I dont think that multinational companies are devils in disguise. But there might be lot of pressure to complete a project. sometimes we have to work day and night to complete it forgetting our family life.And there will b a huge compitition at work. if we consider these reasons very tough then yes its devil in disguise.

Think the number of options both in job market and in productsthey brings.Yeah..they do create more compitition, but thats what creates option! The Problem is......

Well, no, they are not giving any pressure. bcz of our wrong estimation only cause this much pressure. Our Team MAnager giving wrong study of project estimation, this will leads to work in nights and all. They will give lot of oppurtunities to us. but even though most values also add to our nation and more generation also adding. we can say they compensate our financial condition evenly. if they didn't come to india then, india will slave to many countries. so they gave more support to us. thanks and regards, Mohanraj.M

Hi, Surely investment made by MNC in INDIA is useful for India.We should be proud on ourselves that they r ready to invest on us.Still they get the required thing from us,they r ready to invest.The major problem in India is unemployment.But their investment paves the way to the eradication of this problem.After the placement in the company we should make the company as a team.We should not think that they r foreigners to us and they should not think that we r foreigners to them.When we enter the company we should think the deveopment of the company and we should also have in mind that all r one.They r giving recognition to indians.The stress is not only in MNC's.It is also in local companies. SO the investment in india is really worth.

No, they are not Devils in Disguise, Where there is a source of wealth every one move to utilise utmost resources. (as ANTS will move to Sugar.....) As the MNCs are Investing Alot In India, It is because of the More Intellectuals are there in India, For these they Provide so many facilities to employees In the other way Yes one of us already specified It is becuse of the Improper planning only they will put Presure On the Employees. And one more thing they can get their work be finished very cheaply (it regards payment of an employee) and Quickly

No i don't think so.These MNC's make the country economically strong.Many multinational companies were ready to investin india.This reduces the unemployment problem and also it will bring focus of other countries towards india. Disadv Even though high salary is provided the pressure given by the company is more. Indians work in MNC's as low cost employee when compared to US.

Though there are some disadvantages like we get less salary for more work when compared to the foriegn pay scales.And our intellectual property is used by the foreigners. But they play a very important role now.As we are poor compared to developed states there is no other go ,we need to work for even less pay .

But here the main problem with this globalisation is ..

people will go crazy about MNC (not only software & hardware but also there are many food , health , Machines etc etc ) products .. May be because of the quality & cost. If the product quality is good & cost is less than indian based products then 100s of indian based companies need to shutdown their business globalisation Edited by: Njoy

In my opinion, all multinational companies are not devils in disguise except few like coke, pepsi, and dow chemicals. If we look at our unemployment rate in India a few years back it was inexorable. But due to arrival of foreign companies in India unemployment rate has gone down drastically. I think in today's scenario we usually talk about [a few of them are esoteric and technical jargons] share market, FDI, FII, economic indicators like GDP, Export-Import, and so on. But all these are very important for india's growth. One should not forget that we need huge foreign funds for our physical infrastruture like roads, ports, and telecommunication. Only these companies can slosh such amount by opening manufacturing facilities, R&D centres, call centres, and BPO offices in India. Because, i think by getting a job in these companies a person will earn more and when he will earn more then he will spend more. As we know that earnings and spendings are directly related to the government's earning as well as it will help in to enhance one's social and financial stature. In conclusion, i would say these companies are devils but well-wishers.

No they are not devils in disguise.because of them indian government get lot of money and the popularity all over the world.they bring as to the front of the other nations.basically india have a huge man powers,but india is not have afford to give jobs to all.the mnc companies are mostly approaching india coz indians ve the masterminds,sincereity and also the physical powers.in behind of that the main reason is indians accepting their low salaries than what they give to the foreingers and we r all the hard workers.In their business mind and the competition with the other companies they do some pressures on the workers.when compared to our nation companies the mnc gives more salaries.but they should treat as like other nation on the salaries.

Are Indians Less Quality Conscious?
Posted by Admin on Monday, May 16th 2011

Quality is a part of life. In fact, quality determines of the fineness of any product and determines the efficiency, its market viability and sales. Quality consciousness is a parameter of measuring the consumer behaviour and the production and policies related to innovate, design, create and sell a product. Indian quality consciousness can be known from the research for their brand awareness. This poses questions, whether Indians are quantity conscious or quality conscious.

Arguments against to quality consciousness of Indians

Economic status of the country determines the purchasing behaviour. Being a country witnessing low earnings of income, consumers are not much quality conscious. The reasons contributing for less quality consciousness of Indians are, ignoring quality are availability of alternative products for cheaper price, because of higher rates of the products that are imported, branded, market diversification is a challenge for the spending of an average Indian. Buying decisions changes with a change in geographical and product availability variance. While producing qualitative products the factors contributing for the low quality is law of ethics, scarcity in availability of raw materials used for production, illegal diversification of politicians and other anti-social elements make the availability of materials in black market that are brought for higher prices that shows affect on producing quality products. Apart from this inadequate technology and unawareness to follow the standard operating procedures, underdevelopment of skills required for quality production is the reasons for poor quality production in India. No proper governance should also feel responsible for lack

Arguments towards quality consciousness of Indians

High income driven by the growth of Information technology and its allied services is fetching big money for Indians, that they are much conscious about the quality than ever before. The quality may be conferred to production terms or consumer behaviour. On the other hand brand awareness has increased due to change in the lifestyle inspired by westernized countries. Cross cultural transformation and increase in innovativeness, quality consciousness, brand awareness made them take care for a qualitative choice making in product buying. Indians quality consciousness in production increased due to governments initiative to import the top edge technology and development of skills through special knowledge centers and the momentum offered by Indian corporate companies in making right usage of these facilities made the Indian made products as fore runners in all markets around the world. Quality being priced and awarded Indians are moving forward with more quality consciousness than ever before.

As per my opinion that Indians are taking more concious by and by toward the quality.As we that Consumer is king..India is the second largest country all over the world . Every want to buy branded products.but reason they cannot afford because for their annual income.As we know In India More people are belong in middle class family and below poverty line so that why even they can n't take good quality food. India is developing country more mnc are keening to open the good class mall and showroom to provide better quality of products.But why they are opening these malls in city area.because they know better villagers will not take interest because of the money problems..

Hello friends I think, the no of foreign companies here itself shows how indians are concerned about the quality. Every thing here is not like the older centuries people afford for good quality items rather than buying cheap items. Though there are thousands of advertisements coming people, mainly youngsters know what they want and they do not satisfy with things that are not worth. Quality has nothing to do with high cost. Nowadays we could see shops selling branded products even in small shops. People have variety to choose and nowadays people concentrate on reliable products only.

Indians buy the products according to their budget with high quality in that. Indians are very intelligent in choosing the right one to their budget with good quality. For example if a new company introduce a mobile which have all the features of a smart phone and the most popular company have less features than that company and having same price. Which one will be choose by an indian? my answer is popular one. Because indians don't want to put their money in risk. So they go for popular one. . When samsung launched mobile only few of people buyed it and others observed that, is it a good one or not. Now you can see lot of peoples have samsung mobile. From this we can observe that indians have high quality conscious within the budget.

As India is a not-so-rich country,people here mostly think about their profits.If talked about the consumers,they need a quality in less rates and sellers sell a normal quality piece in much higher rates with discounts that still make a good profit. So in all Indians are much more interested in making a profit and not quality.

Quality of a product doesnot always lie in its price. A quality product may be cheaper or sometimes maybe costlier. Choice of a product among its substitutes depends on the budget and needs of a person. Indians are concerned about quality as well as their pockets which is the only reason which saved India fro a hard blow of recession.

Firstly, a quality product does not mean branded product always. A quality product might mean jst hygenic for somebody and only branded product for the other.For diffrent classes the word "quality" differs. For a family who is below poverty line jst filling their is more then enough,for a middle class family hygene is important and a rich family wont compromise then the best product of the market. As India is basically middle class and below middle class they dont even know the names of the "branded and quality products". In short for India the Question is not about their choice ,ITS ABOUT THEIR ABILITY AND AFFORDABILITY!!

They buy any local product or any forgine product which is coming at low price. But rest of people are more aware of qualities of product because they have knowledge and also financial good. So. With knowledge our can become less conscious of quality.

Asif said: (Sun, Aug 21, 2011 12:28:37 PM)

Quality depends on our financial condition and knowledge of the products. In India large section of people are below poverty line who don't even get proper food and so they cant think about quality. But affording something and being conscious of something is two different thing because poor people can be conscious about quality but they just cant afford it due to lack of money.

As mentioned above knowledge of product is also important in our choice. Most of us just don't know much about products .Just going by brand names is not choosing quality. So proper knowledge about things is also important in deciding the quality . As far as most of the government works are concerned , they are not of highest quality as we can see from the kind of roads and bridges being made some of which don't even survive for 6 months.

As being an civil engineering student I think that quality must be preferred first because to cheat people is not of use. If we give the quality work & the people are satisfied by our work there is possibility of getting more customers is very high. By this we can earn more profit. But some of the people only think of themselves. If the people are getting the same amount which he has said to the customer & on that also he does not gives quality then the customer has all the rights to tell the concerned person to do the work in a proper manner.

I think we indians are partialy quality concious. For some goods we totally depend on quality and for some we depend on price only. This means that indians have a very clever mind. Before buying a product we first consider its efficiency or it's usefullness or durability in life. If the product is related to our health or our life we will definately keep the "quality" term in mind. Because we can't take risk with our health. The indians are "price concious" rather than quality when it comes to a product related to fashion or other unnecessary products. So it is not fully true that indians are not quality concious.

Indians are definitely quality conscious. But in my view Indians don't exactly know much about quality. Moreover we are carried away by brand names and cost...We forget that good quality products can also be obtained at low prices. Lets for example consider somebody goes to buy a shoe. No one will even have a look at shoes of Brands having names other than Reebok, Addidas etc. Nobody will look for any other brand... This nature of Indians help traders to sell them certain goods at higher prices..

Friends according to me it is not exactly correct to say that we are less quality concious. Now days whenever we go to buy any electronic item than first thing we will notice is that from whcih country the item has been manufatured?so if it from country like china than we will definately not opt for it, because electronics item of china is of less quality but of less price. But if that similar item with similar function is made up from country like japan than irrespective of money most of us will opt for it. This is one of the example about awareness of Indian in selecting quality product. In now days Customer is King so how can a king compramise with quality of product?

Yes ! Definitly we indians are very quality conscious, but this quality consciousness makes us to live in a myth. The myth is that all the foreign goods are better than our own supplies. This is the reason behind the slow progress of our companies. This is the reason behind India still being under the status of "developing countries " and not under " developed countries ". Being quality conscious is good but we should keep in mind that every foreign product is not always better than the products we get in our own markets. So we need to respect our Indian goods also.

This proves that we Indian people are quality conscious n we ourselves don't respect Indian goods. Why don't we realize that self-respect comes from self-reliance.

