Chandranna Malls which are mini super bazars are opening around the state with around 300 types of commodities available.The corporate companies Reliance and Future Group were permitted to open the retail outlets in the villages. Earlier, it was proposed to name after NTR to the outlets. AP Minister Pattipati Pulla Rao said it is being renamed after Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
Though the outlets will be opened in villages to sell essential commodities 20 percent less than market prices, leaders said the mall culture will destroy rural economy as many small grocery store owners will be forced to shut their shops unable to face the tough competition from corporate bodies.
All products including hand looms , home appliances , electrical and construction goods will be made available in the village malls which will also become purchase centers for farmers produce.
