The retailer already has 21 wholesale membership clubs in 9 states in India that offer close to 5,000 items. The company plans to have 49 more cash and carry stores in India by 2020.

Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis was present during the signing of the MoU along with Pravinsingh Pardeshi, additional chief secretary of the CM; Sunil Porwal, additional chief secretary (industries); Harshdip Kamble, development commissioner; and Krish Iyer, head of Walmart India.