In my views, in India there is existence of every kind of personality obviously there thinking, mentality, principles are also different. But we cant say that every Indian is less quality conscious. But if we compare urban and rural resident people, then we will find that rural people firstly check the prices of items before purchasing something. If that item's prices are so high in that case they can satisfy their demands in less price able things. In the case of high prices they will satisfy their demands in a less price able thing even with less features. Mostly girls always prefer

color and shining wearable things n tops. As we know that every coin has two aspects, there so many Indians who are very quality conscious, for these people prices don't matter.It depends upon their principles, preference,importance.

Here I think every one is in a mis-conception that a comodity's cost determines its quality. But here I'ld like to point out that there a slight difference between quality goods and costly goods. Its not necessary that a costly good may be of good quality and a good that is inexpensive may not be of bad quality. Lets take an example. Many brands like reebok, addidas, bajaj, honda, etc, launch new products every now and then in the name of experiment, but how many of these products really survive in the market - a handful. Most of these products lack to satisfy the customers and hence fail. But aren't these goods expensive. Of course they are. Now viewing the other aspect. Many ready to eat junk foods are available in the market. Surely they are costlier than their counterparts at roadside thelas and dhabas. But I have seen people getting out of air conditioned cars and relishing the road side gol gappas. Ask yourselves, which ghee would you prefer, given a chance to select between nicely and attractively packed, preservaties added Ghee you get in AC malls and the one made of butter after churning the curd in front of your own eyes, which one would you choose? Now compare which one is costlier? So there is no relation between expensiveness of a product and its quality. Have you ever seen parents whether rich or poor asking their children to have unhygenic food to save money. Oviously they prefer better quality food. So in my point of view Indians are quality conscious.

Hey, As per my concerned Indians are too much quality conscious because if we see in India consists 28 states among them there are 7 to 8 metro-politician city they are fully developed because the majority of people are too much quality conscious for their living of standard, and also there are so many companies which are running in rural area with its effectiveness such as:- FM CG sector, FMCD sector, telecommunication companies they are going as far as good. Matter is behind for rural people is don't know what is quality so it is very clear that Indian are quality conscious.

INDIA country with second largest consumers in the world. Its very difficult to put all the people in the same basket and label it with less conscious people. There is not even a single person in the world who doesn't want to wear branded clothes, who doesn't want to eat quality food. Its money that obviates them to do that and they are right in doing so and in a country like India where more than 37% people are living below poverty line expecting a quality conscious people is madness. As I have stated earlier we cant label every person with the same tag, so when it comes to rich people they are obviously quality loving people, that can be seen by new malls opening in small cities and newer brands hitting the markets every odd day. So concluding to all, in my opinion its a trade off between your money and quality.

Hi friend As per my point of view really we Indian are quality conscious. Why because As per the the top most multination company want to do their business in India. Like now days take a example of Walmart they want to enter in our Indian Market. Really Customer is king Not only in India but all over the world. Because each and every company want to give better quality and service also for getting back customer satisfaction. And if we talk about rural sector in India than also again story is same. Many company tergting and positioning their product in rural sector not only expend their business only but also make a good relation with the customer of rural area. Rural people are also Quality conscious. For example have you seen any rural people to use local brand of the product which is available in the their nearest market. ? Absolutely not. So they are also quality conscious. But lac of product availability they are not able to purchase the quality of product. Thanks.

They compromise with the choices and go on purchasing cheap things although they may be not so good in quality. This limitation can be removed by properly organizing our society.

They have to make them satisfy with the quantity. But the things are changing fast, people are diverting their minds towards the quality issues and are not ready to compromise on any degradation in the standards. When we talk about quality one more picture flashes. That is the brand power. Question arises that do the company encouraging the brands, are doing justice to the customer' money or involved in making large profits by adulteration. India is a developing country so its the duty of each citizen to seek justice for the prices they pay and government should be accountable for such quality issues. Compromising on quality to get quantity is a "Round the circle process"- we buy low standard commodities at a low price and then have to spend again for its maintenance, the difference price that we saved or more than that. It may be in case of food, clothing or other things we buy. Due to the economical constraints people in India are forced to accept the low quality goods and are condemn to compromise because of lack of knowledge, finance, and social ideologies. To make INDIA a developed country we should adapt a slogan " Customer is King and.

So there is inequalities of income and and the person who is earning 10k cannot afford to but expensive products and the people who's earning is 10k is much more than those of earning 1 lac. Therefore he has to compromise with less quality product.

Most of the communities in India (such as Bengali) , are succumbed in 'Culture of Poverty' (a theory introduced by an American anthropologist Oscar Lewis) , irrespective of cl-ass or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is at all ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst Politico-administrative system, weak mother language, continuous absorption of common space (mental as well as physical, both). We are becoming fathers & mothers only by self-procreation, mindlessly & blindfold. Simply depriving their (the children) fundamental rights of a decent, caring society, fearless & dignified living. Do not ever look for any other positive alternative behaviour (values) to perform human way of parenthood, i.e. deliberately co-parenting of those children those are born out of ignorance, real poverty. All of us are being driven only by the very animal instinct. If the Bengali people ever be able to bring that genuine freedom (from vicious cycle of 'poverty') in their own life/attitude, involve themselves in 'Production of Space' (Henri Lefebvre) , at least initiate a movement by heart, decent & dedicated Politics will definitely come up.

We Indians are Quality conscious only to some extent. Our mentality restricts us from being more conscious because

we Indians are content with whatever we have & are always thank full for whatever we get. So this prevents the thirst for better quality seeking. It depends on every individuals perspective of what he thinks as Quality. For example one may think Nokia as a good quality product, but others may not think the same. The definition of quality itself varies among different class of people. For some people Pepe jeans may be the highest quality product but for people of lower income group jean which lasts longer becomes the good quality product. As far as Indians are concerned the products with high price tags are of good Quality but eventually this need not true in every case. I think India will surely develop this consciousness in no time because of the increasing literacy rate off lately.

Hello I think yes that indians are less quality conscious. Just imagin if your parents earning 5000 rs per month and they have 4 child then how can they pay attention to the quality of the product. Actuly in India there is big valley in the rich and poor class nera about 70% peoples belongs to the middle class or the poor family and they are striving for their meal for two times then how they choose the quality of the product. Because of limited pocket money they gives prefer to those product which is cheap in compair to another branded product. If we take an example of the t-shirts then hardly the price of one t-shirt is 150rs n if thats from the branding com. It will takes 300rs from customer then how can the peoples afords that who are belonging from the middle class. And I think as ramdevbaba says if the black money comes in India from swiz bank then every one will be pay attention to the quality of the goods. Then there is no poverty line, no corruption takes palce in India.

If any one want to bye a good quality devise the shopkeeper say something about other kind of devices he is trying to convince us finally we buy something which is told by shopkeeper. And quality is depends on our thinking. I will give an example one man earning 50rs per day his family was eating rice with pickles only so they are thinking pickles is the food equal to chicken or something else.

Well I favour this topic upto a certain extent. As we know india is a developing country, still about 37% of the people of india is living below poverty line. And in such a scenario you expect people to be quality oriented is definately not acceptable. Today bpl families are still striving for their 2 meals. Still we see small children begging on traffic signals and outside temples. So can we expect such people to wear branded clothess??..hee.ee... definately not. I would also like to bring your attention to the news which hit the headlines when tonnes of food grain was rottened up. The supreme court suggested to distribute them for free to the bpl families. Now what is that, if we would have been quality concious then the highest authority of india.."THE SUPREME COURT" shouldnt have made such statements. because they also know situations where india is living. Though there is improvement in living standard of middle class and high society people but the real india till today is known for its slums, dirt,filth,beggars,corruption,etc. So can we say india is quality oriented?

1)Indians are not less quality conscious, they just want to make most of what ever they have. That is why they bargain at shops,cause for the amount of money they have they want to make the fullest. 2)Also quality differs in the different levels of society, but we cannot say that the lower strata in society is not quality conscious.Buying a good brand item is not the only way to ensure quality.Even when women from lower strata, when they they go to buy cloth they do check the quality of the cloth, but just cause they cant afford to buy the most expensive showroom material stuff, we cannot say they are not quality conscious

3)Even if India does lack somewhere it is trying to improve and educate people about quality.There are a lot of awareness programs, advertisements on TV and news papers, which make people aware and conscious of quality. Like recently there have many television advertisements about how to ensure you are buy good quality gold, diamonds etc.

I think Indian are not less quality concious because all want to purchase good quality product. And today consumer are king of market. He is completely free to bought any product of any brand. But every body can not afford costly items. But every body finds cheaper and good quality product. When we go to market then we choose good product on the base of our pocket money. So it's mostly depend on the pocket. Because MNC, s is not only the way of goo product. Some Indian companies provide good quality product in affordable rates. As Example Addidas shoes rate minimum is 1800 Rs but Lakhani shoes minimum rate is 830 Rs but the quality and duration of performance of both is approximately same as per my experience. But some time we have to compromise with quality due to shortage of o say Indians are not unconscious about their quality.

And how do we define quality anyways? For lower income groups, unadulterated 'mota chaawal' rice is a finest quality. For middle class people, anything does, as long as its well processed, etc. And higher classes consider eating only the finest Basmati available. When we withdraw money from ATM, we immediately complain if the currency notes are even a little bit soggy. And believe it or not, but the local rickshaw-walas, which earn at most Rs.300 per day, are themselves conscious of the currency notes they are getting. One tear in the note, and they will reject it. So how can we say that the lower income earning group is the one who has to suffer with low qualiy? Consider this...at every level of the social ladder, the best quality marker is different. While Quality consciousness is innate in every human being, it depends on what they have in hand that decides what is best for them. You can't expect some hot-shot like say, Amitabh bachchan, to come to your home and think, "Their lifestyle is of best quality"...nopes. He sits on a different level of quality marker.

The most important thing is definition of quality. A person define definition of quality by what is offered to him as quality. As an individual from childhood itself, several encounters with different elements, individuals, situation build that definition of what is good and what is bad. Few examples. Surrounding he lives in, treatment at school, the road one travels, quality of water, food, service of any kind, treatment from government, quality of their teacher, treatment at the place one works etc etc. The quality is also a relative term. One define its own quality definition and

according to that what is best to him may not fit even acceptable to other. Example, tea served on road side vs tea served at 5* hotel. Person build that definition over a period of time from surrounding environment and what he gets is what he can deliver. Let us take an example, In India, when you go to by some electronics to a reputed store and buy an LCD TV, if he delivers a working tv on time with engineer sending to your home to fix that on same day, its good quality. May be in developed nation expectation would be to explain all features, guide customer properly without marketing one company, asking dimension of room, fitting that TV at proper height taking care of all necessary additional things like length of cable to power, home theater, and last taking back TV if customer does not like that. With smile of course. And more. Not selling same used piece to other customer displaying as fresh. The entire definition/standard is different. If first experience happens in developed nation, customer may not accept that. If later experience happens here in India, people will say seller is fool.

And at that time quality automatically compromise because no seller or shopkeeper wants to loose their buyer or customer and then he will show poor quality n large quantity in a same price which attracts people more because duplication of items are available in market very easily and many shopkeeper store n sell its for all types of customers.

