Hii everyone.

I would like to add the impacts of chinese products on Indian market.

If it is anything from needle to toys, electronic gadgets, hot water bottles, Diwali crackers you will find the Chinese version of the same in India at much cheaper price. The price of Chinese goods is 10-70% lower than that of Indian goods. Low price, bulk availability, and variety are some of the favorable features of the Chinese goods in India. Chinese products in huge quantity are put into Indian market and adversely affecting the Indian units. Chinese goods are not only affecting the domestic business and Indian market but also affecting the export market of our country. Indian goods are being replaced by 'Made in China' label both in India as well as abroad. Made in China label is slowly capturing the every segment of Indian market such as electronic goods, textile and garment industry, toys, medicines, car components etc.

Chinese products are mostly low on quality. Such as last year, on Diwali, Indian market had been flooded with Chinese crackers containing Sulphur. Sulphur is dangerous than Nitrate used by Indian cracker makers. Their low price attracted lots of buyers which really affected the revenue of the Indian cracker industry.

Another industry that has been affected so badly by the Chinese version is the toy industry in India. As per the reports of the ASSOCHAM there are so many Chinese toys in the market that Indian toy industry is finding very hard to survive. In the last 5 years near about 40% of the Indian toy companies have been shut down. Rest 20% are on the verge of closing down. In the last 4-5 years near about 2000 SMEs have been closed down. The ASSOCHAM has also revealed that China has the largest toy market in the world and enjoys 45% of the total share whereas India has a very little part in this and enjoys just 0. 51% share. Indian manufacturers serve 20% of the market and the rest is served by China and Italy. In the period between 2001-2012, the total import of the Indian toy industry has increased by 25. 21%. It is expected that toy industry will grow further. Chinese products have also led to the shutdown of 60% of industrial units in Thane and Bhivandi. Hence there are many industries and manufacturers who are facing the heat of Chinese competition.

Chinese works on the strategy of mass production and mass consumption. Main reason of their low cost is the low capital investment and export friendly policies of the Government in China. China is buying raw material from all across the world and selling the end product back to the world. China is the second largest exporter in the world after Germany. It has been predicted that China will also cross Germany in the export by the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Chinese goods are relatively cheaper, widely available and give huge profit to the dealers. But on the other hand Chinese electronic goods are not safe, of inferior quality and come without guarantee or service. These do not last for a long period of time, Chinese goods in India has resulted in the closure of many manufacturing units. Chinese manufacturers are generally bulk manufacturers and have a very structured vendor base. Also, the supply chain cost in China is very less as compared to India making the products further cheap. In addition to this low cost of raw material, high productivity per person, and less indirect taxes and import duties make their good further cheap. Incentives to boost export and subsidies further boost the production.

Some manufacturers in India are even importing Chinese goods and selling these under their label. Indian manufacturers are especially importing the non-branded smartphones from China and selling these with warranty and service. In order to sell dual-SIM smartphones in India China, Wireless Technologies tied up with Reliance Communications, India's second-largest telecommunications service provider.

India must look into its administration to reduce the import of Chinese goods. Our economy is agriculture based and slowly service sector is also getting into it. But the most important contributor to our economy is agriculture. Labour force is available in huge number but ways to earn money are reducing. This is happening because natural resources are reducing which is leading to a significant reduction in agriculture. Poor infrastructure is another problem in India which is adding to the time and cost of production. The Government should encourage local small business enterprises to reduce the foreign goods in the market.

Good morning to All those who have participated in this discussion and those who are yet to participate. I too have gone through the content posted by many. I have a different view, just take This example, we have two kids at home (our children), and out a neighbour has one kid. Our love, care, support, will be more to our children than the neighbour. Some may agree and some may disagree. This is the same situation. We can't or never accept the "other" person out there. Yes, India and China or any brand made can be good or bad. It depends on the material used and the use of people. Marketing a product depends on the market. When the market demand is satisfied or studied in a good manner, such product are launched. Today see we have a smart phone with price 500, what is the quality assured with respect to the brand iPhone, Samsung, OppO, etc like. Some people take care of it and it will last, and some after being purchased ow budget things and mishandle, what will be the situation. Every product has its pros and cons.

