The Taste of India Primary datas are those which are gathered specially for the project at hand, directly e.g. through questionnaires & interviews. Primary data sources include company salesman, buyers, trade associations executives and other businessman and even competitors.
TOOLS OF DATA COLLECTION: Decide Research Methods For Collecting Data: If it is for that the secondary data cannot be of much use, collection of primary data become necessary. Three widely used methods of gathering primary data are sample observation . EXPERIMENTATION Survey method- in this method , information gathered directly from individual respondents, either through personnel interviews or through mail quesnnaires or telephone interviews.

The Taste of India This method involves carrying out a small trial solution to a problem,while at the same time, attempting to control all factors relavent to the problem. The main assumption here is that the test conditions are essentially the same as those that will be encountered later when conclusions derived from the experiment are applied to a broader marketing area. SECONDRAY DATA These are ganerally published sources ,which have been collected orignially for some other purpose . Source are internal company records , government publication , reports and publicaton, reports and journals,trade ,professionals and business associations publications and reports.

The Taste of India Sampling Technique: Non Probability Sampling Technique ( A Non Probability Sampling Technique Is That In Which Each Element In The Population Does Not Have An Equal Chance Of Getting Selected.) Sample unit: people who buy amul milk available in retail shops,superstores etc Sample size : 100 respondents (age ranging 15 yrs above) Method: direct interview through questionnaire and observation. Area of survey: sevalia, thasra, tharmal Timing of survey : 7:00 am to 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm Field Work Method Used For Data Collection: Questionnaire was prepared keeping the objective of research in mind. Questions were asked to respondents as regards to there willingness to buy amul milk and remark in what extend we can fulfiill their wants. The help of questionnaires conducted direct interviews, in order to get accurate information. In order to correct information i had to approach consumers ranging from 15 years and above. It is really a heroic task to understand consumer behavior is a physical activity as well as decision process individual engaged in when evaluating, acquiring ,using and disposing goods and services. In the field i am taking sample of amul milk pouch, so that some is not aware of amul milk so i can explain the amul milk and give them for test then get feedback.