Therefore the people want a lot of thing in low price and this make a lot of corruption. The corruption scatters when a shopkeeper give very low quality in a lot of quantity.

More than 70% of indias population lives in villages, who have to struggle daily for their basic needs or we may say a two time meal. These people are not aware about the quality factor because they are still in the nutshell of just living from hand to mouth. Quality factor is to be considered only by the people whose pockets can afford to pay for that quality. Because as we know quality and cost are directly related. Rise in one results a rise in other. But however the rural people have value for money. They want the quality products to be available at reasonable and affordable prices. For eg: Sunsilk sachet available in rural areas at two rupees, parle G, ponds small can. Indians are also very

When we talk about India we are talking about a whole country not a single class or society or state. The major problem in India is its humongous population. Some are earning more than enough and some are not able to fulfil their basic needs. Large population gives rise to poverty. Its not about quality consciousness its about are you able to buy a quality product or not. Many people not only in India but in other countries also are only able to fulfil their basic needs, like "HAND TO MOUTH" or even some of them are even not able to fulfil their basic needs. Of course as the quality of a product increases its cost also increases; their is a direct relation between cost and quality. People who are able to buy luxury and branded products they can of course buy and they would prefer to buy quality products for the sake of their status but those who are unable to buy. I have a question even if they wanted to "HOW CAN THEY?". Its not about Indians are less quality conscious its all about are you able to buy or not.

The imported goods which may better better quality are costly and beyond the purchasing power of a middle-class man. Well for the products he can purchase, he would definitely go for a better quality products which is possible because of the stiff competition b/w the brands to increase the consumer base by offering better quality and optimum prized goods. The awareness campaigns launched also enables to check the commodity for its quality and quantity before buying it.

I think we indians are less quality concious, becuase our politicans have made our country worse when compared to all countries, they can increase or decrease the market prices according to their own, our goverment doesn't fix the prices, for example take a farmer who was supplying some 1000 kg of rice to goverment, have get only some 50 percentage to his hands, remaining 50 percentage of the money will eat by politicians, then how they think of quality, and he himself will have no chance to eat their own rice and he will go for 1 rupee rice. So quality doesn't matter in our company.

In India quantity matters most but not quality. If we take our population into consideration its not possible even for Government to provide quality. Not every person can buy good quality products and its not that all are ignoring quality. There should be proper standards to be set for quality for everything. In India the people buying the products are of two categories one the upper class and other the middle class along with the lower class. The people which are of upper class prefer better quality rather than the price they are ready to pay more but the quality should be good whereas the middle class and lower class are less quality conscious as they want the product to be cheaper they can compromise with the quality. Yes Indians are less quality conscious when its comes to money. As in people with heavy pocket will go for high quality product. But that with less money in there pocket will have to make up there mind in buying low quality product. They give preference to quantity over quality.

Quality and Cost are two factors which are inversely related. Thus one has to pay more to acquire a good quality product and vice-versa. Having said the relationship between quality and cost let us view this from India's perspective. India being a thickly populated country where 41. 6% of the total population are below the International poverty line. Thus they certainly would not look at quality as a priority while buying any product. The majority of the Indian crowd are just struggling to fulfil their basic needs wherein there is no thought given about quality. This is one strong reason for Chinese goods to occupy the market share in India. Its that portion of the population who fall under upper middle class and affluent class consider quality as a criteria for purchase. Thus if we assess the current trend & majority of the population in India we will have to agree to the bitter truth that Indians are not quality conscious.

Having said so, the vision of every Indian should be to work towards constructing a society where every Indian realises the importance of quality and is in a financial capability of demanding for the same.

India with its humongous population is doing exceptionally well in various aspect but when it comes down quality its not that we Indians are not concerned about it but its that all of us are not financially capable of opting for a high quality product every-time. As already stated by giving various examples previously that how a man who earns just enough to feed his family, doesn't care about the quality as far as his family's needs are fulfilled. why do you think the Chinese manufactured items top the sale in India? it because most of our population lives below poverty lines and others are what we call lower and upper middle class families, and with day to day advancement the need for basic gadgets and goods are increasing which make people opt for low end products. But there are group of people who are very quality conscious too. these includes the college crowd : the peer pressure and to maintain status symbol and then there are highly paid officials , businessman and others(politicians,celebs) for whom money is no bar and last but not the least few who are actually concerned about the quality (and not about show-off). but there is no denial that with increase per capita income and the growing awareness about the importance of using a good quality product, the quality consciousness is increasing too!

I think, this quality is all about mind set of an individual. I came across a situation in Indonesia where currency is much weaker than India, but the vehicles running on the roads were looking like a new one. While in India, you will see lot of cars looking like a second hand ones. And few of them are in the condition to scrap, but still running on the road! It means, people here in Indonesia, are having a mind set to go for good car/vehicle & are concious enough to maintain that. Yes, this mind set is all dependent mostly on the financial status of the person & availability of the quality products. If you an individual has to manage many things in very limited budget, then sometimes, he has to trade off between quality & quantity. Quite often, you may not not quality product after paying a handsome amount.

Quality consciousness of us Indians has been increasing progressively. Also it is helped by increased competition in market for the same product or service. If consider for services then it has increased absolutely whether its Telecom sector or transportation. See my friends improvement doesn't comes suddenly overnight, but it comes by steadily progressing. So if we see relatively quality consciousness and availability is increasing steadily as compared to past years. Although Economic inequality, poverty and purpose always has and will have impact on quality preferences of different category of people. This progressiveness can be seen from the decreased number of cases of adulteration which is as a result of increased stringency of "jago grahak jaago" campaign run by consumer welfare organisation in India helped by increased literacy rate to 74. 04% (overall) and to 82. 02% (youth) this 2011 census. So keeps your fingers cross, I am sure things are going to be better and better day by day steadily. And so do quality consciousness with availability !

Indians are concerned about the quality of the products they are buying.But in India it very difficult to judge a better quality product, there are several reasons for this: 1) Our markets don't have any strong governance regarding piracy,so just going with brand names is not a solution! 2) Production units at different locations of some Indian industries have difference in quality, I experienced it after discovering that a particular brand of grease offers a better quality when you buy a barrel than a 200gm packet! 3) Non-availability of products and bad supply facilities of a particular(though good quality) product forces people to shift to a lower quality brand which is easily available. 4) You can't make-out that a particular product is having a fake ISI mark or a true one(government needs to take

care of this,and we all know about our governments well). 5) High import duties on imported goods and State wise duties sometimes doubles (or even higher) the actual cost of that product and quality in terms of economic efficiency is also equally important.

Hi all, Yes, Indians are less quality conscious, reason is not that we don't know the benefits of quality products but the main reason of avoiding quality is that the price of products increase with increase in the quality. So one with heavy pocket will go for best quality and other with limited money will go for the product that will suffices his needs. Other reason is the population, consider a person having 5 or 6 children and want to buy mangoes (with Rs 100 total in his pocket) for his family and have options Rs 40/kg and Rs 80/kg then he will definitely go for 40/kg because he is not in a condition to think about quality.

Because as we all know that, 70% of our population lives in villages, where their bred and butter depends on the income of their farms, Do you people think that such group of people are really concerned about quality? In today's date when inflation is rising sky high, does quality matter for them? When its really difficult for them to survive in this rising inflation. On the other hand Quality does matter for the people who can survive well in this inflation.

Yes we go to the market to buy tomato and all and before purchasing we ask about quality, but at the same side we bargain to reduce the price, and if we don't success to buy those in less price we take the things which are less expensive and forget about the quality. This point of view is adoptable more or less in every sector.

According to me Quality consciousness depends on person to person. Some people ignore quality in order to save money while others are very quality conscious and they do not take money thing in to consideration .instead the quality of a product. on the other hand people who are hard pressed for money have to naturally compromise on quality. Day by day as more people are getting educated about quality , quality is now being taken into consideration more and more. Now people buy a LG or Samsung TV instead of buying a local brand since they are aware of the positiveness of buying a branded TV.Indians are as quality conscious as other people in the world are.

For example a poor Indian who is really very poor cannot buy Rs.60 or Rs.80 per Kg rice. He will no doubt, go for the much cheaper rs.20 per Kg rice but selling this cheap rice is a business as well and to make profits here, quality is compromised. So we see that Indians don't puposely use low quality goodsbut are forced to do so due to our bad financial condition.

As now India is devloping & people are becoming economicelly strong hence the Indian people are slowly approaching branded product.

Which means high quality products. This is possible onllyy when the people in India are quality consios and brand consious. With globalisation and MNC's opening up in the country one is able to get quality products at reasonable prices. I must say, before, people wer not very quality consious but recently the customers are openin their eyes towards quality and quality has become the major criteria to shop. But we still cannot neglect the fact that 33% of people in. India are below poverty line and such people have no choice but to compromise on quality. As such the government can play a major role by giving benefits and price reductions to such people so that they can live a bette life.

I think consumer is really the king. Reasons behind this thought is the height competitions inn the market. Friends, today there is very high competition between different companies in the market. Each company wants to beat the others. In order to do this they increases the quality of the product, also some companies reduces there price of product, some companies increases the quality of the product as well as decreases the price. For example consider the mobile phone companies:. In the beginning the price mobile phones were so high that common people can't bought it while the quality and facilities of the mobile phones are not so good. And the nokia has established their kingdom. But, now we can see that there are lot of mobil compnies providing good quality mobiles at lower cost. Its an example of how the consumers are the king.

The market is basically conserns in two things. One is what is the consumer need and second is what are they want. According to these two opinions our market grows up. So here consumer plays the vital role whome the entire market depends on there dicission. So our topic is about is the cusumer really the king of an Indian market? Yes, the consumes are really the king of an Indian market also. I accept that our India is not a developed country but it is a developing country. But according to my above view the maarket can't lead whatever it may be either it is a developed country or developed country. It is one of the fact that rich customers can purchage the chip products but the poor customers can't. But the same products are also available at low price. But there is no fault of shellers because they arrange the products price and quality according to the customer's wants and demand. If they want high ranges then it is available for the rich customers and if they want at low price it is also available. But remember one thing that all are happens only for the customer either they are rich or poor. So whatever the changes of range of the products it is only happen for customer. Some friends told that the shellers are cheated the customers for their profit but never forget that the shellers are also purchages the same things from wholeshellers and so on. So the customer wears the invisible tag of the king in real world evenif in India.

This is another smartest way of thinking for Marketing.

Hi friends, I have read a lot of opinion on this topic. Actually it depends on the condition that which type of product the company want to sell. If we observe, a car company always think about the quality of the product. Its a luxuries product so if the customer is not satisfied then he will not buy the product. Hence at that point of time the customer is the king. But if the customer is in need of buying that product like he is in need of buy a soap, according to situation it is his need, hence the company can sell his product with some sort of less quality, either by just cheating the customer by advertisement or by anyhow.

As per my counterview. Consumers are realy not consumers. Consumers bear an invisible tag of being 'KINGS'. They actually are not. In sense its just to attract the consumers & misguide them by a feel that they are valuable to the market. Consumers is just an ATM to debit cash into the sellers accounts. And make profits to the companies. As richers are linged in market. But what about middle class & poor class. Kings never negotiate but customer has to if they see the prices of products higher than the actual one. So, I conclude saying Indian market is seller dominated market. So we are not realistic KINGS.

Consumers ! They play a significant role in the economic system of our nation . If their is no effective demand that emanates from them , the economy would collapse . However , let's get real ! Consumers are the " KING " on paper ! Various laws have been made giving consumers numerous rights but the laws merely stay on paper. They aren't effective in practical life . Any entrepreneur is not carrying out business to fulfill the needs of the society rather society is only a medium in the name of which he can mint profits and earn himself a luxurious living . Think for yourself, how many business man really think of developing consumer friendly products ! At the end of the day, they will compromise with the quality to bring down the per unit cost and increase the profits ! However, exceptions are always there ! No doubt . I would strongly say, Consumers bear an INVISIBLE tag of being "KINGS" ! They actually are not .

I think the clause is correct that "CONSUMER IS THE KING OF MARKET", it is so in foreign markets but certainly thats not the case in India. Here shopkeepers are the KINGS. They cheat the customers by selling cheap things at higher price and customers has to buy those things as they need it. Although customers are not helpless in such cases, they can complain in consumer courts, but then also there is a wastage of money and time. Actually biggest problem in this country is corruption. Shopkeepers store the things in their godowns and as price shoots up they sell the things with high profits. And if we complain the officials, they go to the godowns, fill their pockets and come back without taking any action. Now its time we should take initiatives to make India corruption free and CONSUMER THE KING OF MARKET.

No, I don't think that the consumers are really the king. According to my point of view actually only those consumers are king who have huge amount to spend or you cn sy that who have more time n money to waste. A local consumer cn never be the king. Here is an expl: like if a person purchase a refrigerator. After some days he/she noticed that the refrigerator is not the 1st one it is a second hand machine n also not working properly. Then the person goes to that stor from where he/she purchased it. Guess what! the stor man refuged to take that machine back, and instid of taking back he is blaming the customer. After that the person goes to the company of that machine. Same thing happens with him/her at that place. At last after no option is avilable he/she goes to the consumer court and after all complains and enquiries the store man found guilty. Now the high amount of 20, 000 rs goes into the consumer court a/c and money which the customer paid for the machine is given to that person. FINE. But now can any one tell that what is the value of the time of the customer which he/she had spent on that issue? No1 cn tell it. So this is whats happening in our country. We should know our all rites and should also protest for the wrong things happening with us. Otherwise these bloody profit makers will destroy us by providing us the cheap guality of products.

I think that consumer is considered king of the market after the govt enacted the copra act in 1985, in this act every consumer can file a case against company, if he/she get any defective service. But richer consumer give more respect as we compared to poor consumer, because purchasing consumer is more in hands of richer consumer, so every producer decide the price not by market forces only seen the money in hands of consumer. So its not possible for poor to buy that product. Last but not least we conclude that king of market means that every consumer should given equal respect, but in our country only richer is only the ring of market.

No, I don't think that consumers are treated like a king in India. Various industry has different products but their destiny is same & it is the consumers. Every product must have certain demand to survive in the market. So it's the duty of a businessman to attract consumers by satisfying the needs of his consumers in every possible way. But that does not mean that consumers are treated like a king because behind every service provided to the consumers actual reason is to make profit. If some shops have better staff than others that means the consumers have to pay more in those shop. So it's the consumers who have to pay for everything & if consumer is not satisfied by the product or there is a defect in the same then he has to go through a time consuming lengthy process to get a replacement. So I don't think that consumers are really treated as a king in India.

Consumer is king. This type of policy is deeply rooted in the western and developed economies. In India it is yet to take a stronghold. The MNCs and new entrepreneurs are thinking in the way that the consumer is king but the conventional business and govt. India enterprises are yet to grab this concept. The pre 91 era was really shadowed in the lack of awareness of the customer demands and full of family businesses. This was a period when customer was really neglected but the post liberation India is getting hold of consumer based structured companies. This is reflected in our GDP which is 8. 5. There is clear indication of consumer is king concept in our elections of west Bengal where consumer have overthrown the rule of CPM. The same was the case with Bihar. The exact example of consumer is king is Starbucks and subway, where the type of food to eat is customer based. So in India even if the idea of consumer is king is yet to get hold of it will be the most important aspect for the growth of economy.

Before 1991 - Consumer was not king - Product known by Brand - Bajaj (means Scooter), Fiat and Ambasador (Car), Crown and Sharp (TV).....Hearld use to play black for buying scooter and TV. There was a lottery system and waiting of getting product..... After 1991 - Thanks to Sh Manmohan - Market open and door for MNC opened. This gave knowledge to consumer about quality/ cost. Our Indian firm also needs to improve their product to stay in competition and Bajaj scooter becomes Pulsar, quality product. After 1991, power of consumer started grawing and we are hearing that motor manufacturer are withdrawing car due to observed manufacturing defects...NOW, CONSUMERS MAY NOT BE KING, BUT DEFINATELY FATE OF COMPANIES DEPENDS ON THEM AND COMPANIES HAVE TO TREAT THEM AS KING.

I believe consumer is King in the India market. From mobile phones to cars, the Indian industry caters to needs of every individual. Take Samsung for example, which is the largest electronics company. They have phones ranging from 2000 to 30000 which caters to needs. Tata launched the Nano for the need of a scooter-travelling family to get an affordable car. Ford is famous for its Made for India cars (ikon, fiesta, figo). Gone are the days when the Indian consumers would buy a product just because Rajnikant endorsed it. Education and awareness helps us make an informed decision about the products. There is the internet, the surveys, other people opinions which we take into account before buying our first lcd tv. Hence, I would conclude that all Hail, because consumer is KING !

In My opinion consumer is being king in India. Those days have gone when there was only one type of car, scooter, bike,domestic use items were available in the market. Consumers needs to wait months together to full fill their demand.But now Supply and demand theory works with quality and customer satisfaction. There is level of classes as per their financial strength. India is big consumer market and big business houses believe in long term business strategy and focused on satisfaction of utility and pay of price both. Short term vision pullout them soon from market. So Companies believe in Golden hen story and make profit from consumer gradually but not with greedy.

Consumer can make a company a star within the few months or it can spoil its existence like the set of playing cards. If the product of a company is being liked by the consumers then only they will be willing to spend there hard earned money on that. It also depends upon the substitutes available to the customers in the market. Even then customers liking and disliking depends upon the quality of goods and services they are getting by the company among the so many options available in the market. So consumer is the king but the king can be made a loyal customer by the performance and the right frequency of availability.

Indian consumer is the king explicitly, that because in India with such a large population there are various section of our society namely, lower , middle and upper class and companies keeping this in mind manufactures products accordingly. For ex. If you walk into a mobile store, you will be able to see handsets varying from Rs.1200 to fortune costing rs.45,000, thats because even the companies know that demands and affordability of people varies, so they provide you with goods that can suit varied range of customers. why do you think companies spend huge amounts in market research, surveys and feedbacks etc.?? Its to ensure that whatever service or good they release in market receives a favorable response from the target groups or consumers in that case.i can explain by giving you the example of Pizza hut/McD/KFC et al all of them being foreign fast food chain restaurant, still provides option likes paneer tika burger, paneer el rancho pizza , desi chicken just to name a few although there authentic signature dishes are quite different. they do so to satisfy the Indian consumer and their taste. But on the other hand implicitly, considering consumer the real king isn't that true, because at the end of the day its the profit that counts in business. So even though consumers needs are taken care of while producing goods, but the actual motive is to make profits and keep the good will of the industry alive.

Whatever we see into the advertisements of these products, do these product functions the same what we see in this adds? NO. Many of the times we (consumer) get cheated in the same way.

If the consumer wants to know want the ingredients used in it he will be not known by the company. The company says if you want further details then contact the address of email. Suppose if the consumer is not educated or even though he is educated he does not know how to use the internet how he will know about that product. Now are the companies really making the consumers to know about the product. They are not making any awareness of that product to the consumers of any type. Simply they are producing and the persons who will know about that product completely are buying. So still our Indian market has to develop some new technologies to make aware people about the products in any way.

I am Pawan ..after freedom in 1947 every one is totaly free for their right which have been made in time of construction of constitution.As per my knowledge Varios act related to consumer and company like Company act 1956 and consumer Act which always give power to customer. And all company and retailer accept that customer is god for them because compitition in consumable or various goods is present from ancient times so if customer would not come to retailer then what they will eat . Now a days One forum has been establish for only customer in hindi we can say "UPBHOKTA FORUM" with suitble tag line "JAGO GRAHAK JAGO". so we can say customer is a king

In my way consumer is definitely the king ...because without consumer our products will not rated at all...complete Indian products depends on the consumer..but now a days products rates are increasing day by day in which a common man cannot afford.....they are just not daring to live luxury life because of the rates ..he is not in the position to satisfy the basic common needs like food,clothing etc... Products now a days are decreasing the confidence levels of the consumers..they r not satisfying th kings confidence...so many no of products are coming and going ..because of their poor quality...so king (consumers) is not allowing the quality less product... finally...i can say that companies who are going to implement new products must have to kings minds......so that they will succeed.

I will stress on the statement "Consumer is not a King".. -As consumer has to consume whatever companies are producing, of course he can select the best option among the different substitutes available and categories ,but eventually he has to consume whatever companies are producing.. -Consumer follows the brands and latest trends which attract him, and these trendy products are manufactured by companies ,so this proves that consumers are "followers". -finally , I would like to add something to what Nirav mentioned by presenting a story that if the consumer buys a product and does not gets the quality as he expected , then he has no power of king that can help him out..

I am not agree with this statement because king is the person who has the right to rule the over the system, he would also have the power for ruling but consumers have no any power like this. They buy whatever a company produces, just by giving some extra advantages and attractive ads consumers attract and buy the products. Even sometimes if there is no need for that then also they will buy. But it is also true that multinational companies are achieving their gaols only by this consumers so we can say that they are essential.

Hello friends! according to me consumers are king as he decides that whether the product deserves to reside on the shelfs of a store or need modifications. So, in case the product is rejected by the consumers then no power in the universe can sell the product. This proves that consumers have the right to decide the destiny of the product. So for product manufacturer n other parties whose money are on stake, consumers should be treated as king even in real they really not are.

King is the person who decides his own rules but in India price of products are decided by the sellers not by consumers and on the other side in developed country the price is decided by consumer not by the sellers and due to this consumers are king over there but in our country consumers are still not king we hope in future they would be king.

