Hello friends. My point of view is that it is amount of money in your pocket which enforces you to buy a particular product because if a person do not have budget to buy a quality product then how can he buy the product. The best example which I would like to give is, the apple available in the market they range from 40 rs per kg to 100 rs pkg so suppose if I have only 50 rs in my pocket how can I buy the good quality i.e. 100 rs pkg apple. Thus I would end up saying that it is only the standard of living of particular people which lets you to compromise on the quality.

Are Indians Less Quality Conscious? - Group Discussion

Yes! The bad quality of products has affected the Indian society so much. The peoples purchases the poor quality products and suffers from many problem. Government of India quite ignores the quality of material and other items build in the India. The peoples also has wrong interpretation about the product quality, they thinks that the product of high prices are good and products with low prices are bad but this is not true because many times the cheaper product works for the long times whereas the high rate price products destroy after using few times. There are many problems that peoples are facing with the bad quality of product: 1. Low standard of living. 2. Standard of particular brand decreasing. 3. People are unsafe with bad quality of products. 4. Market demand decreasing. 5. Lower price products are no more purchased. 6. Export and import of items decreased. 7. Bad quality products adversely affect the partnership with other countries in the field of market. I think the Government should take a serious step in improving the quality of products.

A cheap quality product usually comes with more quantity. A person who cannot afford to buy a product of high price usually ends up buying a cheap product. But it does not mean that he does not want to buy a good quality product. We usually compromise on the quality by seeing the price of the product.

Hello Everyone. Its a great opportunity to express our personal belief and opinion here through this discussion. Many of us have specific views about Indians are quality conscious or not, but I am of the opinion that its matter of choice about where we do not want to compromise on quality and where we can, taking into consideration monetary, time and other resource constraints. For eg: even if a person is poor, don't you think he tries to get best possible quality in that, he wants to afford the fees of best doctor for health of his family, he eats the best that he can afford. These are the necessities of life where no compromise can be done. It will be detrimental if he compromises on quality of basic necessities. But if I talk about luxuries he may think of spending on cheap and satisfying products. For example, if somebody has to buy a fan for his room and AC for this son room, he will think of buying best quality fan so that it lasts longer & instead of buying AC from OGeneral (the most expensive brand sold in India) he may go ahead with LLoyd AC (money constraint). Ok, I have talked enough about lower class compromising because of monetary constraints. Let me talk about upper class. Suppose a very rich person have to take a flight for his meeting with International delegates. He forgets to carry his comb which is essential if one wants to look fresh after a journey of 20 hours. Do you think, he will go and look for the most expensive brand that he generally buys? No, he will simply end up buying whatever quality comb is easily available. So, I think it can be concluded that being quality conscious is a function of constraint be it monetary, time or otherwise.

Indians are not less sensitive about quality. But the problem here is that, Indians tend to be sensitive over what they think is the quality of a product. Be it the rich or poor, Indians invariably relate quality to the price and more

Hello everyone, It's a great opportunity for me to say something upon this interesting topic. This is not good to say about Indians that they are less quality conscious. As well as we know that most of our population are not so rich. Even they are not capable to fulfill their whole desires. They are forced to compromise their some desires according to their earning capability. This is well known that they purchase car, bike, cloths, houses or their so many other wants. Some of them are capable to buy a costly car which range can be above 10 to 15 lakhs, but most of their ranges are also can be less than 5 or 2 lakhs. One thing is also so important that we well know that here is a mental culture in our country India that is to save money for the future. There is a big unemployment in our country. This is also a big reason for this. An unemployed person could not have a heavy pocket because their financial source does not be so stronger and they have a big responsibility of their family. So it is not correct to say Indians less quality conscious, the truth is some of the Indians are compelled with their income. Thanks.

As per my view, every person want to become rich so obviously if he would be rich the quality consciousness comes their way. As many international brands are stepping in India after liberalisation and globalization with new trends so I believe that people in India are being more conscious not only for its quality but for trends as well.

I do support for my country. We cannot say people of India are less quality conscious. There are lot of factors which affects persons mentality while buying a product. He may be quality conscious but his budget has to accommodate it otherwise he go for what he can but in that too he choose which is best this shows he is quality conscious. For example if a middle class man wants to buy a class he can't afford costly car like Audi in that case he goes for the best in the category he can afford so Indians are surely quality conscious.

