Meet local repairer Vinod. He identifies himself as an electrician and has close to 10 years of experience in dealing with different kinds of electrical equipment. He lives in New Delhi and owns an electrical shop in Bhogal, New Delhi.
I learnt from a person who has now left this business of repair. Currently, here at my shop, I teach my employees.
For those who don’t have much money to purchase, repairing is the best way to sustain.
We have repaired 40-50-year-old fans, we can repair other old objects as well.
Ball-bearing needed to be changed
Since I have been working, I have been busy. People get various things repaired.
Haven’t given a thought to this; when the time comes, I will think over this. For now, we have to repair to earn a livelihood.
Chandni Chowk, Red Fort area in New delhi. You’ll get almost all spares there; it’s India’s largest market.
I would say old is gold; it’s easier to repair old electronics. Though the new electronics have different build and we haven’t studied about them, so we won’t fix them or take it, what we can’t repair we don’t, there is no point thinking about this.
No, absolutely not, we aren’t worried about that. In India, repairing is all over. Repairing won’t stop in India.
We tell the customers that our shop won’t be able to repair their device as we don’t have much knowledge. There will be other repairers who might do it.