I don't believe costumer is king I would like to share you something what I've read few days ago in local newspaper. A person has purchased a leaf of tablet and he found a stapled tablet in it. Ha has blame to medical store but the owner said he has nothing to do with it It's a company fault. Now that person has gone to that pharmaceutical company but in place of apologize for that mistake they blame that consumer that he has done it. So now ultimately person has gone to consumer court where the company proved wrong and company has to pay 20,000 as fine that will go to "Consumer welfare" and some 2000 to that person for his expanse it this circumstances... So person has spent his time on it and what he has gain?? Nothing. So I think he should be received some motivation far that. Now in this case possibly if person has lost the case then he may not have received his money that he has spent for this circumstances, which is equally possible. So I sincerely believe that system need some changes

Yes consumer demand do play an important role. A brand may be much improved in quality as well as it may have quite an efficient way to attract people still if consumers can't go for it due to many a reasons starting from fascination of some special product to price factor of the product then that brand has certainly no value. Hence consumer ultimately is the king of his own choice so in that respect consumer can definitely be considered as the king.

Consumer is king in India
By Siddharth Srivastava NEW DELHI - In a free market, the consumer is king. If one wishes to witness a demonstration of such a phenomenon, one could step into India to watch it as it happens. For the residents here, it is perhaps the first real flush of the benefits of choice flowing out of the economic reforms process initiated over a decade back by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who was then finance minister. Nobody's complaining, although as always, every silver lining has its dark cloud. Reading the daily newspapers makes for a good beginning. In a huge advertising splash, Air Deccan, a private Indian carrier, is selling tickets for the Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Bangalore routes at less than US$15; the usual price for the former route is $100 and the latter $160. The offer comes with a caveat - the tickets have to be purchased 90 days in advance over the Internet, with a heavy penalty for cancellation, but the fact of the matter is that such rates are within the realms of the possible. The current rates are the culmination of a price war that has been raging in the civil-aviation sector among private players Sahara and Jet Airways and government-owned Indian Airlines. The airlines earlier targeted first-class rail travelers by pegging prices of air travel at the same level; former United Airlines boss Rono Dutta took over Sahara a few months back and undercut even more by pegging air fares at the AC-two tier level (second class). At current Air Deccan rates, a cab to the airport from most locations in New Delhi could cost more than the air travel. In any case, as things stand the majority of first class travelers are railway officers commuting free; a similar situation is developing at the two-tier level; now the second-class travelers are in for a liftoff. Just a few years earlier there were no private airlines to speak of and sluggish Indian Airlines commanded the highest price at the lowest possible level of service. Aviation is just one of the many sectors consumers are benefiting from - electronic goods, computers, mobile phones, insurance, hospitality, travel, banking, automobiles, garments, credit cards, telecom … the list goes on. As a matter of fact, the situation is confusing in that it is difficult to time a purchase or wait for the best offer, or decide whether one is buying for the attached benefits. An example is LG Electronics, the Korean electronics company that has been leading the frills march this summer. Upon the purchase of an air-conditioner valued at less than $400, LG offered a holiday package worth $100 along with food and beverage discounts to the best destinations in India and Southeast Asia by tying up with a reputable hotel chain, gift vouchers valued at $100, an electric kettle/flask/juicer priced at $20 and entrance into a lucky draw. LG air-conditioner sales have rocketed this summer though power supply remains a major issue in this country. Holiday packages are the flavor of the season, with Bharti Touchtel, the cellular and broadband operator, ABN Amro bank and Nokia, offering similar offers through tie-ups with hotel chains as well as hefty discounts in food and beverages. The customer is laughing all the way to the hotels and the bank. There are reports of hordes of youngsters opening and then closing Citibank accounts to avail themselves of Shoppers Stop (a garment retailer) vouchers, a pearl pendant, a Timex watch and medical and life insurance. Mobile and land-line telephone rates have crashed by 5075% over the past couple of years since the entry of private players Reliance and Bhart, putting pressure on the public-sector MTNL and BSNL; India's cellular base has grown by more than 150% over the past year, with China's largest handset manufacturer Bird becoming the latest entrant into the fertile market. In the heyday of government control over telecom, a landline connection could take years of political and bureaucratic lobbying for an installation. Indeed, now it is competition all the way. Benetton has been running a 50% sale through the summer to match competitors such as Tommy Hilfiger, which is now also selling at half-price, with several retailers located at the popular malls in Gurgaon, the outsourcing suburb of Delhi. Auto manufacturers offer free car insurance, loyalty bonuses, gold coins, gift vouchers and car accessories, while Hyundai, Maruti, General Motors and Ford clash. As with a telephone, buying a car too was a matter of pulling many strings a while ago when the government was big brother to all. Acer is leading the market in crashing laptop prices for the first time to under $750 and multimedia desktops to below $400, with web cameras, compact discs (CDs), carry bags, computer table and chair being thrown in as regular add-ons. Compaq-Hewlett Packard, IBM, Toshiba, Zenith and HCL are trying to do the same. Newspaper or magazine subscriptions come free with Reebok shoes, T-shirts and even a television from the India Today Group. One cannot decide whether one is subscribing for the magazine or the perk of acquiring a pair of Reeboks. New insurance players such as Tata-AIG, Aviva and Max New Life offer customized and flexible products that have added a new churn to government-owned Life Insurance Corp, long used to having a monopoly. Home loans are down to 7%, the lowest ever with several private banks such as HDFC, HSBC and ICICI more than eager to dole out the funds; while property rates continue to be the same or fall in the wake of frenetic construction of high rises across the country. It only gets better on the Internet, with portals such as rediff.com and indiatimes.com as well as auction sites such as Bazee-ebay offering even further discounts on virtual purchases. The entire gamut of products, from music CDs to Arrow shirts to Nokia phones to airline tickets can be bought cheaper, with discounts ranging from 10-50%. One could go on, but the crux of the matter is, for all those who have the money to buy, it has never been better, and it is going to get even healthier as the forces of competition clash further. However, lest we get carried away, words of caution too. The Global Trust Bank recently crashed because of an accumulation of non-performing assets due to overreaching on the interest rates offered to depositors. India's inflation

rate is on the way up because of an increase in the price of agriculture products in the wake of supply chains snapping due to floods. A majority of the Indian population still subsists by tilling land. A few years back the Delhi government was voted out of power because of the rising prices of onions. India has a new prime minister as the previous incumbent was accused of ignoring the lot of the large pool left out of the benefits of economic reforms. The aim should be to rope in everybody to the discount party that only one section of the Indian population currently enjoys.

Definitely advertisements are necessary to promote the products because many people would not be knowing about all the products in the market. When they see it through advertisements it would be helpful to them and advertisements made through the actors are attracting many people to buy the product. There are many ads which got popularised by the advertisements for example "NIRMA" and "ZOO ZOO" Ads. The song of nirma ad is very popular and also the zoo zoo ad which attracted many people by their action and comedy.

Spending cost for advertisement and not transferring the cost to others will be helpful for all classes of the economy.

So in that case different advertisement are available through different sources providing them information about the product. Helping people to choose best from available options and according to their needs they can pick up the one. They are not forced to change their priority. Instead it will make them more confident to be smart enough to choose their goods for the next time.

If we release a new product in to the market with out giving advertisement no one knows what is that product? Giving over advertisement is waste of time and waste of resources.

So to stand in a good position into the market they do advertisement. But now a days very high technology has been came so the company should change the way of advertisement. Instead of using resources they can use inter net for their product's advertisement.

With lack of advertising there will be no more information shared with people. But the digital advertising is the most useful thing in now days because world has now been globalized and in that sense the advertising through internet or other medias very useful for every organization. The waste of time in now days advertising through boards hanging over road. This is not fair. Just imagine it and please adopt it because every one wants to know about something but not just through looking on the road side. Because situation has been changed now. No one has nothing much time.

Well, according to me advertising is not completely a waste of resources as it may lead to higher revenues for the advertiser in the form of higher sales but, on looking at it from a consumer's point of view I find advertising to be waste of resources because it lures me to go in for a product that I do not require. Ultimately leading to wastage of my money and my resources for a product that does not meet my requirements.

I think Advertising is not a waste of resources because through advertisements only the people can know what are the products available in market. But the government should take proper decisions. The government should provide star rating on the goods. So the people can understand easily by the star rating.

I think, advertising is not the wastage of money because people especially youths blindly believe on what is show in advertisements.This make the brand or the product popular and hence increase its sale.Large scale of sale leads to higher profits for the company. But we should not forget that now a days almost all advertisements doesn't depict the reality of the product.Companies design these adds in such a mannner that it easily mismarise anyone.In this case co. are not obeying their social ethics. Thus, according to me adverisements are good till when it depict truth but otherwise todays consumers are smart enough to differentiate between the good $ the best.We know that Every business organisation want long term profit but in case of false advertisements it is just a wastage of money.

I don't agree with the statement fully but yes at some extension it is right. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT ADVERTISEMENT THE FIRST PRIORITY WOULD BE PROMOTION OF A PRODUCT WHICH CAUSE AWARENESS IN MARKET, SO IT IS HAVING POSITIVE EFFECT. BUT IS THIS RIGHT TO PROMOTE A PRODUCT FROM THE RENOWNED PERSONALITY I. E "actors, prominent sports person etc"? Just to gain attention of customer so they will become like their favourite star so on. What is the intention behind giving such expensive advertise of "STARS"? Is it giving the right awareness to the customer or they are creating bruit among the innocent customer? If advertisement is for promotion then it is right but when it cause rumour then I would termed it as a waste of resources.

Advertising is not a waste of resources unless it is spend in a certain limit. If a company has that much capital to spend on promoting their product they should obviously use that because ultimately it is a long term investment, as people get to know about your product and your products unique features with the help of advertisement. There is a

cut throat competition among various companies where you can fight over that by Advertising and reach out to maximum number of people. It is not always necessary that you should spend enormously if your service and product is good or a little better than others and also is constantly improving, the customers would turn loyal to you. And then no need for further expense on advertisement. Once build your rapport with the consumers and then just inform them about the extensions and improvemnts by spending less on advertisemnet because once your product is known make your best efforts to make it the best. Whih demands no advertisement.

Advertising is not waste of money, it has a positive role to play in modern society, helping us choose between competing goods. Many adverts are drawing our attention to products with new features, for example more powerful computers, telephones which are also cameras and music players, or foods with added vitamins. Other adverts try to compete on price, helping us seek out the cheapest or best value products. In most cases advertising does not make us go shopping - we would be planning to buy food, clothes, gifts and entertainment anyway. What advertising does is to help us make better decisions about how to spend our money, by giving us more information about the choices available.

So if the company who is going to launch the new product or a different variety of the existing products in the market how will we come to know about its features the speciality the options and choices of the particular product.

As a reply to the above topic I would say it depends on some factors. Advertisement at times is a waste of money if you really dont know what you are doing. Smart advertising definitely is not a waste of money . Ad companies invest a lot in getting a film star to do a particular Ad at times it proves good and many a times it back fires . Instead I would say the concept of your Ad if its good and innovative it will never backfire. Hence it purely depends on the quality (how well it conveys the message) and not on the quantity(Too much money spent).

