Green shoots in the economy are giving a lot of confidence to consumer demand ....


Marked growth in consumer confidence this festive season; Consumers to spend 40% more this Diwali: Survey

Thesynergyonline Economics Bureau

Riding on the back of an uptick in the economy and improving perception for better job prospects, coupled with steady lowering of interest rates, the consumer demand is witnessing a marked growth of as much 40 per cent in the ongoing festival season this year, as compared to 2015, an ASSOCHAM survey has said.

Notably, rural demand is adding to the festive fervour, as good Monsoon has boosted confidence among the farmers and farm labour. Clear pick up is visible in the sale of two-wheelers, jewellery and even consumer durables in the rural and semi-rural areas in most parts of the country. However, as noted in earlier ASSOCHAM survey, the demand for real estate and housing remains very low key.

Must pay most dearly in their turn.

A treasure that was never yours,
Thief, you have been warned, beware
Of finding more than treasure there."
