Ahead of Diwali, shopkeeper selling lights in Guwahati claimed that Chinese lights business have defused this year as customers are opting for 'Made in India.' Supply of Chinese lights have been halted this year, therefore Indian manufacturers have become self-reliant. This has also led to increase in prices of India-made lights. One of the local shopkeepers said, "There has been no supply of Chinese lights. Shopkeepers have stocked up India-made lights, so prices have gone up."
