I have returned the background section. A history and current state of Indian retail is notable, and belongs in this article per WP:N. User @ 220.127.116.11 blanked this section out, with the comment: (Section look heavily biased against the Indian retail model and in favor of the western style of organized retail.)
The section summarizes the current verifiable status of retailing in India, and does not express bias either in support or in opposition. Constructive edits are welcome, as is a summary of real concerns on this talk page per WP:AGF. ApostleVonColorado (talk) 22:34, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
