1.1 Background of the Study

There was couple of principles at work from the first decade of twentieth century. From them the first focused on the economics of marketing by using branding in order to establish the prestige and authority of a business to deliver brand's value proposition to the consumers. Moreover, marketing has attempted to control and retain the consumers instead of embracing them, but this process is now breaking down as a consequence of failure in getting to know the factors that control an individual behavior in postmodern consumption (Arena, 2009, 12).

This trend mainly started with developed nations like USA, UK, Germany, and as the other countries are getting developed, this trend has been seen there also, and India is one of those developing countries, so the same trend has been noticed there also.

1.5 Conceptual and Theoretical Framework

In complex and experience product categories, the relationship between perceived and objective quality is especially affected by the information asymmetry between the firms and customers (Rindova et al. 2005, p. 123). Having reviewed the rationale for the study of consumer attitude, it has been seen that there are several factors which affect consumer ...
