Manufacturers are just looking to their profits.
The dealership model has changed to a great extent in the period that I served the market. Earlier the dealers had cordial relations with the customers; other than business relations, they had a sort of bond which cannot be seen now. Today, it is totally a business- centric relationship. The manufacturers are just looking at their profits, nothing else!
Presently there is nothing that the companies are doing to promote products. Earlier they used to hold technical meets, mason meets, dealers meets. Some aggressive advertising was done in the form of gifts to customers, etc, which is not seen now.
