Ban all imports, lets go back to cave man life.
Don’t make steps to start and financing for a business easy, just keep banning things.

I don’t understand this stupid government (BJP, Congress, AAP, every Indian govt), they don’t have money to build roads, but they will tax silicon fabrication items like processors and chips saying it will encourage “Make in India”. It takes 25 – 40 Billion dollars and 10 years to start a fab. Even China with all its money tried an failed twice, but in India it’ll happen with zero investment and ever changing taxation laws. Good luck!

Chyeena is no ordinary country. It is a blackhole for other countries’ prosperity. It will suck every bit of it. At the same time, it is a supernova like phenomena where it blasts you with all the misery it can.

@vijkap201 yup..but everything cannot be build here..That even the govt knows..But they are forcing businesses to think ‘what if we dont get this from China,etc etc ’..
Do we need to be self reliant atleast some % or atleast in some sector…
India has the resources to do it that is damn sure..
’What if’’ – Business needs to think this and prepare proposals and submit to the govt..Atleast this govt will make it happen whether it is land, resources, infrastructures..

India is giving a strong message to the world that actions like this can be taken and it is still not late..
‘Better LATE than Never’!!..

Meanwhile those local retailers majority relying on reselling these imported goods can die of uncleared debts/hunger .. just like the inefficient implementation of lockdown
Everything is a test!

Who asked them to die..
They can still sell whatever left and they should change their focus thatz all..
Nothing is impossible..
It is too easy to ‘cry’ on such decisions..

Ask?
Where do u even find this decency? smile
Asking is a form of request, you take a decision and shove it on someone’s face.. that’s not asking.. its shitting stuck_out_tongue

Nothing is impossible
You can become something in to nothing in a matter of couple of months
And can also become something from nothing in the next few months/years..
Who cares what happens in those days/weeks/months/ years?

Oh.. wait, why do we even have a government?
Is it for the welfare of the people?

Its your fault 😜, you never paid any attention to Motabhai’s shopping app. The Govt had no other option 🤣

On a side note.. who is even buying from Ali Express these days? smile
No Economical shipping options available.. Even if there are few, clearance takes way too long (Of course bribing still works.. and that will never change)

If not AliExpress, even Amazon.com or other overseas online retailers when we have the best idiotic tax system in the world that charges 77%+GST for every personal import
Its been months since i shopped from AE and same applies to Amazon/BHPhoto/Adorama/NewEgg.. too Bad this Black Friday sale is only for those with Friends/relatives coming from the US

You can’t just keep on banning apps . Current gov need to have alternative before banning , Don’t understand the strategy on banning even online shopping apps. Banning apps and selling Chinese goods on every nook and cranny doesn’t help . We need to build parallel stream before banning else its just a free fall for a healthy ecosystem .

Illiterate govt doesn’t know anything other than banning apps. And stupid bhakts are lapping on it.

Over-excited Jio Network might’ve done that (Unable to access website*)
Try any other mobile network/Broadband.. it should work w/o VPN

PS: Avoid paying for something (via CC/DC…) with VPN-ON

Being a signatory to International WTO agreements, India cannot legally ban sales of any imported item. Thatswhy Govt is resorting to excuses of security for banning apps, which will have no impact on sale of Chinese goods in India. It will only shift the selling platforms for Chinese goods. There’s no short-term solution for becoming self reliant especially competing with China. No country in the world has been able to compete with China so far in terms of low cost manufacturing. These temporary measures are only meant for creating sensation & propoganda without any visible change in the ground reality. Motabhai happens to be the biggest beneficiary of such decisions

Precisely!
If u want to win the race, eliminate the competition via otther factors to guarantee win for incompetents
The same happened with LalaMove too..
They knew the sheepish followers will promote it as a ban on the company instead of just the app and the normal people would shy away from opting their service

// After raising over US$450 million from investors, and growing to three million drivers and 28 million users—most of whom are in China—in nearly 400 Asian cities, seven-year-old Lalamove plans to ride the #Covid19 wave into the US, with a launch this year.
Lalamove has also benefited from the pandemic’s logistics demand, where other companies have crashed and burned. //

Please read up a bit more on how economy and free markets work.
Here is a video which explains it well –

Do you know why officers in govt organizations are so lazy and don’t work hard ? Because there is no competition and no threat to their job security. Have you seen the difference in service in private and PSU banks ?

The same happens to the industry as well if you start protecting it from market forces too much. We tried the socialist model till 1991 and were poor as hell, things changed for the better later. Now, we are repeating the same mistakes again.

India can encourage industry by reducing taxes, giving sops, allowing free investment, showing policy stability. And after we have gained a good manufacturing capability, then raise barriers slowly to an extent to protect local industries.
