The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) on Wednesday said that it will spearhead a movement to boycott goods imported from China during the upcoming festive season in India.

It said that it has made an elaborate strategy to ensure 'Made in India' goods are available across the country in a substantial quantity.

The CAIT, in a message, advised traders to ensure that Indian goods related to each festival be made available in abundance during forthcoming season which begins from Rakhi on August 3 and goes up to November 25.

During this season, several festivals including Rakhi, Janmashtami, Ganeshotsav, Navratri, Durga Puja, Dhanteras, Diwali, Bhaiya Dooj, Chhath and Tulsi Vivah among others will be celebrated.

CAIT is said to be preparing an exhaustive list of the items used in each of these festival, that are to be made available in large quantities.

As per CAIT, last year during the festival season, Chinese goods worth Rs 20,000 crore were sold in India.