HELLO FRIENDS. Here in this topic, the question in the Indian people are quality conscious or not. And according to my point of view, most of the people are quality conscious, because majority of the people whether rich or poor, would always been ask about the quality of the product before buying it. Let us take an example:- suppose I am a merchant or owner of a branded outlet. Now if some customer comes in my outlet choose some product and then comes to me, would ask about the quality that "this item is good or not". Whether he is going to buy that item or not, he most probably will ask about the quality of that product, now here only we got the answer that most of the people are quality conscious. And we always go through the majority, so we can say that Indian people are quality conscious.

Well the topic is good but it has only one answer: "income". In India people of every section of society wants quality, but due to less income most of the people compromise and shift to less quality products, on the other hand rich people can buy quality products as they have sufficient money power moreover these quality products are also high in prices because of growing demands in richer section of the society so there is no scope of poor people to become quality conscious.

Hello everyone! This is certainly a debatable topic. Indian is a country where there is always been irregular share of money amongst its citizen, ours is a country where rich person gets richer and the poor gets poorer. In this economic inequality, common man has to think twice when he thinking of buying menial things like groceries for home. Comparing and buying has become a routine. In this situation the manufacturing industry which aims at high sales of products in order to reduce the rates of their products ignore the quality factor of the product. The 'Chalta hai!' attitude of the citizens of the country have in some way led to the decrease in the quality of products in the country. The steps taken by the government like ISI mark AGMARK are helping maintain the quality of the product. These standards should be followed strictly to improve the quality of the products manufactured in the country.

People usually compare quality today with brand & price. There is a very fine line between quality and price. General buying tendency says branded products which are costly will have better quality. But the fact is, this is usually not the case. Many brands in the market offer good quality products like the recent Baba Ramdev product range has great quality and worthy prices. Though many famous brands are faking with fancy advertisements and catchy lines. When it comes to quality check, it is just the government who can intervene and help consumer to choose best. Strict actions for those found guilty will sure improve levels of quality.

Hi friends, No one in the world is quality conscious but quality conscious. When it comes to India as majority of the people, around 70% of the people can't afford a better product. As the same product, lesser in quality and price, is available in the market so, they go for it. Its not their by choice its their circumstances that force him to be money conscious not quality. Remaining 30% of indians they are quality conscious in other way means they are always looking for goodest quality as they can afford. So finally we could say that those not having money are money conscious and those having money are quality conscious. Thanks.

Well according to my view this can't be concluded as whole that if India is quality conscious or not. This actually is a personal phenomenon and the same behavior can't be expected from everyone. A product which is inferior to one may be superior for another like a black and white TV may be superior to a very poor family where the same act as a inferior product for a rich person. Superiority and inferiority is a relative concept which depends on the income of the person. Also a person tries to have the best deal while purchasing a product both in quality and price but within his/her budget constraint. Moreover, quality of a product and income of a consumer is directly related i.e. the more the income of a person,

I would like to say about this topic is that India is developing country. Here people are divided in two group rich people and poor people. So rich people never compromise quality but poor people always prefer quantity rather than quality because they don't have enough money to buy good quality product. If someone highly educate but not have enough money then maybe he purchase less quality product but if some people have rich but they are not well educate so they don't know about good quality may be the purchase less quality product. Actually it is depend on mindset of people what are they thinking but main reason is money.

Hi FRIENDS, I would like express my views on this topic also. India is a developing country. Some people are poor. Some are mediocre and some are rich. Rich people not compromise with quality. But poor people need food in their respected money. Quality doesn't matter for them. On the other hand mediocre also exist here. For mediocre quality depends upon their salary and and mindset. If their pocket allow they will go with quality otherwise not. But nowadays things are changing middle class people are going with quality. They think they will buy less thing but of good quality. In short India people purchasing power and mindset depends upon people they will go with quality or not.

No matter how much he earns if he is not aware of Armani etc, he won't purchase it and on the other side if a person is well educated yet does not earn enough, will not go for high quality items when he can go with substandard. Hence, a combination of both is necessary which India lacks a lot. So yes I do agree with the topic.

