Strike against Microsoft: Rs. 25 Crore Loss Reported

Computer software and hardware businesses remained completely closed in a one-day strike against Microsoft’s alleged business tactics upsetting vendors.

The businesses in Udaipur remained close today. Udaipur Computer Traders Association decided not to sell any pirated software and customers will have to buy licensed version which might cost from 5-25 thousand rupees.

“If customer doesn’t want to buy licensed Microsoft products then they have to go for Linux which is free”, said Pawan Kothari of Udaipur Computer Traders Association.

More than 10 thousand shops across Rajasthan dealing computer peripherals and HW/SW participated in this movement under banner of Computer Trader Association. Rs. 25 Crore Loss has been reported from Rajasthan due to strike.

Traders claimed that Microsoft is affecting market negatively by selling software at Rs. 500 to educational institutions, whereas the same is sold for Rs. 20-25 thousand to general users.

Computer Traders also decided to form a vigilance team to check all traders are following association’s rules. If any customer forces the vendor to install pirated software then legal action will be taken against the customer.

By this, they have also decided to take Rs. 500 as installation charge for computers.
