The question is, did you try to answer straight what I asked in spite of pretending you didn't.
Now if you seriously didn't get it, it was in regard to your post :-

Do you seriously think that you really know the difference between 'factual' and 'actual' dealings of big business houses in India and that too on daily basis?

I don't know what an "idealised" supermarket is, but what I want, as I said above, is a nice large, clean, cheap place to do my shopping where I know no evil has been done.
Now how on earth you'd define "no evil" on a local supermarket? And define what should be in an practical world, not what you wish it should be.


[And I really don't support Walmart's business strategy though]

Regards.

starvation rate in India and near by Asia is rather large, cutting down another big foreign Western brand will get you nowhere.

Big foreign Western brands have nothing to do with starvation rate in Asia. Do they?

AAJ KA TAAJA KHABAR (TODAY'S HOT NEWS).

Walmart is partly in violation of the packing commodities act in India which mandates that all packages should have certain basic information like manufacturer's name and address, year and month of manufacture (for all commodities), maximum retail price (including all taxes levied), expiry date for perishables (usually mentioned as something like "6 months from the date of manufacture" etc).

Looks like inspectors in the Southern state of Andhra Pradesh noticed this in some (admittedly a few) products sold in their stores and have booked a case. Seems that either Walmart has been bilked by their supplier (who didn't tell them the law - ignorance of law is no excuse) or some functionary in walmart took money from the supplier to pass the package.

Maybe walmart got bilked at the stage of selection of officers itself and haven't got a quality sytmem in place. Chee chee chee. One doesn't expect this from wally.

OK