Being quality conscious means only considering quality as a parameter at the time of purchasing goods or services. But Indians are not only quality conscious but also price sensitive. Like everyone we need quality at lowest possible prices. Rich and upper middle class families never compromise on quality but poor and lower middle class families do compromise at certain point of a time. Most of the Indian population being poor hardly consider quality because for them even if they get meals twice a day is enough for them. So it can be said that rich Indian people are quality conscious whereas people with low income aren't. Thus it can only be said that Most of the Indians are less quality conscious and not all of them. Thank you.

There are folks which belong to wealthier class and from middle class, vast share of India's population comes from poor background (BPL families). Yes, us Indians do care about quantity many a times and it is basically comes down to one's perspective of things and richer lot will always go for quality and other lot will always go for economic thing.

There is one great thing about us Indians is that whatever we are getting we are more than happy and in hard times we are all together and we show a never die spirit.

The topic is Indians are less quality conscious, as per my concern this is totally wrong. I just want to divide the peoples of India in two parts 1st who comes under rich families, middle class and the poor one. It is quite obvious that rich people does not care about money obviously they will buy quality products problem will occur with middle and poor families it will depend upon their income. 2nd category who comes under uneducated rich people like people who lives in villages they do not have any idea regarding the quality and quantity. They look for the quantity only. And another 1 more thing is that the mentality in India that people think that high price products are only good in quality but it is always not true. THANK YOU.

Hi friends, India is developing country. We can see lot of diversities among the people region, climate and also in mentality too. Our peoples are mostly from villages, there literature rate is not affordable when comparing with city people and most of them are below poverty line, therefore their mentality will be " something is always better than nothing". So they won't care about the qualities they want to face the situation so they need some product. Usually they won't mention the product name in the shop but they mention the product at the rate, what they have (5 rupees bathing soap). Many of us had experienced this before.

How can we expect them to think about quality. But when it comes to middle class, they are definitely quality conscious. So as per my view, it depends upon standard of living of person (which in turn includes their economic class, education and awareness).

According to me we can't say that India is less quality conscious. It is dependent on two reasons. Either money or awareness. India is the country of villages, so in villages people are rich but they are not aware the latest product. The other reason is all India's populations 40 percentage are below poverty line.

I will tell one example few days before me and my grandmother went to market, my grandmother searching some shop I asked what you want then she said I want "PEARS" bath soap because it is very good for skin.

As far as my consciousness goes, I think Indian are less quality conscious. This is due to a large population of India resides in village and sub towns. This sector of population are not worried about the quality. They are only worried if they are getting the commodity. Taking example of food, the quality of food is getting bad. The nutritional value of food is quite poor. But still people are either consuming it willingly and unwillingly both. Taking other example, the quality of R&D work that is happening in our country is far below standard. There is no good investment over the quality improvement.

Definitely dudes, The Indians are lagging with quality only because of competition. And I can say it as Indian mentality. Indian people always take the direction where the cost is less. Less cost means we have to reduce the quality. Of course the quality products are always treated well.

Hi Friends, I have some opinions to be shared. Basically quality consciousness comes with the literacy and his/ her knowledge in applying concepts gained. I do agree the family status will be a reason for quality consciousness but it will be to some extent. May be the buying ability will be limited But we can improve the quality consciousness by conserving the food. For Instance, Many people know that used oil will cause problem, But we used to it. Instead we need to minimize the frequency of using used oil, This can be achieved only if we got literacy on hygienic life / ads on it. Overall its up to each individual to adhere to quality consciousness.

According to me consciousness about. Any product or service arouses only out of awareness of people. This means if people are aware of good & bad impacts of the quality of. Services they receive from the various vendors then only they would be conscious about the quality of the product, but since awareness is one of the factors that is lacking in most of the Indians that may be either because of illiteracy or due to lack of info and experience that can vary between person to person, Indians are less quality conscious. The most obvious example of lack of quality consciousness is that most of the people buy the eatables, medicines and other such products without being concerned about the date of expiry. Also most of the people give priority to the money that is to be spend on the commodity. That is why they end up buying those goods that cost less by keeping the quality of goods at stake.

