Word of Thanks Questionnaire
A work is never a work of an individual. We owe a sense of gratitude to the intelligence and co-operation of those people who had been so easy to let us understand what we needed from time to time for completion of this exclusive project.

To start any business the success entirely depends on the marketing research done about the particular and the consumer attitude towards the product. Marketing research plays a vital role in a business to make it success. We have tried to put our best effort to complete this task on the basis of skill that we have achieved during our studies in the institute.
