Mr. Sandeep Tarkas of Future Group said,
The markets and the spirits were down after Diwali and The Great Indian Shopping Festival came as a mood lifter. PSU and Government employees who go retrospective arrears also helped to boost the consumption.
We have reliably learnt that Future Group Plans to make this an Annual Shopping event and is likely to Trademark “The Great Indian Shopping Festival” phrase for the same.
