DT: What are the major challenges for distribution business in India?

Mr. Satish: The main challenges today is competition for getting the right distribution channel because when it comes to finances most of the people who were into distribution are moving out of distribution now. The distribution channel is dwindling by the day so you have to find the right channel and you have to concentrate on the channel that is left for you. Due to these challenges, big channel houses are moving out of distribution business now. Partners are also moving into online because they are interacting directly with the end customers. Overall, we always look to work with right set of partners who are moving in value chain and diversifying their business into various verticals.
