Reuters reports that Walmart "has fired around 50 of its India executives as part of its restructuring in the country … The move underscores the struggles Walmart has faced in expanding its wholesale business in India. The Bentonville, Ark. based company currently operates 28 wholesale stores where it sells goods to small shopkeepers, and not to retail consumers."

The firings are said to be focused on the company's real estate division, which also is a reflection of the company's expanded emphasis on e-commerce.
