ValueNotes Connect – November 2013

ValueNotes Connect
We are happy to share with you this month’s issue of ValueNotes Connect.

India is gearing up for the 2014 elections, and opinions on the same are doing the rounds. Who’s going to come to power? Who isn’t? We don’t know yet, but with all the opinion polls being conducted, we can definitely make an informed guess. Or can we?

With the general opinion on opinion polls divided, (some want them banned, some call them unscientific, and others call them biased) a rational explanation about the limitations of polls, or their different methodologies or impact of sampling is rarely offered. Arun Jethmalani does exactly that in his blog about opinion polls, market research and the Indian elections.

As we’re preparing for another year, Namita Adavi blogs about an upcoming sector for 2014 that players should think about investing in – the warehousing sector. The Goods and Services Tax, or GST, is expected to be rolled out post the general elections, which means, preparations for the change must start now. After all, forewarned is forearmed. You also may be interested in reading the first of a series of short industry reports by ValueNotes, (a quick-access industry research tool), titled Warehousing Industry in India, 2013-17.

We hope you enjoy reading our newsletter, and as always, we look forward to your comments.

Warm regards.

Of opinion polls, market research and Indian elections
– by Arun Jethmalani
Of opinion polls, market research and Indian elections Elections are back, and so are opinion polls. As usual, this has caused much acrimonious debate – not only on the results, but on the efficacy of opinion polls themselves. Some call them biased, some unscientific, and some even call for a ban on them. Unfortunately, amidst all this cacophony, we rarely hear rational explanations about the limitations of polls, or their different methodologies or impact of sampling. The answer is not to ban opinion polls, as that will only lead to even more dubious informal polling.

How the Goods and Service Tax (GST) will revolutionize warehousing in India
– by Namita Adavi
How the Goods and Service Tax (GST) will revolutionize warehousing in India The demand for warehousing in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18% in the next 5 years – thanks to the incoming investment in the retail sector and increasing import-export activity in India. Add to this, the introduction of the GST, which will represent a boom in various industries including warehousing. Now is a good time for players to invest in warehousing because they have an opportunity to increase profitability with access to markets or regions that were previously unviable.
