How old is MLM in India and what competition we are going to face?
Direct selling officially started in India in the year 1996 when an International consumer electronics brand called Corum International announce its foray into network marketing and started pre registering distributors for the forth coming business, but somehow company got stuck into legal permissions in India, and whole planned collapsed. In the meanwhile Modicare also came up with its direct selling and all Corum pre register distributors jumped in Modicare, and thus officially Modicare becomes the first Indian company who introduce network marketing in India.
