Many of you participated in the LocalCircles Mood of the Consumer survey. Below is the final survey report which has been carried by multiple print, television and digital media outlets. You are welcome to share the same as well with your social media. They key message for the Government and Industry is: people have cut on discretionary spending in Aug-Sep 2019, likely to come back in the market in Oct 2019 but the spike may be temporary as in the 6 month outlook, only 31% see an improvement in their financial situation.

The market survey should also depict practical side of the human behavior. Due you think the Car or Motor Cycle sell should go on increasing ? It is not practically possible. Every house has almost vehicles and they have never expected the vehicle and provisions have not been made for parking. They park now on the road. In metros, many of the high profile houses, there are more number of vehicles than the persons available in the house. The Roads are already jam packed. Instead, there should be more public transports.
So far as houses/ flats are concerned, there are now more houses than the families in the town. Builders have deviating norms before introduction of RERA. Now many of the builders are in jail for the irregularities committed by them. Due to strigent action by the government under Money loundering Act, many politicians, business persons are under the strict observation of the Income Tax an ED. Hence, black money could not be utilized for creation of assets like vehicle and flats.
The survey should bring out such facts. more

I feel very happy that sell of cars reduced. I wanted that low cost EMI should have been removed for buying cars in 2011 as, when, as a Project Manager I used to visit our site at Andheri, Mumbai. I had to travel from Vashi, Navi Mumbai to Andheri. But on 1st day itself, I took decision to use train and buses/auto rickshaw to visit the site instead of using car, because of traffic jam and more time consuming. Let car manufacturers use their extra manpower to open low cost service center in different locations. Government should stop 'Low Cost EMI' for buying car. more
