Amazon Great Indian Festival sale started on October 1, a day ahead of the other ecommerce majors, and according to the eretailer, while day 1 was massive, it was roundly beaten by the growth in numbers logged on day 2 – Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti on October 2, which was also a Sunday. This it managed to do despite the rest of the competition getting in on the act from October 2. At the moment, all eretailers have their own Diwali sales going on, including Snapdeal Unbox sale, and Flipkart Big Billion Days sale as well as ShopClues Challenge. These portals too are reporting humongous sales growth figures and the reasons behind it are the huge discounts on offer. However, this has led to protest from the brick and mortar retailers who say that the portals are violating govt order not to offer deep discounts – they are protesting as their sales will get affected due to the ecommerce sales. However, no reaction from the authorities has been forthcoming at the moment. Check out the major deals on Amazon Great Indian Festival sale here.
