"We are planning to invest Rs 5,000 crore in India over the next four years," said Ali, who is also Managing Director of the Group which has operations in over 30 countries. The Lulu Group has an annual turnover of $5.5 billion globally.

The Lulu Group boss he decided to invest Indian because of the government's decision to consider non-repatriable investments by NRIs as domestic investment. Ali said the business environment in India has improved significantly with the removal of many restrictions to facilitate investment. He said the decision will help India get investment from the NRI community.

Ali, who hails from Kerala, also said his company has decided to open 12 hypermarkets in Saudi Arabia at an investment of Rs 2,700 crore in the next few years. The Lulu group currently owns 14 hypermarkets in Saudi Arabia.
