Q The last 18 months due to pandemic have been challenging. How has it impacted the distribution business?
Yes, it has been a difficult situation, but as the saying goes “there is an opportunity lurking in every adversity.” We firmly believe in the saying and that showed returns as well. As the workplaces and education shifted from offline to online the system of “Work from home” saw a new light that increased the demand of telecom products.
Q As more and more distribution houses are looking for online transition, what’s your take on this?
Our company’s deep understanding of the ever-evolving industry and consumer preference in India resulted in making “BHAJANLAL” a top-class multi-brand retail chain with several retail outlets spread across Kolkata, Meghalaya and Assam. Going by the flow, we support the trend but with demand of equal rights for the mainline retailers as well.
