In 1991, India launched a series of progressive economic liberalization policies called ""The New Economic Policy."" Since 1993, the annual rate of economic growth in India has maintained a consistent growth rate of around 6%.

Research revealed the following: 1 ) Seven of the eleven companies provided information on the locations of branches in India. Although the specific numbers differed, all seven companies have established branches in the four widely recognized regions of India: northern, southern, western and eastern. In northern India branches are located in Delhi, Mumbai in the western part, and Kolkata in the eastern part. These branches are generally called regional offices. In southern India, most companies have branches located in Chennai, but there are also some in Bangalore, suggesting that in the future these two cities may compete for new branches. There are also state branches administered by regional offices; further expansion of sales networks will probably increase the centrality of the cities in which state branches are located. 2 ) The location pattern of
