Relaxations are expected in a provision where foreign retail traders are presently allowed to adjust procurement of goods from India for their global operations for meeting the mandatory local sourcing requirement.
However, this is allowed only for five years and "incremental" sourcing of goods from India is only taken into account presently.
"Amendments and easing are also likely in this provision," the sources said.
The move comes in the backdrop of announcements made by the government in the Budget.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget speech had said that local sourcing norms will be eased for FDI in single brand retail sector.
In January 2018, the government allowed 100 per cent FDI in the sector, permitting foreign players in single-brand retail trade to set up own shops in India without government approval.
In February 2006, the government for the first time opened the sector for foreign players by allowing 51 per cent FDI.
In January 2012, the cap was raised to 100 per cent - up to 49 per cent through automatic route and beyond that with the government approval.
During April-September 2018-19, FDI in India declined by 11 per cent to USD 22.66 billion.
