Price Changes Effective January 1, 2018

by Lachman Kotak

Last October we made an announcement that

  1. Prices will be revised every January.
  2. Price increases effective from January, would be announced in the preceding October.
  3. Prices would increase by an average of 5 per cent per annum, in Indian rupees.
  4. The maximum price increase in a year in a service would be 7 per cent in Indian rupees.
  5. Changes, if any, in the discounts system applicable on bulk subscriptions would be announced along with price changes.
  6. Price increases do not include service tax or other indirect taxes as these are determined by the government and not by us.

In line with the above, please note the price changes effective January 1, 2018.

# Note: IP-based subscriptions for educational & research institutions are priced 1.5 times the above-listed prices and they get over twice the number of Hits.

@ Note: IP-based subscription of First Source is 5x the above-listed prices.

** Note: Available only to educational and research institutions.

 

We have released a new set of services based on the Consumer Pyramids Household Survey. Two services - Consumer Pyramids and Consumer Pyramids Lite have been discontinued. We will be launching new services that would deliver data that is similar to the contents of the above two services.

All price changes are close to 3 per cent and less than 4 per cent. Only the price of ProwessIQ has been raised by a higher amount, by 6.67 per cent.

The number of Hits per subscription login remains unchanged.

The discounting structure has been changed at the higher end. The maximum marginal discount available now is limited to 60 per cent. Earlier, the maximum marginal discount was 80 per cent. We find discounts that are greater than 60 per cent to be unviable.

In line with the above, please note the changed discount structure w.e.f September 06, 2017.