Coming to the impost of Chinese product of low quality, it is the trade agreement made. Here the government plays a big role. Why the quality is compromised, since the quality determines the price. Indian products can't go cheap, since the cost of labour is high. Whereas the chines work for there own product. The employment model in China is bit better than India. India are much in service sector, but China in manufacturing sector. Today we Indians have more time in working on social media, but not in field. We elect people at local level, but the decisions are made at center, who are not selected by us. We need a system where people decide on the policies how/where/where to go about. This decision need to be discussed and then a final Decision to be made at the center. Our discussion or our communication are not reaching the top. Here in the case of this Indian and China product, if Indian need Indian product let us work for India. Why we work for other. See many Indian are laboured in foreign country. Hope you all you many travelling from abroad to India carry some goods from that nation. Why, we are still not satisfied with Indian product. Our class is not accepted to many. See for turn around the situation, first our attitude/approach towards the "other" should change. We make argument, but never solution and practice it. Can we make a difference? If so things will change. The India culture reminds "aditi devo bhava". When China product reaches, it's a guest. Respect them. If the products are poor, let the quality assurance team decide and block it. Why an entry to India?

Hi, everyone.

As we all know Chinese goods has captured a huge market of India because of its cheap price rate. So if we make a comparison of this two goods we get a enormous difference.

1. China uses cheap materials for their products which are health and environment hazard too. But where we check quality of Indian commodity then it goes far better than Chinese goods.

2. China does not spend money on innovations and research and just imitate the goods whenever a new goods are innovated in any other countries. On the other hand, India actually spend money on this and that's why Indian product price goes up.

3. In financial year 2015-16, Indian's import from China worth 61 billion dollars whereas Indian's import to China just 9 billion dollars.

As per first two point I think we can't compare Chinese products with Indian's one as obvious Indian goods are better. But as per point 3 I just want to say please opt to purchase more and more Indian goods and try to less consume Chinese product. Because India can't impose ban on Chinese commodity since India is part of World Trade Organisation as well as India earns substantial amount of money by imposing Anti-dumping duty on specific product ofHi, everyone.

Slogans are used by internet campaigns that advocate a boycott of Chinese-made products. Commonly cited a reason for the boycott includes the perceived low quality of products, territorial conflicts involving China, and support for separatist movements within China.

Some group of people recently tried to start a nationwide movement of banning Chinese product in social media. They portrayed this movement as a symbol of nationalism and patriotism. Some of our leaders and so-called political person also supported them. According to them, by not purchasing daily-use Chinese products, we can hamper their economy. They believe that china is using our money to support Pakistan and trying to indulge India in proxy war.

No Indian government can ban the import of Chinese goods as this will be flouting the norms of world trade organisation. The govt at best can impose anti-dumping duty on specific Chinese goods, which churns significant amount of revenue for it. In the age of globalization and cut-throat competition, the basic yardstick to get quality product. Besides, we must accept the facts that China is not the only county that support Pakistan. Moreover, china is our major partner not only in trade but also in international relations. We are working together on various platforms like BRICS, ADB, UN.

As for the trade relations existing between these two counties, every year China exports more than $60 bn of goods and services while India exports $11bn.

Today China imports only 0. 8 percent of its total imports from India while India imports 12.4 per cent of its total imports from China. Similarly, China exports only 2.3% of its total exports to India while India exports 4. 3% of its total exports to china. These figures can easily explain who is dominating side so by banning them or not using their product, we will hamper our economy more than their economy. Extremism is never good, be it of any side.

However, the campaign does have some positive aspects. Like in case of decorative items for festivals Diwali, Holi, we can buy locally produced items along with these Chinese LEDS. By this, we can give little sum of money to native people and appreciate their skills. It will definitely boost their morale and they will tend to produce more quality products in near future. The motto of this campaign should be"A step towards economic sovereignty" rather than being"anti-China":.

