In front of a sharp decrease in consumption, increase of online sales have to be at the expense of the bazaar.

where is the slowdown ?? all the highly educated people are checking slowdown via online sales. How about unorganized sector ?? Demonetisation didn''t stop salaries of bank employees, IT software engineers and Haldiram, Pizza Hut, Dominos employees salaries. Slowdown came in indoor manufacturing, woodwork, construction, weaving, garment production units. Before checking what where is Sensex, what is Consumption of flipkart, kindly check how big is 1% fall in GDP. If the so called educated cant related fall in GDP with meagre to slowdown, then shame on such kind of education and bogus, fraud information. HUL itself does sale of 50,000 crore plus doesn''t mean slowdown isn''t there. First check, what the people who were relieved of their duties from Maruti, Hyundai are doing nowdays. Check those people who lost jobs in Demonetisation, what salaries are they working for now. 20,000 rupees then is not equal to 15,000 now. Simple maths.

WHAT ECONOMY SLOWING DOWN. WHEN WE USED TO BUY CARS THE PRICE INCLUDED EXCISE SALES TAX ETC WHICH WAS PAID BY MANUFACTURERS AND CHARGED TO BUYERS MANUFACTURERS USED TO CLAIM MODVAT. AFTER GST THE BUYER HAS TO PAY GST IN LIEU OF EXCISE AND SALES TAX SO HOW DOES THE GST INCREASE THE PRICE IF THE CAR .AS A MATTER FACT GST IS LOWER THAN COMBINED EXCISE AND SALES TAX. THE MANUFACTURER ALSO GETS BENEFIT OF GST AGAINST GST HE TAKES FROM THE BUYER .SO HOW DOES THE GST AFFECT THE PROFIT OF THE MANUFACTURER BOTH MEDIA AND FM DOES NOT ANALYSE THE FACTS AND DETAILS ALL THESE FAKE NARRATIVES ARE CREATED TI PRESSURISE THE GOVT FIR MORE SOPS AND TAX RELIEF .

Who said about economic slowdown? High real estate prices are minimising the profit of shops.. because of high shop rental, they were unable to sell at cheaper price.
