According to him, Bihar is an important market for their products. Everything has changed a lot in Bihar. Now there are better roads, electricity and other infrastructure required for setting up an industry. The best thing is that law and order of Bihar has taken a very positive turn. If they set up their unit in Bihar they would save a huge amount which goes in transportation and in a way contribute to his native state.

People still prefer to see the texture before buying. Also, products like socks, gym vests and leggings are available at a lower rate in market. But seeing the trend of online shopping, they are planning to sell their products online and have also started working on it and would be starting their online sales in April 2016.