We can not ban 100% of Chinese products and raw material. Those who think just Diwali crackers are only Chinese so they didn't know how many Chinese products they are using directly and indirectly. For example - Indian company "A" manufacture its own products in India so we would think its 100% Indian brand but it's wrong because 80% chances that directly indirectly the raw material & services we are taking from China to manufacture in India. Do not get sure by seeing Made in India on gift box, there must be raw material of China. If you think we are using cheap Chinese mobiles but few would be know that Indian brands assemble their products in China or purchase RM from China. Many of don't even know they using many things which have chances of 80% it's purchase from China or made in China. Fox example - cigarette lighter. (can't we even manufacture in India). Again, PC, Laptop, Mobiles, D2H, accessories and other electronics gadget of every brand which are exists on planet all made in China or raw material purchased from China. Chinese raw material and products are used world wide including chemical, electronics, automobile, agricultural, clothing, accessories and every in industrie. And for all this just we are responsible because we not ready to innovate and research we are ready to pay only to fulfil our needs and our service that is why China is doing all this for us. Chinese products are made of cheap material as well quality materials but we don't understand that China selling cheap products in just local market to make us dependent on Chinese products which we purchase frequently and due to this our brain not think to innovate what we required and China take this advantage to make it for us therefore this type of industries are not yet born in India. If we really want to grow ahead of China so don't just ban Chinese products also innovate products for our needs and establish industries here -100% swadeshi. Honestly we are just lazy to innovate and establish our industries that is why someone other takes advantage of this situation. Don't just buy to fulfil your need, work to make your own products as per your need and sell it others to make our country grow.

All that what is being canvassed presently is that we are not in friendly terms with China as such we should ban china goods. How far it is advisable-? Now due to the introduction of china goods, people are using many things in their day to day life which they never used earlier, for example now in each and every home we will find series bulbs. We are decorating our God's photos, houses on every occasion. In olden days we never have such bulbs. Like that many things which we could not get in our Indian market are being introduced by China companies. Even if your friend send any gift from the USA we can easily say that was made in china is it not? China products are being sold at a cheaper rate and of course the quality also not up to the mark that I agree. But we in our India could not get such gadgets, which we are now purchasing from China market.

If our Indian government take a serious note about this and promote our industry so as to produce more and more verities of products and which can beat the prices and quality of China products we should ban china products.

But it is sorry to state that presently in India every thing is going on caste basis, favouritism basis and bribe bases. If this scenario can we think of good products at affordable prices-? Is a million dollars question. I am very confident if in India the Casteism is completely abolished and Government recognise all castes and religions equally without any discrimination. Then we can achieve miracles which may beat the market of not only China but also any other country. It is pertinent to note in this connection that we are seeing day after day the migration of our highly intellectual people to various advanced countries as they are not having proper jobs and recognition in our India. If the same is continued I am sure that one day we will see some castes in India which we are now saying as upper castes will completely disappear in India and the same may grow in you. S or you. K. It is high time to the Government to save our country from the vote bank politics. Let us hope our India may be free from all evils and become an advanced country like US and UK etc. , in a short span of time.

The main thing about the Chinese goods is they are cheaper. You may say they are of low quality, but that doesn't mean that they can't produce good quality products. And the Chinese products are mainly electronic goods especially smart phones, Almost all smart phones are produced in China.

When I think of buying Chinese goods, what comes to my mind is disputes between China and India. There are many issues like the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, China blocking India's efforts to bring about a UN ban on Jaish-e-Mohammad leader Masood Azhar, Beijing blocking India's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) as well as the military standoff at Doklam lasting 73 days.

The trade between two counties is very important. If we look into imports and exports, India is importing four times then what it is exporting. You should note that if we reduce imports, or if we lay heavy taxes on Chinese products, India is more badly affected then China.