Advertising is nothing but garnishing of a product. Which is the most important thing. What ever may be the true value of the product it possess that value only by effective marketing. Engineers work hard to portray a product but the whole credit is given to a man who sells or markets it. Quality with quantity is what runs advertisements. Not only that it gives immense opportunities to consumers to know about different products. For a normal man it looks quite stupid but when a man behavior matters advertising works a lot. Some can't resist themselves after watching the attracting and deceiving commercials. That is true secret of advertisements. Human can't control his emotions just as we go to a super market we buy more than what we think of buying. That is the reason why advertisement is great importance.

Advertising is meant for creating awareness but when brand endorosements are done, the company pays a huge amount to the celebreties.

There are products in the market like amway, eureka forbes, oriflame, ceasefire who doesnot spend much in advertising but is a great player in the

Advertising gets the consumers close to the products. People are aware of the pros and cons of a product. They can make their own decisions of what’s good for them. Creates job opportunities for many people. Advertising is a mean of promoting goods. Since more people become aware, there is more revenue. Advertising on TV is a big relief from the daily tele soaps that have nothing but drama. Advertising plays an important role in passing information such as AIDS, contraception etc. people are aware of health disorders and how to overcome them.

Spending so much on advertising is not called for.

    

Instead of this, money can be spent on other issue like poverty etc. Most of the celebrities that are endorsed don’t even use the product. It is simply to mislead the consumer. Most of the children products like games; chocolates are simply to lure children even though the product may not be healthy. By spending a lot of money, the brand producers are not even bothered whether or not their product is being sold or not. Most of the times, the advertisements are not even ethical. To promote their product, the advertisement can go against any other product of some other brand.

Most of the times advertisements spend so much of money on flashy videos, images, animation etc without having the need to help consumers realize how economical can the product be. Advertising, to summarize is acceptable. Although, it does not make sense to spend a lot of time and money by endorsing big celebrities, end of the day, what matters is the product not the ambassador. People, due to curiosity may even try and use the product, however, not for a long time. As long as the consumers are aware of the “facts”, advertising is fine. <<Previous Next>>

We all know that the current scenario is teaching us to adopt more and more cultural, technological living style. To get more exposure. And basically we follow the western countries vigorously. But at a same point of view if we go for globalization then why not are we thinking about our culture, tradition and ethical life style, that should be also in exploitation to the all World. Because globalization is not only for grabbing all better ideas from other but also the distribution of yourself, what you are and from where you r? so being the representative from India you have to be concern about your own culture and origin.

It was globalization that started the begining of new india...that brought india into international arena.But what nationalism has done to india that can't be done by globalization.Nationalism had given us freedom from british empire and this fact should never be ignored so in my point of view nationalism should never be compromised with increasing globalization

Hello everyone, Globalization vs Nationalism is interested topic for discussion; Globalisation, as per my concern its means to spread our talents n adoption for new technologies from all other advanced countries but still we give equal value to nationalism not only for this reason that we are Indian but if all of you noticed we adopt western cultures especially their standard n way of living n other countries are feeling good to adopt our Indian culture like tradition, norms, value n belief. I know India is underdeveloped country n its very important to us to be connected with rest of the world for the purpose of business, finance, communication, cultural exchanges, Tourism etc n all these things are possible only because of globalization but still feeling of nationalism provokes me to welcome and support globalisation though making sure that self identity of our nation I. E culture, tradition, ideology, norms and ethics are not changed, we must welcome new ideas n modern technologies

but for me both are equally important and valuable for today mantra of life.

Globalization and Nationalism both are important. But priority should be given to Nationalism. We have to use our talent for country first. Because until and unless We do special in business or any field, How can we represent our self in global market. ? Globalization in INDIRECT way is to represent, to develope respective country. (by making use of other countries resources and talents). Yes of course they are giving us new job opportunities, allowing us to show talent. , but make a habit of discovering new technologies which will help us to row Indian Market in global field also.

Globalisation is a universal phenomena and economies have to open up to take advantage of the knowledge and technical resources being created every day. Nationalism need not be compromised for globalisation. Our sentiments for our country and respect for our culture and practices can be maintained. Besides "culture" itself is an ever changing entity and it is only if we are unsure of our identity that we need to worry about the negative effects of globalisation. The Indian sense of nationality is much too strong for multinational companies to ignore the context in which they work. That is to say that eating pizzas or burgers do not make a less committed Indian. As for safeguarding our economic interests are concerned, there are pros and cons to the argument. While IT creates jobs, its the MNC's which earn profit. Similiarly, there are fewer jobs in the US because they are outsourced to the developing world due t o the availability of cheap manpower. So if countries start imposing embargos on each other to protect their national interests, it will be to their own detriment. P. S- Quite a few people have used the words nationalism and nationalisation interchangably. I believe the latter means a process by which the state or country takes over an organization and makes it public owned eg. Like in the nationalisation of banks.

The globalization is unavoidable as the country develops and the people become well educated and it leads to the development of the country no doubt but what is seen is as the people become educated they conveniently forget nationalization they forget their duties a as citizen towards the country which has made them capable of what they are today they go abroad and work for the betterment of other countries which is quite wrong on their part. I think that globalization along with nationalization is important. Every educated citizen must not fail to do his part for the betterment of his own country if that happens the globalization is great welcome.

Nationalism and globalisation having strong relationship because without the feelings of nationalism, globalization cannot felicitate any nation. On the other hand only nationalism cannot develop any nation. So, this is the time where we need to understand the actual meaning and worth of these two terminologies, and try to adopt them according to our values, norms and believes.

As far as globalization vs nationalization is concerned, globalization is required for a country keeping the values of national interests to reach in the global world and takes advantages from others to improve its position in global market. Like Swami Vivekananda has said that "The World is my country". He never compromised with the interests with the interests of India. People can evolve only if globalization with nationalization becomes the Mantra of the Day. Now we can say that globalization with nationalism is necessary. If globalization is not there we will just remain in our country all, to spread our talents in terms of any things like Business or anything else. But globalization is necessary up to some extent, it should not be at the cost of sacrificing our cultures and languages.

There are always 2 sides of a coin,being an indian if i have a feeling of nationalism,i would surely welcome globalisation as it is helping us to grow stronger on a global market of world,being an most prefered outsourcing centre and alsa now inching towards becoming a commanding power in I.T. field,which is a boon for us,as job opportunities are enormous now. But if i would have been a native of a developed country like u.s. or u.k. then opinion will differ,as nationalism in them will not allow globalisation to cut-off the jobs of thier fellow men,which is actually happening as MNC's over there are outsourcing their business to developing countries like india and indonesia,thereby raising the unemployment cases there. Even incresed number of immigrants has done the same thing. But if i see the bigger picture then gllobalization has given all the countries a chance to share their knowledge and even technologies and grow globally,that is the most positive point of globalisation for everyone. So for me feeling of nationalism provokes me to welcome and support globalisation though making sure that self indentity of our nation i.e culture,tradition,ideology and ethics are not changed,yaa any modification leading to improvement is always welcome.........!!

Hi everyone, I am very hpy to share my ideas with you. Globalization is very important today for devoloping the country. The main drawback for the devoloping is nobody can not interest for putting the investment. Every one fear about tax and they save the money in some other countries. So the people can't ask anyone and government also did not gather their details and not cooperating them for withdrawal that amount. But the people have good nationalism and they are ready for giving there lives for the country. So globalization is very important for our country.

Privatization completly will not reduce the corruption rather it would lead over the corruption.Because in greedy of money the owner of any organisation will perform his duty on their own way.He dont think about any rules and regulations.Every person working in the orgation will depend on the owner and he will be able to remove any worker without any difficulty in anytime.Thus this is a major drawback of privatization of any company that there is no any security of job in private sector.But on the other hand there is a security of job in government job.Government pay their worker even after they are not able to do their work.Demerits in government job are that the worker did not perform their duty.So a strict rules should be applied for these things and this can be happens only it is taken under private sector.So it is better to handle any orgationation by both private and goernment for their well performance and reduction of corruption.

Privatization is certain sectors is inevitable as government agencies are not too efficient and plagued by various

scam and scandals. But privatizing all and every sector can backfire for our economy as well as the human development index. After all the bottomline of all companies is maximizing PROFIT. Dominance of a company in a sector can result in its wielding a lot of power which can result in no regulation of prices of commodities and services as well as compromise on quality and quantity. In government run institutions corruption is at various levels but in private companies corruption would be at the highest level. In my opinion there isn't any difference. Thus privatization would result in a small section of society using the society as a medium to mint money rather than fulfilling its needs.

Indeed privatization will reduce corruption to certain extent again if and only if the regualtory bodies controlling it are orthodox. We make thousands of rules but what is the use if it is not followed. It all depends on the mentality of people which doesnt only come through education but through good practice and culture along with strict laws. For eg:"two people are walking on road, eating bananas and peeling out its skin and throwing on the way, despite of taking a look on the Dustbin borad just lying nearby. After doing this they say hey this is not America so don't bother just relax". What does that mean people are taking things granted because they are not dealt with strict laws. If the same happens in America, those two will be heavily penalized by traffic police in form of fine or imprisonment. "If the crowd is enough conscious and literate this scenerio won't ocur at all. Use the dustbin when it has ben provided to you. So, both people (first) as well as goverment (second) has to change in their way else we should stay hopeless that's it. This just a small example.

Retirement benefits. 3. Other perquisites. 4. Job security. Would not be available in privatization. But yes JOB SECURITY is the main reason which bounds government worker to do their with loyality.

According to me, privatization is not so important. Because For example, Private companies as well as government companies gives the security but in some private companies if the employees are working, then they get salary until they are working in that firm. One thing is that they get high salary compare to government jobs and they are promote to a best position. But as we compare to government jobs then there we get pensions which we get after we are retired. And that is the main advantage where we feel secure when we are in our old age. So according to me I don't think that it is important that we should have only privatization but only is the thing that people should satisfied and they should get right jobs according to their capabilities.

Yes, according to me privatisation will lead to less corruption because if a sector is get privatised then it will compete with other sectors and try to be better. And if a person employed in private sector were caught in any offence will be immediately dismissed, so a employee have fear of that and this curb him to do offence. But on the other side in a government sector if a employee were caught in any offense then it take so many time to dismiss him. And a employee in pvt. Sector try to improve thier efficiency for getting promotion in thier field.

Yes of course privatisation is needed to curb the corruption because the private companies believe in performance more than anything. The PSU's really lack in performance because a lot of people (state, union authorities n finally the politicians) can interfere with the working and these people are not at all worried about performance, on the other hand private companies are controlled by a handful of highly skilled people which will never let down the company name at any cost so privatisation is unavoidable. Also complete privatisation is not a solution because it will again form a parallel government with no one to watch them and again all the corruption and non performance will be induced in them.

If it is so, goverment sector is more challengening area that to be auditted. And first and foremost thing is that. People work in government sector and same in private sector if they are corrupted they will find their way and to stop this the flexibility and responsibilties in weaker area need rigidity in governing laws. The same sort of procedure and responsibilty in private firm may beimplemented in government sector. It all all needs proper documentation, responsibility list and monitering cell.

