As per a report by Deloitte, The Indian consumer durables market is expected to grow greatly. This can be attributed to the growing and prosperous middle as well as the upper middle class of the country which translates to increased purchasing power. Largely, the consumer durables are divided into three categories:  electronics, brown goods, and white goods. Brown goods include kitchenware such as oven, mixer grinder, ceiling fan and cooking related appliances while white goods include stuff such as fridge, air conditioners, washing machines, audio systems and so on. After electronics, these are the items you should keep an eye on in the festive sales.

​You can buy any item this festive season, be it a TV or AC. These expensive items need to be secured. To achieve this, it is a great idea to buy home insurance which covers all household ​contents instead of buying insurance for each item separately. So, without any further ado, let the shopping begin!
