Meet local repairer Ahmad. He identifies himself as a Television repairer.
It’s a good way to sustain life.
Started with a Radio system and black and white T.V. sets. Now we repair all types of T.V. s. ( LCD, LED, Plasma ).
Not everyone can buy a new one; people spend money on new things and expect it to work for at least four years.
Earlier the T.V. sets used to work for 10-15 years, nowadays they work for only 1-2 years. These products are not of good quality now and have cheap parts; during the production of these T.V. sets, the components used are not good, and thus it breaks down in a short period.
We usually sell it per kg to the Kabadiwalla’s (waste collector), who come and take the parts.
I don’t think it will survive in the future; who will get things repaired. For instance- if the display of a 40-inch TV breaks, then it will cost around 20000 INR – 25000 INR alone for the display, so who will get it repaired they will throw it and buy a new one.
