Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving in the US. The term was created in 2005 by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online.

With over 137 million Internet users in the country, India is witnessing a growth in online activity and this is the first time an industry-wide initiative of this scale is being attempted to offer users across the country an incentive to gain from deals that they can find on the Web on a single day.

“The online shopping industry is already over $1.5 billion and with this initiative we want to reach out and promote online shopping to first-time buyers,” Rajan Anandan, Managing Director and Vice-President Sales and Operations, Google India said.

  1. E-Commerce has become the one of important need for any business or it is another way to handle business easily by providing convenient services to public.