To say that privatization will curb corruption is a myth. Because there has to be some authority, like to issue licences and permits. This power can not be handed over to private companies as this can be misused for their own advantage. So complete privatization is not possible. For example, in 2G scam, telecom ministry was the licencing authority. Along with our former telecom minister A raja who is a government authority, there are many private companies executives who has been charged. Corruption is 2 way process. One person gives bribe and other one takes it. So problem is that private and government people create a web of nexuses. So corruption cant be checked by privatization.

In my opinion privatisation is not the tool to curb the corruption. It is the state of mind of people at such position who can curb the corruption. If it comes about removing corruption by privatision, it is not possible because every private organisation works on concept of making money and maximum profitisation. They don't mind the MONEY is coming in which way either by bribe or by any other illegal way. Moreover a person working with private organisation may also be envolved with corruption because if MONEY or any other facility will come as BRIBE to any one then, it is only the loyality and honesty of that person whether he should accept it or not,there it doesn't matter whether the person is Private employee or Govt. employee.........

I totally agree with the statement. There are some areas which desperately need private sector intervention. Commonwealth games, 2G spectrum scam, Adarsh society scam etc reveal the truth that how political leaders are misusing their position and power. If private sector enters in these areas, corruption can be reduced to a great extent. Because unlike the political leaders private companies can not take bribe as it will affect their reputation and they will do everything to keep their image clean.

But in privet sector there is more dicipline and every worker give their 100%. Cruption originates in human mind due greed and thats kind of thiking is not possible in private sector.

Yes privatization will reduce the corruption. Why because 1. 2. 3. 4. There is no chance to the common man to exchange hands in this sector. Deaf neatly they have rules and regulations from subordinate to superiors. No hands of Politicians, Government and common man.

In my point of view, Privatization is the thing that creates job opportunities, but not for all sectors, mainly the service sector has to concentrate more so that the privatization is not maintained, like eduction sector, while the education sector will partly privatized to get more quality of education.

I won't think privatization would lead to less corruption because main motive of many private institution is on profit maximization so due to this, instead of checking corruption,it would lead many private entrepreneur to indulge in many malpractices including corruption. No doubt private intervention would break the barrier of 'low standard of living' by generating more employment opportunity but still many of the activity should be cater by the non profit making institution i.e government ..

We need to strike a balance between Private Public relationship to ensure smooth functinoning of our economy. The goverment should keep vigil on the functioning of the private firms and check any misappropriation of funds and money-laundering activities.

Privatisation certainly leads to higher living standards by enhancing competition in market, but there can be some untoward fallouts as well. The only expedient being the profit motive can lead to consumer exploitation.

privatization will not wholly curb the corrupton but it will definitely lead to less corruption.It inhibits the main factors which causes corruption that is Human greed ,poor economic status of the country,lack of awareness towards the moral duty. first, Corruption is act done by an employee for the benefit of his own.And this benefit is the consequence of the integral human behavior called "greed".People in power in spite of having a very good salary they have the venal attitude of fulfilling pockets of their owns. The penurious condition of the country's economy has caused the persons with very less salary to be bribed & scams to maintain proper family standards. the last but important is the lack of virtues which used to be the very important part of Indians.We are not aware towards the moral duties which we must follow.

Privatization will increase the control of management over the employees so that they cant get bribes. If certain sectors are privatized there will be a clash between the private companies in order to provide in a better way. The employees will also work honestly in order to get promotions and other things. If employees were caught in private companies for some offences they will be immediately dismissed where as in government sector it takes years to dismiss them. This increases.

rivatization will lead to less corruption.
Points to be known:-



Privatization is the incidence or process of transferring ownership of a business, enterprise, agency or public service from the public sector to the private sector. In Favor:-

        

Employees of private companies are given high salaries, so they are much more motivated to work, and less interest on corruption. Private companies take immediate action on those who take bribe. This creates fear in employees to take bribe. If we take private airports, they take more care to keep them clean and to provide more facilities. Private companies have competitive spirit. So, they offer more features to public. Through privatization, our country's GDP increases from the taxes.

In Against:There is no guarantee that privatization leads to less corruption, because there are some companies in the news which did scam. The cost of products increases by privatization.

If we take private petrol bunks, even though they keep petrol bunks clean, they charge high than the bunks under government control. Our rights of demanding decreases by privatization. Conclusion:Corruption does not depend on whether it's private or government, it completely depends on individual's attitude. But by privatization, we can reduce corruption up to some extent.

Of course Indian villages are our strength. India is known for it's culture and it's agriculture. 60% of total economy of India depends on agriculture. One thing more I would like to add as mathematics is backbone of education in the same way agriculture is the backbone of survival. Until and unless we enhance our capability to enhance agricultural growth. we can't expect our self to be developed. But now a days due to climate changing rapidly , unequally distributed rain fall the agriculture has gone downwards. we should not depend only on government but we can also add up our valuable efforts by avoiding unnecessarily consumption of energy , water and transport for the welfare of the environment. It would be better if each of us can plant even a single tree every year.

The villages should be provided suitable facilities as such in cities like transport facilites and the agriculture should be progressed well and the government should help to do this.

We are raised day by day. But what thing is behind this, what is the foundation of this. Foundation is our villages. Every thing is belong to village in our country. You can take any example of high-profile personality of any department of our country who belongs to village like dhiru bhai ambani, amitab bachan, ms dhoni, Mahatma Gandhi, Lal bahadur shastri, lots of great people are belong

to villages. The environment of villages are good. There is no pollution. Citizen also come to village for taking rest, finding peace. And most important thing is that villages provide us food, eatable things and many resources of energy which is use in industries. We are known in this world as "Krishi Pradan desh". Because our environment and land is good for agriculture. Without food we are nothing and we cant do anything. So in the last I want to say that Villages are our basics. And if basics of any thing are strong then we can do any thing. So Villages are our strength.

But are we not depend upon agriculture if we totally depend upon the world of industrialisation then my dear friends we will get the latest technology absolutely but not the food to eat. If the government look after the progress of villages and villagers especially in the area like food, clothing, education, employment. Then obviously they will progress and overcome from there demerits. Then the villagers don't have to go to cities for there income.

If you look around you will find even in the cities many student who come small villages are give tough competition to student in the cities the reason is that there are valuable diamonds in the villages but they lack knowledge and support so Government need to take step to start good schools in villages for such talented students and no doubt that government has taken many steps that is the reason why you will find may schools and high schools even in the small villages.

Hi all, This is very good topic for discussion. Villages our strength or our weaknesses. I think both are strengths & weaknesses are considered. As strengths we can say that in villages there are most of the lands are used for agriculture. Above 80% of people occupation is agriculture. Clear climate is another strength of Indian villages. There is no pollution in the villages because there are no industries & no companies to destroy fresh climate. More avail of land government has decided to build SEZ (special economic zone) in area for industries to generate employment & reduce government duties. Weakness as we can say there is lack of development in Indian villages. E. G- less private banks occupied in villages. Another weakness we can say that lack of education facilities. In villages there are no growth for higher education like MBA. How can people develop their growth in education? it causes less confidence in people of Indian villages. So there is need for government schemes for higher education. So, Indian villages are so important as discussed before "Indian villages are backbone of our India. " & their should be a support of government for growth of villages like roads, transport, Higher education facilities etc.

The resources coming from villages are playing a vital role in our growth and building a healthy environment. Villages can't be left out easier as these are backbone for we people who are happily living in cities. Have you ever think of how the farmers grow food for us while living in too hectic condition? These people even don't care of their sleep also and watch their fields in late nights too. This is what farmers life is!

But as consider villagers generate Huge capital for our country.If India had focus only on its agricultural production than it would hav generate huge capital.so INDIAN VILLAGEs can develop as a strengthfor our country if1) Govt pays attention for providing facilities to villagers. 2) Certain programs are adopted to migrate people from city to village or innovate people for by telling them about its advantages. 3) By setting up quality Education.

But they migrate to cities and litter all the place don't use public restrooms and Government provides concrete houses all over TamilNadu and they rent the house and come to cities and sleep outside on city streets and on road side in spite of Government buildings built for them to sleep in it. ! It happens only in India, Especially in TamilNadu. !Middle class people are really in threat because most of them are dunker's, their children tear scooter seats in street corners and scratch paint out of many brand new cars. !If they occupy a location there is no way to send them to a isolated place. !They migrate and make cities worst place to live. ! Most of them live in core area's of the cities which are cozy and litter it, build small huts stuck to compounds of the other buildings and make it look like a slum. ! Their children's pee on street corner and keep stray dogs as their pets with lot of diseases they don't take care of dogs and the pee here and there and don't allow blue cross to take them away. ! This is beyond my and other's frustration limits. They deploy loud speakers and play songs and some devotional songs only on exam times. ! This is really happening in Chennai city and all major cities in TamilNadu. ! I can show you almost 1000's of places in chennai where it happens! May be you are experiencing the same in your city. ! Now are Villagers Our Strength or Our Weakness. ? You decide. !

There is no doubt about the point that villages are our national soul. All countries have envy about our natural resources. So only foreigners wish to come to India. Tourism has been developed by villages only. Villages have the pure environment. But now they are polluted by urbanization. So only the price of agricultural things have been raised. So the villages are the strength of our nation. BE PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN.

Villagers in India manifest a deep loyalty to their village, identifying themselves to strangers as residents of a particular village, harking back to family residence in the village that typically extends into the distant past. A family rooted in a particular village does not easily move to another, and even people who have lived in a city for a generation or two refer to their ancestral village as "our village. ". Indian Villagers share use of common village facilities--the village pond (known in India as a tank) , grazing grounds, temples and shrines, cremation grounds, schools, sitting spaces under large shade trees, wells, and wastelands. Perhaps equally important, fellow villagers share knowledge of their common origin in a locale and of each other's secrets, often going back generations. Interdependence in rural life provides a sense of unity among residents of a village. Thus possibilities are more for converting a village into a powerful source of the nation.

Hi friends, Every person of our country depends upon villages directly or indirectly. It strengthen our country from very past to till yet. But some constructors, builders are trying to ruin the beauty of village by collapsing the land. As we know,all of crops, whatever we get just only because of cultivating land of our nation. I want to focus some point which generally farmer suffered: 1. Not facilitate with proper irrigation facility. 2. Not facilitate with good quality of manure. 3. Most of the farmer suffered from scarcity of water for their land. These things should be rectified by our top leaders. The people who residing in urban area totally depend on rural village generally in every mean e.g, wheat, pulses, vegetables, fruits etc. These are the things for which i would like to villages are our backbone of our country.

Importance of villages in our country cannot be sidelined viewing the growth of cities around. Country like India if compared to a banyan tree, we can find that villages form its basic roots on which the great banyan tree grows and spreads itself. My friends have already given the importance of villages, yet the soul of this great country is now hidden by the waste linen of politicians, who have raped our culture and heritage at the garb of "development". Destruction of farm lands, and environment will wipe off the left over stepping stones of our great nation towards stability and independent market.

