“e-commerce has helped in the growth of consumer durable sector in a big way despite economy not doing too well. Real estate sector is de-growing for last 2-3 years and one of the way to support it to encourage B2B e-commerce which will bring down overall construction cost. Free interstate movement of goods without any form ( till GST becomes a reality ) will immensely help. Anti dumping duty, whichever product it is imposed on, is only helping big companies make more money at the cost of end consumers. Customer focused policies will help this sector take off to a healthy growth.”
