New Delhi: The government is in the final stages of drafting the national logistics policy, new industrial policy, e-commerce policy and national retail trade policy, Som Parkash, Minister of State for Commerce and Industry, Government of India, said on Wednesday.

The new National Retail Trade Policy, said Parkash is being formulated to support the development of the sector that will benefit 65 million small traders. "These endeavors along with the support of the industry would help in contributing a significant chunk to India’s GDP," he said addressing a virtual event by industry body FICCI.

The government has in the past made public its efforts towards developing a National Retail Trade Policy that is said will create conducive environment for retail trade including by simplifying rules and regulations hindering the growth of retail sector. It has already put out a draft e-commerce policy.
