What are the prom­i­nent chal­lenges faced by the IT re­sellers in Panaji? Na­graj Prabhu: E Com­merce is the ma­jor chal­lenge which has se­verely im­pacted the chan­nel ecosys­tem. The sec­ond ma­jor chal­lenge is de­clin­ing de­mand for as­sem­bled PCs. The as­sem­bled PC mar­ket is on the verge of shut down in Panaji. Con­sumer’s grow­ing in­cli­na­tion to­wards branded PCs and nar­row dif­fer­ence in the price have made it dif­fi­cult for the as­sem­blers to sus­tain in the mar­ket. The de­mand for as­sem­bled PCs is de­clin­ing day by day. Ear­lier, as­sem­blers used to as­sem­ble nearly 500-600 ma­chines ev­ery day. To­day, the num­ber has come down to al­most 150 ma­chines.

The gov­ern­ment of Goa has re­cently pub­lished a pol­icy draft on the IT pol­icy? What are re­sellers’ ex­pec­ta­tions from the gov­ern­ment for bet­ter­ment of the IT busi­ness?

Na­graj Prabhu: We feel that the pol­icy should be draft tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the in­ter­est of hun­dreds of IT pro­fes­sion­als in Goa. The lo­cals should get the ben­e­fits un­der the pol­icy and they should get a fair chance to do busi­ness. We feel that while pulling in­vest­ment in the IT sec­tor from out­side, the gov­ern­ment needs to en­sure that it will not ham­per the in­ter­est of lo­cal public.
