            • Entry of Multi-National Companies (MNCs) into the Indian market on a large scale increases the competition for products and services.
            • ‘ Survival of the fittest’ rule forces many weaker and small-scale companies to close down due to non-viability.
            • Big players start buying smaller players through mergers and acquisitions.
            • Removal of subsidy affects profitability and viability of many industries. (Fertiliser industry is one such affected sector where units had to close down or stop products of certain products).
            • Banks and insurance sector came under competitive environment and were compelled to operate viably, at par with the private sector.
            • In general, many industrial units across India faced a destabilization consequent to the economic reforms. Their markets, market shares and profits came under severe pressure and viability became a big question.
