The DQWeek (Kolkata) - - FRONT PAGE - JY­OTI BHA­GAT Kolkata

Fes­tiv­i­ties have started in the city of joy, Kolkata as the pros­per­ous Durga Pujo have started.

While the streets and bazaars are busy with cus­tomers; IT mar­ket is de­serted of them. In IT trade and other re­lated sec­tors the busi­ness mode is off due to fes­tive at­mos­phere. The whole crowd is busy in shop­ping for pujo and pan­daal gaz­ing. Mean­while, the gov­ern­ment sec­tor is also closed and peo­ple are not buy­ing and sell­ing the IT prod­ucts.

Talk­ing to The DQ Week, Shiv Ku­mar Modi of Trista Mar­ket­ing has ex­pressed him­self on the sit­u­a­tion of the Kolkata IT mar­ket. Modi says, “The mar­ket is al­most closed as ev­ery­body is in the hol­i­day mood. Peo­ple are not buy­ing IT prod­ucts as they are en­joy­ing the hol­i­day at­mos­phere. But af­ter the Pujo dur­ing Di­wali we traders are ex­pect­ing some good busi­ness.”

Ashish Ku­mar Paul of Vi­sion Comtech says, “We are go­ing in loss be­cause of the hol­i­days in the state. Right now every­thing is in fes­tive mood and we are also en­joy­ing cel­e­bra­tions. So, we have also closed the shops as there is no such profit in this week at least.’

Ab­hishek Swaragi of Bit In­fo­me­dia shares, “We traders are in a wait­ing mode for Di­wali as Di­wali brings big busi­nesses ev­ery year to us. Be­fore pujo we had cou­ple of good deals but now we are un­able to sell due to the cel­e­bra­tion and the hol­i­day.”