Hi friends, in my point of view Indians are less quality conscious because good quality product requires high price in general, but as we know that in India their are all three types of class-rich, middle, poor, but last two class ie middle and poor class of people are more in our country. So they can't afford such a high price, so they are bound to manage with those product which has less price or brand-less product. Their would be one more reason that today still there are lots of uneducated people in our country and prefer to follow their tradition as well as quality doesn't mean to them anything but only quantity, they even don't know about branded product and used to of buying priceless things.

Every body in this world likes good qualitative products, nobody is fool who says I like less qualitative product, it is very simple the person who earns much will choose best quality, person with average earning will go for better and other low earning people go for low quality. In India you will find all this three classes, hence we can say that in India people choose quality according to their need and capability.

Hello friends, according to my thinking Indian population are the second largest number in the world, so in the metropolitan cites people are not afford the price of any product either it was cloth or food, and you see my friends say Indians are more judgmental about products they do not see the quality of product, they see only quantity of product. So brand are not important for a good product. THANK you.

India is a country with rich, poor and middle class people. I don't think every one look forth for quality because they can buy product according to what they afford. Few people buy only branded things, few go for things according to the color, material etc. But most of t people get things they can afford. And we all know as cost decreases qty also decreases.

Hi friends in my point of view India is not a low quality conscious. Because our country has a large population but there will be no money to buy things like other country. Examples take some engineering colleges in other country colleges are very nice in teaching and everything by giving large money but here we are not able to give that amount of money.

I do not agree with this statement that Indians are less quality conscious. According to me Indians are as much as quality conscious like people of other countries. But in India quality varies from person to person, like people who are rich go for quality products and poor people go for less quality products. But the trouble is more than 75% people of India are middle class and their earnings are limited and on top of that they have to do saving for their children, hence sometimes they have to compromise in quality but that does not mean we are less quality conscious.

Hello Friends. We can easily admire that the Indian population can be categorized into certain levels. Each one of us prefers to live a quality life but due to price rise in almost each commodity every one can not afford to make use of expensive materials. Hence they have to compromise with quality. Well I must say, for this Indian Government must take required steps to reduce poverty and decrease the prices.

Hello everyone, In my point of view I am totally disagree with given sentence that is "Indians are less sensitive about the quality of the product", it is because it all depends upon the need of the particular person. When we are talking about India the we know that India is a one of the fastest growing country in the world and hence the living standard of the people of India is according to that. So we are not suppose to compare the standard of living of Indian and the American, because it fully depends upon the need of the people. For example before some years the communication system in India is fully depend upon the post office, but now most of the people can afford mobile so they are using it and this came only because of their improved life style. If anyone dose not think about their need and always use qualitative things in that case they have to suffer the loss for that. For example think if I have to by a car for going to office. I live in Patna, and if I am going to buy BMW for that then it can be problematic for me because all roads of Patna are not so good that we can run BMW over

I think the product we use how long it persists without causing any damage, whether we are comfortable with this or not, how much it is essential to us and most important is we will buy the product from the next time or not, . All these factor collectively determines the quality of a product. Everyone thinks about all these basic quality either buy a car or a cup. So, the term "QUALITY" varies person to person. It is not necessary that a rich foreigner purchases a shirt from a shopping mall is of very high quality and a poor Indian buys a "Lungi" from the footpath is not up to the mark. The "lungi" may run a long and The "shirt" may left behind. In that case value or quality of "lungi" higher than "shirt". So, I want to conclude that quality depends upon how it suits to us. There is nothing to consciousness about Indian Particularly.

In my point of view India is not a quality conscious. It depends on income of a family. There are three types of people living in India. Lower class. High class. Middle class. If you take a lower class family, they have to buy a product within their budget. When considering middle class they will buy product within their budget. But they don't giveup quality of the product. High class family will also buy high quality product. I conclude that quality depends on the income of a family.

But here only 19% are high class peoples remaining 81% are middle class and poor peoples. So these 81% peoples they do not have enough money to live in this country. Suppose they want to purchase any quality product means they have to spend more money from his earning. So its not possibles for that 81% of peoples.

Hello everyone, According to me Indians are not "less quality conscious", its all depends as per their status or you can say as per their earnings. Most of the people in India belongs to middle class family and so their earnings are limited, in which they try to manage their expenses as well their savings. So they try to buy things which are more profitable as well as cheaper to them, sometimes less quality conscious according to their need but not always, they try to buy things which are long lasting in which they never compromise with money, but as I said it depends on the need of the person.

