“In single brand retail, there will not be a pause, its a good beginning .... The Cabinet has approved both (single and multi-brand retail). There is a pause when it comes to notification of the decision taken that is for multi-brand retail for now,” he said.

The government had suspended its decision to allow 51 per cent FDI in multi-brand retail due to the logjam in Parliament over the issue.
