How do you analyse IT growth in Allahabad ?
IT growth so far is excellent in Allahabad. Business in IT sector is better in the city compared to other regions in the eastern belt. From 1994 onwards, IT market has become prominent sector in the city. Here we have all facilities like vendor security, welfare associations, etc.
What are the challenges here that IT resellers are tackling?
The business is stable here, but online market has poor impact on the offline market. But now we are hopeful as UP government has imposed 5% entry tax on e-commerce sites, market will revise itself. While in the city every reseller’s main focus is to increase margin, earlier due to online retailing, every trader was dealing at low margin. Once margin is increased, it will create healthy environment to do business.