They does not buy less quality products intentionally. In India most of the population comes under middle class and poor class families whose income is not much. Most of them cannot even arrange meals twice a day.

I believe that only brands are not provide the quality products rather other products also available in market which have good quality in better price and can affordable. Some of the peoples develop a mentality in mind that branded things are represent his status. Big brands are also provide same products likely to others these are only make you foolish as per as well managed business strategy.

In my opinion Indians are not less quality conscious but due to certain circumstances they forced to purchase those products which are of less quality, due to rise in prices of any product whether its FMCG, CONSUMER DURABLE'S or APPAREL, mainly in food grains they do more compromise. If you see govt participation, here govt is also lacking, bulk of rice, wheat are spoiling in govt warehouses instead of distributing they are keeping with himself or exporting to other countries, difference between the INR and foreign currency leads to rise in cost of quality.

One should think logically and factually about this topic. The quality may not be considered for the food that we eat or something else. It should be a part of our living. Some of them had discussed that the poor cannot afford for quality assured things since it is costlier and they cannot go for it. Its the real fact. But if we are considering as a example say the food we eat, the better the quality, the healthier we become. Ultimately taking considerations of different peoples i.e., I won't like to mention as poor or rich people, rather I will say people with weak financial background definitely see the quantity and not the quality. Hence India is less conscious about the quality.

Hi friends. We can say that quality is directly proportional to the price of the product. For a country like India where per capital income is low so it is not possible for Indian to purchase a high quality product. So on the basis of mass consumption we can say that Indian consumers are users of comparatively low quality products. In the other hand, government policies also plays an important role.

Hello mates, The very fact of being quality conscious, depends upon ones financial status. Means no person will buy a product of inferior quality intentionally. If someone is buying a product of poor quality, then it may be because of that individual's lack of knowledge, or may be that person is obsessed by some particular brand or it may that his financial condition is weak. When it comes to financial condition, even though the person is poor he will try to get best deal within his budget. So one can't say that he is compromising with quality, because that is the best he can afford! The best example of quality consciousness we get to see in our daily life is the scene in a vegetable market. There we can see people fetching and arguing with vendors for good quality in least possible price. So I think, being quality conscious is not just about buying branded items, but it is about getting best deal in ones budget. And Indians do it very well!

India is a developing country and the fact is that all are not alike here. Some are very rich. Some are mediocre. And some are living even below poverty line here. When one go for shopping they all move with their already managed budgets. Some budgets allow to focus on quality some allow focusing on just the quantity. Quality is now a synonym for high price which is beyond the imagination for those who find difficulty to meet their daily requirements. Quality is a feature everybody wants to ensure the good for them and their belongings. But in some cases the pockets don't allow to concentrate on quality.

It would be unfair to say that we Indians compromise on quality on anything and everything that we buy.

Also as stated by many, "with good quality comes an increased price tag" which many are unable to afford, but classifying Indians as being less quality conscious would be unfair as this is the case in many developing countries and in the low income groups of some developed countries also. Also the one of the reasons for us to develop such a lax attitude is because of the sluggishness of consumer grievance cells and consumer courts to provide speedy justice to people affected by low quality products which is quite opposite to the scenario in other nations where a single complaint regarding low quality products can result in a lawsuit being filed against the company.

For some people it is pride of ownership of a typical brand. With sufficient money we can spend it wisely for some valuable product otherwise buy something which is good enough.

We can not make a common conclusion regarding this issue about a country especially like India, which has a large economical diversity. Quality and high price are two sides of a coin. It is difficult to get a quality product with low price. You can say "not quality conscious" when a person with good income, who is not spending his money to get quality products or unaware of quality. We can't say Indians are not quality conscious because here a common man struggles to get fundamental things like food, water, shelter. There are many people living below poverty line. In another aspect, I can say that Indians are quality conscious. Because they always expect a quality & healthy relationship with the people, which you can't find anywhere in these world.

