There has been an intense debate in the Congress about the same as both Democrats and Republicans share very different view on the same. The general feeling in the middle class Indian family is that if this is enforced it would steal jobs and earning from farmers and other small time retailers which would end up losing more jobs and create a scene of unemployment. On the other hand there can also be a solution where as companies like Wall Mart decide to create more employment for the people who will lose their jobs by this investment and the . but looking and studying about the same foreign trade should be under strict vigil and not at the cost of Americans jobs and People. If this happens India would also join in the ranks of countries which will be dependent on foreign imports rather than exporting their own products. India is one country presently which has caught eye of the whole world specially the west. One of them being Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) which would enable giant companies like Wall mart invest and open stores in India with more easy rules set for them.

At the same point of time they should set rules which won’t burden companies investing in America which heavy taxes and very high labor cost as they are already losing jobs to countries like China.
