitely desirable
that more and more labor gets absorbed in this sector of retail. In the current context, the
labor employed in unorganized retail stands unfit for finding employment in organized retail.
If appropriate training and skills could be imparted to them, it is possibly feasible to offer
better forms of employment to them in the organized retail sector.

Meeta Punjabi (2004): According to their study they suggest that the development efforts in
this area are based on three grounds: First, farmers associated with the modern value chains
earn higher returns than selling to the traditional markets. Second, the modern supply chains
have specific quality requirements which are easier to meet by the large and medium farmers
and the small farmers tend to get left out of these markets. Third, there are several successful
examples of linking small farmers to these modern value chains with effort from government
agencies, NGOs and development agencies. This knowledge presents strong grounds for a
closer look at the emerging sector in India.

The unorganized retailing in the vicinity of organized retailers has been adversely affected in
