Situated in the western part of Assam, Silchar famous for its dense forests is experiencing a steady growth rate in the IT sector. Most of the channel partners seem to be in high spirits regarding the future of IT business here.

Speaking to itVARnews, Proprietor, Advantage Computers, Ravindra Gulgulia, said, “The city of Silchar is experiencing an annual growth rate of 40 percent. Presently, the sale of laptops is high in the market. We sell around 10-15 computers in a month whereas the number of laptops is more than 40-50. The sale is increasing due to the opening of various educational institutes in the region.�

The current scenario depicts that people are now more aware of the new technology and IT products than they were five years back. Moreover, there is consistency in the growth rate. The main target segment in the region is end user as there is no corporates, national and regional distributors in the region.

According to the distributor

s and dealers in the region, earlier the consumers in the city preferred assembled PCs but now they are shifting to the branded systems. Commenting on this, Proprietor, Lynx technology, Saikaet Dey, stated, “There are a few brands that are doing well in the market like HP, Compaq, Acer, and HCL. However, with the up- gradation in the technology the demand for certain brands has increased. As of now, HP is enjoying a good position in the market�.

The demand for lifestyle products like pen drives, mp3, mp4 players and wireless mouse, accessories etc, is also on the rise, as these products are being accepted by youth. The demand for pen drives has reached a very high position and this will further shoot up with more and more people coming forward to buy this product.�

As far as services are concerned, Director, Padma Infotech, Gautam Rai, said, “Service is the major issue here. Most of the eminent brands do not have their authorised service centers in Silchar.

Acer is the only brand, which is providing all kind of services to our customers. Another issue in the market is related to less stock in the market.�
