Report: Amazon to get government nod for grocery service in India

India is set to approve Amazon.com Inc.'s proposed $500 million investment to launch an online grocery service in the country, The Wall Street Journal reported June 8, citing a Trade Ministry official.

The official said there was "no problem with Amazon's proposal" and that the government will approve it this month. India eased its foreign direct investment rules in 2016 and now allows overseas enterprises to sell groceries, as long as the products are domestically produced or processed, the report said.

Earlier this year, the e-commerce giant lodged an application to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion to stock locally produced food to sell online.