Look for example the growth of China. Our markets are flooded with Chinese products, which are much cheaper but fascinating. Understand that these products come from the Chinese villages than their industrial sectors. But, comparing our villages to that of China, we can see that in our country the farmers who form the basic village people suffer the utmost and commit suicide. They are never protected. Government in our country is not serious about village wealth, even though they shed crocodile tears in this regard, and amass wealth to their pockets.

India is good. Villagers are no separate in India. All the city/town/urban people are once from villages only. Strange good culture in India, each one of us wanted to show one is superior than others. Thus cultural competition, in this competition, we are separated in to lot of social segments. Profession wise, washer men, fishermen, shepherd etc. One respect his own profession so as a tradition he/she will not adopt in to any other profession, there is no un touch ability in India. But there is no touch-ability. For example fisher women from ages bring fresh fish to the towns/cities to sell them alive. They are women. The women of non fishermen communities wanted to cook fresh fish. Both are the Indian women. So if Indian fisher woman prepare the fry of fresh fish there and then and if market, all the Indian fishermen will develop like anything. The same way, for Lamb (mutton) there is lot value. The shepherds feel fear to cut and sell the lamb. They sell the live lamb so cheap. If they learn to cut, process and supply the processed mutton, shepherds will develop like any thing. The hand loom weavers will day long make the cloth and sell so cheap for middle men. They claim they are committing suicides due to lack of reasonable price. If they carry the production to the direct consumer, they can feed entire village with their hard work. Since air, water, food is not polluted in the villages, only villagers will occupy India, not the city dwell Indians for fashion, the reason is pollution, blood pressure, diabetic, stress due to hue and cry for life in busy cities. Generations of the villagers only will flourish and sustain. Instead of banking our money in the cities for nothing, the same if we invest on live stock, agriculture in the villages, if we work along with villagers hand in hand by getting down in to the fields, farms, poultry, fisheries, tannery, piggery etc, we will become rich by health and wealth. No farm houses please. Please live in the village and turn your present city house as weekend guest house. Jai Hind.

Undoubtedly villages are the backbone of any country especially for the countries like India. The contribution of the farm sector to the overall GDP is about 60%, the food we eat comes from the villages and it is a source for wide variety of plants which are used for making medicines which cures the diseases that are not cured by the so called drugs. The presence of villages is a boon to the country as the villages reflects the entire country (how the people are) and also the culture and tradition of the country lies in the villages. Any country can be represented by the villages the villages are to be taken care of from extinction as there are no proper transportation and electricity to many villages the people are migrating to the cities for their livelihood which is a main reason for the current food crisis so for the future generations to be healthier we must save our villages and so our culture and tradition.

Villages are the heart of INDIA. Just imagine then how INDIA can survive without villages. GDP of INDIA depends to greater extent on the agriculture, which we find in villages. The basic need of all people. FOOD. Is satisfied by villages. I DON'T KNOW ANY INDUSTRY PRODUCING FOOD FOR THE PEOPLE. Industries in INDIA have made INDIAN ENVIRONMENT more polluted. Mainly including river water. In present we cant see a clean water flowing through any river in INDIA. Industries in INDIA are not adapting the rules they have to obey. No strict actions are not taken towards them. So they just do like anything. So who will like to live in cities where these industries are there. In coming days one will not be able to breath properly. Due to pollution caused by them. People will suffer to many diseases. For ex. (Bhopal gas tragedy). Who will like to drink the water of this dirty rivers then. But this does not happen till in villages. The environment there is very good. But river water has polluted and in near future it will be going on due to industrialization.

I am not opposing industrialization. But the way they are working. They should adapt environment policies. Now at last want to say, "BEFORE WE CRY FOR A CLEAN DROP OF WATER, AND BEFORE EVERYONE GET AFFECTED BY DISEASES, STRIVE TO KEEP HURT OF INDIA BEAUTIFUL AND HEALTHY, AND GROWING.

In villages so many cases of farmer suicide are coming out which shows the current plight of the country and also shows the our farming system is totally dependent on rains and there are no means of irrigation.

The soul of India resides in Village. It represent our culture and nation. The basic need of life, 'food' comes from villages. The great leaders of India has realised the importance of village. Lal Bahadur shastri gave the slogan, " jai jawan, jai kisan ", which shows the strength of villagers. More over, the biggest quality of villagers are that they are working for, not only for their nation but also for other countries. Because, some countries, like Saudi -Arabia fully depend for their food on other agriculture country. The resources on which they are dependent may finish one day, and then they will realise the importance of agriculture. Farmers are dedicating their service for humanity. And, we are thinking, their simple and pure nature, as their foolishness. Whatever lacking in them is due to, not proper facilities available to them. The people living in city, often fall ill, in spite of proper facility of hospitals. But, villager are more stronger, laborious and healthy in comparison of metropolitan people. They rarely fall ill, and even if they got disease, they cure themselves by the medicinal plants present their. Also, life in village is very peaceful, and pollution free. The minds of villager are also much sharper than city people. And, they also get qualified in most prestigious exam of India, like I.A.S. Their is just no comparison between village and city, because health of person can not be supplemented by any other facilities. No doubt, Villages are the strength of India, and we can make it even better, by bringing the infrastructure facilities of city. Proper education system will help to create awareness among the people, and make them more efficient. Transportation, and proper communication, will improve the living standard of villagers, and make them connected with whole world. By achieving all these things, we can make Village to heaven.

Most of the work force in the cities come from villages. 3. As is said lot many times real India lives in villages. This is because it is the hub for protecting our culture. IT is the villages which in the future ll act as the guardians of our moral and cultural values.

I would also like to draw some attention towards the demerits of villages:. 1. Illiteracy. 2. Poverty which leads to huge families ulitimately leading to more poverty. 3.

Villages are the definitely strength of our nation. First of all, we may increase our life span by staying in the village than city and also we can enjoy our tradition in villages only that to we may give protection and support to our parents as a children. In this way, we can increase our parents strength. If the people feels strengthen automatically the village becomes strengthen. Other than this government must to improve education system, awareness about the diseases. Then villages becomes super strength of our nation.

Surely villages are the biggest strength of our nation. We all know that india is largest producers of Tea, Rice sugar canes, etc.. Best quality products are exported, which increase income to our nation.before few decades, about 80% of Indians occupation is farming. I feel regret to say that today's statistics says that only 48% percent of populations are indulged in vegetations. Even though we expect a modern computerised world we all should never forget that agriculture is the backbone every nation.

Indian villages are one of the strongest pillar on which our country is standing!! First and foremost thing is India is agro-based country and it is done basically in villages. So villages are definately our strengths.... India is very rich in culture. But in the race of modernization our culture is almost lost. But we can get to see our culture, our real India is in villages.

Yeah, surely Villages are the backbone of our country. People who live in villages have sympathy towards others, support and help others if others have problem. But in town we do not expect help or support from others.

Villages are important to any kind of country. Only through villages we can conserve our precious natural resources gifted by god. Food is the primary need to all of us which is catered by the farming sector of the country. As now many villages are changing to urban areas.many countries have faced problems of shortage in the production of food. We are currently facing this kind of an situation only because of the lack of education, employment, poverty and other socio economic reasons behind this. So goverment has to provide all the necessary facilities to the farmers and the villagers for there economical and social development.

Villages are definitely the back-bone of our country. From our independence we are very much dependent on agriculture. It is our major strength; agriculture still constitutes 21% of our GDP. But side by side we should not forget that 52% of our GDP is just constituted by services sector and remaining 27% by industry. Villages are a boon to us, they produce the requisite amount of food for the country that is 19% of world food grains and our population is also 19% of world.

Today village are weakness of our country because there is no education, no transportation, lake of knowledge. But it can be our strength by properly utilization of resource, by giving proper education it may become our strength. Because India has more then 50 % villagers, and their income source is only field. But due to lake of water availability they can't get enough benefit if we solve the water problem by using renewable energy sources at low cost then they can gen more and more profit which make our country more powerful as well as strengthen. In village no pollution so they are more health conscious . They make our India healthy as well as wealthy.

In my point of view village people are having much more suspicious mentality and they have more superstition rather than city people. And also they have rebellion mind which is opposing the development of the village. And they belive their local god in too much. And also they have we feeling. They don't allow the people outside the village. The places outside the village is like a alien spaces for villagers. So that reason village are our weekness.

Friends, India lives in villages.... Due to LPG policy of govt they are being reshaped as towns and cities but still we depend on villages for our daily food. But villages are neglected in terms of funds allocation and deprived of basic amenities like roads, electricity, water supply, sanitation, schools and hospitals. They dont get benefits in proportion to their hardwork. Due to all these villagers are migrating to towns and cities for better life and ending up as daily wage labours.....

This situation should be addressed by govt. Even though there are many govt. schemes targeting rural people they are hardly reaching them due to corruption. Villages if taken care can transform INDIA, else hamper the progress of the nation.

No doubt, villages are backbone of our Nation, more than 60% out the GDP is from villages.One should remember 80% of the people live in village but contibuting only 60% of the nation production.In lure of economy growth, indusrialization, privatization, globalization there is huge migration to cities in search of employment. Our policy makers and politicians in view developing economy , neglecting the villages. I say our economy should grow, industial production should increase, every opportunity to make India develope should be utilized but not at the cost of lossing villages, our culture, nature serenity which lies in villages. Villages have been overlooked in the intension of growing economy, obviously this will make villages a weakness to the nation. Our policy makers should concentrate on villages for economy growth, instead following the same old western industrial formula, which has been creating social, cultural and climate problems. Bring another Green revolution, make the nation feed entire World. Service sector is booming in India, we are now being considered as World backbone office, let us take this view to next higher level, make the service sector industry work from our villages, train the young village india in this regard. We should not loss our nature serenity in the name of industialization, else make these places world tourism spots,in this way we can earn revenue and can contribute for climate change protection. Villages are our strength, but we are not using them properly, unknowningly turning them into our weakness.

As Greatleaders said, "Villages are very important to Indian cities" Everybody likes Indian culture and tradition. That much of Importance and respect are come from only by charming of our village beautifulness and honesty. Indian villages are not effected badly to the nature. Villages are backbone of India. There is no villages,no develompent in the Hindustan and also there is no protection for food materials example:- Rice, Dal, Fruits etc. Uses of villages: > Villages are very beautiful to see, having very pleasent nature. >Pure air is obtained by villages. >90% of crops came from only villages. >Villages having (forest areas)medical plants.It gives medical support to us. >Some villages are being tourist places.

Ex:- Ooty, some forest hilltop places. It gives foregin money to india. I think there is no Negative topics to India villages.so INDIA VILLAGES are not a curse to NATION,They boon to our Nation. Jai Hindh..!

As Mahatma Ghanthiji said,"Really Village is Backbone of our India"... as a village person i also want village should have all the facilities like city WITHOUT AFFECTING THE ESSENCE OF Village Environment... For Example, I I I I don't want my village to be a city by collapsing the Farming lands & build a luxurious building. want education like city. want employment like city. want trasport facilities like city.

Do you know? -- Today, India ranks second in worldwide farm output...do u think is it possible? without village..many of the resources only in village -So, villages are the Strength of our Nation. Jaihind!!!
