Disappointing! No discounts for shoppers during Mumbai Shopping Festival 2018

State tourim minister confirmed that the organisers will not get any concessions in the taxes due to financial constraints


Mumbaikars are gearing up for the Mumbai Shopping Festival 2018 which will be the first-of-its-kind where shoppers will get to buy things, enjoy music and relish food.

But shoppers will not be able to enjoy discounts at the shopping festival as the organisers will not be getting a lot of concessions due to which they will not sell things at high discount rates.

The state tourism minister Jaykumar Rawal said they were thinking about offering concessions in taxes but couldn’t do so due to financial constraints.

Rawal added that despite the fewer discounts, the number of outlets will increase as the registration process is still on adding that the festival will also have night bazaars.

Rawal told Hindustan Times,

All the shoppers will have to do is, purchase goods worth ₹500 from a registered outlet and send a text message on the invoice number, shop name, and location, amount and answer to a question displayed at the partner outlet to 56263. Winners will be selected through the computerised random draw and will be announced on January 31.”
