Jewar airport may see Chinese links snapped

Greater Noida: The post-Galwan anti-Chinese sentiment has started taking a toll on 'Made in China' products in the retail markers across the National Capital Region with a whopping 70 per cent decline in the sale.

The market associations across the NCR confirmed that the anti-Chinese sentiment has led to the decline in sale of such products and the consumers are ready to wait for alternative products for 10-15 days.

In the electronic markets, where most of the products are imported from China, there is a sudden surge in demand of Indian made products, and even products from other countries like Taiwan are largely being accepted by the consumers.

Bharat Ahuja, president, Bhagirathi Palace Market Association said, "There is a steep decline of about 70 per cent in sale of Chinese products. Since the import was stopped due to Covid-19, the shopkeepers had not placed orders due to apprehensions over restarting of Chinese units. Now, since the Galwan incident, the consumers are demanding non-Chinese goods."

"This has created an immense opportunity for the Indian companies and small and medium industries. It is time that the government shall step into help made in India grow," he added. Noida's Atta Market is also witnessing a steep decline in sale of such products. "People are angry. At times, they even yell on shop owners for displaying Made in China goods for sale. Customers are entering shops with an aim to buy non-Chinese products.
