    yes i think its good move not to let ikea enter into india markets as of now still but look at this :- which places and how many you expect ikea stores in india ? maybe just 1 in every metro city for now .

    its like this policy when a tiger kills the jackal and the vulture also feeds on it till the rats and ants aswell so in the long run ikea if makes a structured entry into india will benefit

    well, if ikea needs to be permitted in india then a condition must be made, they should only sell made in India goods. (may be upto 90% :) lets give them some breathing space)

    thats the solution , entry only to A level cities with indian staff and products and sources form indian manufacturer , later on as per the service record can expand to b level centers.

    i think it was IKEA who rejected india in 2005 or before due to the clauses put forward , i might be mistaken just heard this before so said .

    True, but if Ikea comes to India ,it will provide good and cheap furniture to apni janta

    Ikea is very popular in western Europe too. furniture is of very good Quality and easy to assemble

    There are 25 in Holland only.

    Not possible, bangla manush give more cheaper than India. its in our interest to get cheaper from all over the world including india

    IKEA products are good looking, well researched but tiny, especially if one is used to furniture built as per US standards and besides they don't last long and are very bad in durability. I'd rather go to High Point and grab some locally made furniture than get IKEA.
