The retail sector, a key sector for the country, has been hit by several problems in recent years.
Many large and small retailers are struggling with low sales, poor margins, high inflation and even cash shortage.
These problems have caused a sharp drop in the industry’s share of the country’s GDP, and have also resulted in a slowdown in the country as a whole.
The country has witnessed a sharp slowdown in both the retail sector and its economic output over the last five years.
The slowdown in growth in retail has been partly attributed to the high costs of running retail, particularly in the big cities.
In the latest edition of the Consumer Expenditure Survey, which was conducted in the first half of this year, retail expenditure per capita (CPAP) was at Rs 8,927.
By contrast, the retail expenditure of the population stood at Rs 15,935.
In contrast, consumer debt stood at over Rs 20,000 crore, according to the Centre for Monitoring India’s (CMIs) 2015 Annual Survey of Consumer Finances.
The CMIs data shows that, while the retail market is witnessing the largest slowdown in economic output in the past five years, the sector’s share in the GDP declined by 0.3 percentage points to 3.2% from 6.2%, while the share of retail and food as a percentage of GDP declined from 11.5% to 9.6%.
While there has been a slowdown at the retail and retail services level, the economy as a group has witnessed an increase in growth over the past four years.
Inflation in the last four years has risen by 3.5 percentage points, and the rate of inflation has increased from 3.6% in the year 2000 to 4.4% in 2017.
The economy has been experiencing an expansionary phase.
However, it has not been a robust expansionary one.
The Indian economy grew by 6.1% in 2016-17, but growth is expected to be revised to 6.4%-6.7% in 2019-20, according the government.
The slowdown in retail sector has caused a decline in the purchasing power of the consumer.
This is due to the large number of low-income consumers, the increasing gap between the top 1% and the bottom 99% in purchasing power, as well as the growing gap between urban and rural households.
The rise in inflation, coupled with the rising gap between top and bottom quintiles, has also adversely affected the purchasing-power of the average consumer.
In the retail-led economy, a major concern is the rise in credit card debt in the economy.
Credit card debt has risen from Rs 1.38 lakh crore in 2009 to Rs 3.58 lakh crore at the end of 2016.
According to a report released by the National Consumer Federation of India (NCFI), credit card debts are growing at a faster rate than nominal GDP in India.
The NCFI believes that by 2020-21, the credit card penetration rate is expected be around 20%.
The rise in debt is likely to adversely affect the consumer’s purchasing power and the financial security of the economy in the long run.
According the National Consumers Union (NCU), the growth in credit cards, especially credit card overdrafts, is a major cause of the slowdown in consumer spending.
The NCU believes that this is because credit cards are used to purchase goods and services that are not actually available in the market.
The NCU also believes that the rise of credit card borrowing is primarily due to a growing interest rate of 5%, which has contributed to the increase in credit-card debt.
This rate is very high and is likely not sustainable, the NCU said.
According for the NCU, the rise will likely affect the financial stability of the nation and the economy for decades to come.
The NCAI believes that retail sector is facing several problems.
According its data, the proportion of consumers with debt is declining.
According a survey conducted by NCAIs, only 10% of consumers are debt-burdened.
The retail market, which is the key component of the Indian economy, has witnessed the largest decrease in credit and debit cards usage in the recent past.
The decline in consumer debt has resulted in the rise (or fall) in credit debt and debit debt.
The growing gap in purchasing powers between the rich and poor is also an issue.
According, the NCI, the increase of credit-cards debt is a result of the fact that many of the customers are poor, low-class consumers, which means they are unable to access credit.
In addition, consumers are being hit by low interest rates and the fact they are not able to pay off their debts.
The retail sector as a sector is also facing the challenge of expanding its product range.
The sector’s growth has been in line with that of other major goods sectors such as agriculture and transport.
However the sector is now facing the challenges of expanding to other sectors such a services and consumer