Hi, Yes I think Indians are generally less quality conscious, but not all Indians. This thing depends on a person itself, to which thing he give more priority- to QUANTITY or to QUALITY. Lets take an example of a poor family, what that Indian has to do with quality of food, clothes and shelter. Now take an example of a rich family, that Indian will consider, will stress only to quality, only to brands. All good Indians who are having considerable money prefers quality. I personally prefer quality than quantity. Since our 80% of India's population is in poverty so I can generally conclude that Indians are less quality conscious. That is the reason China sends its less quality products, 3-4th class products to India and 1-2 class products to USA because it knows that everything can be easily sold in Indian Market, be it worse or of best quality. But yes of best quality also. Thank You.

Hey guys, I know that quality comes with price and every class specially low income class can not always afford it, but it doesn't mean that people are less conscious about quality, what restrict them is there pocket. More over due to stiff competition in the market companies offer average quality products at low prices and people can easily go for that and for this reason only they do not bother so much about the quality.

Hi, I totally disagree with point Indians are less quality concern. Because quality of living depends the income of the family and the knowledge of the person. 1st consider the family is having 4 or 5 persons but their income is low. So they are in the situation of managing their needs with limited budget. So they have to sacrifice the expensive things. 2nd the people in rural people does not aware of the branded products. They are not educated that much. So they used to use less quality product. So the quality doesn't depend about the country it's only depends about the money and knowledge of the people.

Hi. Actually India stands second in world population. Among this 80% of this only youth it statics from RBO. So what I am saying quality satisfying the implied needs. Actually quality is compared and it satisfies the customer requirement in sense of aesthetics, reliability, durability, etc. First like to classify the indians in to three category 1) top class 2) middle class 3) low class. Coming back to top class people these fellows will definitely aware of quality then will expect such product. But middle class and low class people they will not such a big thing like quality first thing they open up from the mouth what is the cost of it? I won't say that middle class and low class people will not aware of the quality but they did not expect as much level.

I agree with this tag which given about India but not 100%. In my view only those people who don't have enough income and so, they can't think about quality just because of money problem, are less conscious about quality. In market quality less products are coming just because of more population of those people who has less income and they consumes it at very large scale and also input for quality less product is very low in compare with quality product so producer are spending their money to produce these type of products to get maximum profit. To control this problem government should take some strict decision about product like checking of those products which don't have mark like ISI and etc on product and banned them when they not fulfill requirement for quality.

Hi one and all. According to me India is lack concern about quality of product not only due to lack of money but also due to improper distribution of resources. Both factors work on it. Also there is no guarantee that branded products are always totally safe, just because they have a high price and good packaging. For example- Pesticide was found in Pepsi. Insect in Dairy Milk. There are many complains lodged in the consumer forums against many big companies, who claim to give us the best and pure product but somewhere remain unsuccessful. These questions need to be answered. In short, I think its just the money factor that can make an individual quality or quantity conscious. Its not particularly about Indians, even the people of the richest countries can become "less quality conscious" when their pocket is empty.

I like to say that Indians are not less conscious cause behind that due to prices hike of daily essential things in the market, various types taxes the middle and lower class peoples are unable to bear the expense of that beside that they have to bear the educational fees for his children thats why they do not find the quality product and buys some medium product which has medium or cheap price.

Hi, Quality is "meeting or exceeding customers demands" and this need varies from person to person, But this need of the customer is restricted in India due to the income criteria which is a critical aspect as well as illiteracy, if in a village a better quality product is sold against a lower quality similar product having lesser price its obvious that people go for it without the second thought. Only people of people of higher class go for quality products while the other class manage with lower quality.

A person care about quality when he has enough money, for ex. A rich husband would gift necklace on her wife's birthday, a middle class man would gift a gold ring, whereas a lower class man would just gift a Saree. So I believe that based on income people become more or less quality conscious. But the quality of love is 100% among all categories of Indians, so here I will disagree that Indians are less quality conscious:-).

Hello friends, Regarding this topic, my opinion is Indians are not less quality conscious because of in India the economy does not permit to all to maintain Quality. Besides Quality does not depend on price of the thing but it depends on its behavior. They are forced to choose low price thing (may be considered as low quality by other) after meeting their daily essential commodities as a large portion of people belong to middle class or middle-lower class. In India there is a very good Quality Human Resources which can help to grow up but various problem like politics that also not be utilized properly but I must say that Indian have power to maintain high QUALITY if they revive themselves from the said problem. Thank you all a lot.
