Innovative Retailing Company

Posted by vishalsinghal on December 7, 2008

Yesterday, I met two people who told me that now any white good or electronics or real estate, textiles or Gold (with other categories adding up slowly), they buy will be from a single company selling all kinds of products (except mobiles) from any brand in India. Why? This company not only sells you any of these at far lower price then the market price, but also gives it’s customers cash backs (over a few years) to the tune of some times even double the amount of actual purchase price for any of the products purchased. It certainly is an innovative concept as where else will anybody buy a product at less then MRP and still earn cash backs over and above the discount.

What is the catch? Only catch is that anybody who want’s to buy from that company needs to pay a one time membership fee of Rs.2600. I definitely plan to join this when and if I plan to buy something off these categories of products.

India Health Card Launched

Posted by vishalsinghal on December 1, 2008

I am a member of www.couchsurfing.com a website for travel lovers. I have travelled far and wide and hosted or entertained a lot of tourists too from around the world. Similarly, I see lot of Indian staying abroad travelling around the world and to India quiet often. All’s well that ends well. But, sometimes even the NRI (Non Resident Indians) get frustated in India when they have to suffer at the hands of authorities paying for their bills in medical emergencies.

For this reason, some Indian in USA got together and launched the first ever India Health Card (IHC) in India for use by Indians staying abroad. Beauty of thisĀ  card is that it can be bought from the internet and loaded from the internet too. As of now, it can be used by Indians and NRIs only but I hope this becomes valid for foreigners travelling in India too who face more problems in such situations.
