What are your memories of playing as a child? Some of us will remember hide and seek, house tag and red rover. Others may recall arguing about rules in kickball or stick ball or taking turns at jump rope, or creating imaginary worlds with our dolls, building forts, putting on plays, or dressing-up.

But what about children of this generation? Do they have opportunities for play the same as we had? Most likely…. Not & why so?
Because, play time is in short supply for children these days due to so much work pressure & competition in their mind.

Studies says lack of play affects emotional development, leading to the rise of anxiety, depression, and problems of attention and self-control.  When kids get home, their days include more sitting around playing games and watching television. This has led to increased health problems.

It is an alarming situation, kids suffer from chronic disorders; innocence and sweet naughtiness is taken away by heavy eye glasses, fatigue, obesity, asthma, diabetes, weak immune system.

Governments are increasingly acknowledging the need for social policy that supports the development of young children. The Department of Education has come up with policies that offer opportunities which enable all students in Years 1-10 to participate in a minimum of two hours of physical activity each week during the school day. Schools are also encouraged to provide opportunities for students to be physically active at other times.

In fact, we have discovered through different inquiry portal we receive inquiries from schools, pre-nursery schools for our items that involves outdoor games. Consensual activities by sports manufacturers and sports development companies to produce games and activity drills that assist children of all to participate in sports, enjoy it and learn the most important lesson of life i.e. ‘Sportsmanship’.

Now a days there are number of private companies who have come up with initiatives where they not only provide the best sports infrastructure to encourage sports education among the upcoming generation but also provide systematic physical education programs by partnering professional companies with specialization in these fields.

Garg Sports International is also one of those companies who associated with many such institutions, organisations that work in this sector. It provides best of the best sports equipment’s.


Is India truly a global sporting power today?

Indian sportsmanOver the years, sports is one category which has witnessed phenomenal reformation, in terms of talent acquisition, training, awareness of the general public and their participation.

We all know sports inevitable, but training to all was not available due to unaffordability due to many good talents was capped.

In India, gone are the days when different sports were mainly played for recreational purpose or to satisfy the fitness demands. Today, talent is sifted from childhood forward and most talented rise into specializing training.

Today, parents encourage their children to play games and earn name and fame for themselves. With the growing demand for all the sports, the need to have athletic body has also gained importance. To take Indian Sports to new heights, the task of governing and promoting them in India have fallen on a number of Indian sports associations. Sports organizations like the Indian Olympic Association and Sports Authority of India are working towards raising the standard of Indian sports through various talent promotion programs.

Initiatives such as Indian Premier League (Cricket), Hockey India League, Indian Badminton League, Pro Kabaddi League, and Indian Super League (Football) are indeed changing the face and the identity of Indian sports. Sports in India have a tremendous potential for expansion in the existing huge market.

The Department of Education’s Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting policy have made a minimum two hours of physical education or activity per week as mandatory for each student. This enables our school going kids undergo physical activity and sportsmanship, which is another beautiful code of morality and works to win every practice race of life.

The sporting goods industry in India has been in existence for more than a century, earlier it managed to grow due to a skilled workforce, but now in nexus with technology, sports industry is flourishing.

All in all, sports industry has huge potential with growing middle class and their expenditure capacity.

India – Ready, Steady, Go…

Hitherto, India was fighting with evils like corruption, terrorism, inflation, job opportunities etcetra, etcetra.. Never ending list of challenges and tackling of all this was uphill struggle.

8th November 2016 when USA was busy following initial stirrings of presidential election our very own, Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi appeared on the TV screen announcing his master stroke – Demonetization. All that was yearned and earned, stored beneath the drawer in that muddy box, wrapped in newspapers – treasure of 500 & 1000 rupee banned, in a bid to tackle evils.

Money hoarders in India are now left with two options announce your treasure, pay the taxes like a good citizen or let the money die its ill fate. Soon after the announcement, cash rich society turned cashless and many businesses faced slump and shut down, due to capital missing en route from client to vendors or vice versa.

But there were many such businesses, where show kept going due to fair books and we are proud to announce Garg Sports International (GSI) is one of them. Garg Sports International supports demonetization and congratulates Prime Minister Narendra Modi to announce which was most needed by people of India.

With demonetization our banks will be rich enough to offer cheap credits, government will be rich enough to spend more on health, education, infrastructure, etc raising standards of social security, cheap credit will boost more trade and more employment, cash in stash will be more in use, henceforth demonetization can do wonders for our country.

We cannot escape from the fact that GSI has many unorganized sectors to coordinate with, still second generation of the family business found way long time back, integrated systems that has made majority of its transactions with soft money.

We are enjoying fruits of righteousness and passing the same to our clients without failure quality and timely delivery of goods.

GSP is important for European Shipments

gsp-1Oftentimes companies find importing is burden some and extra levied cost with stress. At GSI, we understand the trouble of our client and make our system accessible and transparent for each of our client at each stage of the order processing.

Awareness is inevitable to extract profit and sustain a good business, we ensures at GSI that importing goods for our client becomes profitable and competitive advantage.

Through this journal we would like to aware our European clients about GSP & its benefits.

What is GSP?

The Generalized System of Preferences (known as GSP for short) is a scheme whereby a wide range of industrial and agricultural products originating in certain developing countries are given preferential access to the markets of the European Union.

Preferential treatment is given in the form of reduced or zero rates of customs duties.

The GSP scheme is specifically designed to benefit certain developing countries and integrate them into the world economy.

How do goods qualify as originating products?

The concept of “originating product” forms the basis upon which preferential access is granted to products entering the EU under GSP. Products are considered as originating in two ways:

  • Products wholly obtained in a GSP country
  • Products considered to be originating in a GSP country when the raw materials used are sufficiently worked or processed

Next time onwards please request for your GSP certificate with shipment.

Supplier Diversity & Why it is important?

supplierdiversitybannerSupplier diversity is one of the procurement trends that is picking up well in International market and quite quickly adopted by few of the successful established companies. In India, Garg Sports International has in placed this system in its procurement and production strategies. Thumb rule of Supplier diversity is system cannot be dependent on homogeneous teams so procurement was allowed from pool of vendors which is rich in diverse background, ethnicity and experience

Garg Sports International found this system quite effective in order to offer a sustainable and uninterrupted production of goods and also meeting client’s expectation with time constraint, cost management and quality compliance.

Initially instead of running our own set up for production, we had to develop our pool of vendors and relying on them for production has produced lot of hitches as time management and quality control was difficult to manage. But later as pool of vendor grew and vendors were educated with quality of the item, many things started improving.

There are many false stigmas attached to this business tool but if implemented well and constantly review at each stage of development with bottlenecks tackled during these stages itself then surely manufacturing system breathes. Diversity is felt in our team & skilled workforce; it has become a management elixir due to which production is not halt anytime round the year.

GSI journey began as a quality carom board manufacturer, and later it developed set up for plastic blow & injection molding goods, stitching of goods and metal fabrication.

GSI is the leading exporter of physical education equipment, agility & soccer training equipment and goal posts due to its evolving structure and simple philosophies.
