untitled updated

Just like music, sports too have no boundaries. It draws people from corners of the world uniting people in the most awesome ways. We all know and appreciate the strong presence of developed nations from USA and Europe in major international sporting events marking their presence with a series of victories.

Developing nations from Africa and Asia too are building champions in international and national events like Commonwealth games, Asian Games, FIFA cup and Olympics. The developing countries are making optimum utilization of available resources to nurture the budding champions gathering global attention with their die-hard attitude and sporting spirit. Though lately, developing nations have embraced sports and the immense growth opportunities it has socially, economically and politically. Moreover, the digital age has shrunk the world bringing sports at every doorstep.  The growing awareness regarding fitness and wider perspective attending to individual interest coupled with support and investment from respective govt. resulted in creating world champions. Moreover, the existing agencies associated with sports are bringing to the limelight the tremendous untapped sporting capital of their respective countries by setting up training facilities, working in tandem with the govt. and sponsors to nurture the potential found in developed as well as underdeveloped regions.

As a result, new faces on international platforms are frequently visible and enabled the holistic development of these nations. With the intervention of national and international agencies and educational authorities, sports potential in developing nations is gradually changing.

India – Ready, Steady, Go…

demonetisation_gsi
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.

Champions keep playing until they get it right

championsThe dictionary meaning of Champion is a person who has surpassed all rivals in a sporting contest or other competition. Rivals are not only the participants but it also constitutes other weak attributes of a champion which she/he has surpassed to rise like a phoenix.

What does it take to become a champion? The secret is so simple and so basic yet is overlooked by most of us, they don’t surrender, they don’t quit. They keep on practicing, same thing with discipline; they look at all their moves – good or bad- and they work consistently to improve their game.

It is an old saying amateur practice until they get it right, professionals practice until they can’t get it wrong. Champions are not blessed with natural talent or physical gifts or the training advantages that separates the best from the rest but they work hardest & smartest, drain out their sweat to earn it.
