The industry sources said that the re-routing of Aviance through the retail end will not be done in one shot. There will be a logical plans that will be executed.

The products from the lower price points will be the first to be redirected to the retail outlets. Subsequently, the process will be applied across the whole category in a slow and deliberate manner.

In the calendar year 2000, Aviance has reported a net loss of Rs 12.24 crore as against a loss of Rs 6.89 crore in 1999.