And tell me, how many of you have smart phones which are not of Chinese company, or whose materials are not made in China? Even I don't wanted to buy a Chinese phone, but there is no choice. It's not people's fault. They can't pay more when cheaper things are available.

So I think it's not possible for India or any other country to beat China in smart phone manufacturing. But we can definitely produce other electronics things at cheaper price which we import from China to reduce trade deficit.

But if you know the current facts, the relationship between India and China is improving, and if trade grows it's good for both countries. We have always seen China as an enemy, but nowadays miracles are happening, like if you see US and North Korea. So I hope the relationship between India and China improves, and a day comes when we don't have to bother whether we have to purchase Indian or Chinese products.

Currently, we should try to reduce Chinese goods usage as much as possible. And government should give subsidies to produce goods which are mostly imported from China. But simply asking people to buy Indian products even when the Chinese products are cheap or laying heavy taxes on Chinese products is not an good idea.

Hi everyone!

According to my point of view, we can't stop buying Chinese goods, it's highly impossible and most of them say Chinese goods are low-quality materials but you know one thing friends. There is an element called silicon and it is an important part of an electronic chip for transmission purposes and that chip is literally used in all of the laptops, pc components, mobile components, in short. Without silicon we can't make electronics, so by the way apple will also use silicon right? and you know that even the best mobile brand *apple* getting its silicon chips for China? and nearly 46% of apple's suppliers are Chinese! so don't say them as cheap quality materials. And for all the ppl who thinks to boycott Chinese products I have one question. Think of a mobile brand or what mobile brand you are having? I'm pretty damn sure most of us will have the Chinese brand. But yes in India, we also have low-quality Chinese products that's because they just export the second or third quality products to us and they use their first products. But if we see in India. We export the first quality products and use the second quality products this is because most of us just buy the cheap one and not the quality one if we all consider buying Indian goods the Chinese automatically reduces the exports to us and don't think I'm an anti-Indian ok lol. Pure Indian blood is running in my body. I'm just saying my point of view and also there is a reason for India to export first quality products and that is *CORRUPTION*. Due to corruption, our economy has decreased so we are pushed to sell our first quality goods to stabilize the economy. But in China, I think there is very little corruption compared to India. If there is no corruption in India then our economy will gradually increase we use our own first quality products and sell the other quality products so we reduce the usage of other countries' products and after some years (maybe) our country will be of fully Indian products and that's the every Indian's wish. Hope that day will come soon but it happens only if every Indian thinks about it.

Thank you.

JAI HIND! VANDE MATARAM!

It's not a matter of the countries boundary that India and China both are completed to each other but in few cases both products are good. As it is very clear like Chinese goods are shape but Indian goods have more quality Chinese goods look more attractive and we know one thing very clearly like the Indian people want the cheap product with more attractiveness if the product have more attractiveness it doesn't matter it has the quality or not that's why the Chinese goods are having a good sale in the country like India. If we have to buy the quality product it is very clear we have to pay high amount of money and most of the population in the India are poor and middle class that's why the dependency on the Chinese product increases in most of the reasons.

I also say if you have to buy something that is going to be long lasting and you want to do like you want something that is based upon your quality that you buy please the Indian product because that give warranty to but if you have to buy the cheap product if you have to buy like if you have to buy that toys for your children don't think that it is Indian or Chinese you just buy the thing that is she because that will be broke and few days itself but if you have to buy something like you if you have to buy television if you have to buy a motorcycle or why something that is going to that you where you are going to invest lot of money please don't go for the Chinese thing but one I want to also mention like we can't ignore the complete China on the basis that it is giving d chief and non quality product because if we are not buying the product directly but what happened actually most of the countries are there most of the MNCs are there who are buying the product from the China and they are using in their element like Apple is there buying the mobile from the Apple is not the Chinese company but we are buying that but Apple is using the shape that is made up of silicon and mostly the 65% of that silicon is completely important from the Chinese so we can't ignore something like that.
