Domestic smartphone maker Lava has been ranked first by the Indian retailers on trustworthiness as well as timely payouts while Samsung stood second, a report said on Thursday.

According to CyberMedia Research’s (CMR) “Retail Sentiment Index 2018”, the three key parameters for channel partners were sell-out schemes, timely payout and transparency in dealings.


“Despite the stiff competition from Chinese mobile handset brands, Lava has held its ground in offline retail channels, scoring exceptionally well, alongside Samsung,” Satya Mohanty, Head-User Research Practice at CMR said in a statement.

“Our survey findings affirm that Lava has been ranked first by retailers on trustworthiness as well as timely payouts,” he added.

The CMR “Retail Sentiment Index 2018” survey was conducted in 10 major Indian cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata and Guwahati, among others.

“What our survey illustrates is that Offline has to be a strategic long-term move and not merely a knee-jerk tactical one. When brands plan and invest in their channel partners, it pays off for them,” said Prabhu Ram, Head- Industry Intelligence Group (IIG) at CMR.

“Brands such as Samsung and Lava have consistently focused on Offline as a key priority for them, with a long-term strategy, centred around trust, timely payouts and transparency in dealings,” added Satya. IANS

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
