It’s true that Indori’s find it difficult to buy anything without bargaining for it. However, that technique is no longer useful because of the advent of mall culture and online shopping where there is no scope for bargaining. So here are a few beloved phrases that people use while bargaining which may become irrelevant in the near future.

4. Sasta karoge to aur le jayenge:

5. Itne me to Ambani bhi nhi khareed sakta:

6. 4 saal se yahi se khareed rahe hai:

7. Ni chiye:
The ultimate weapon- pretending to walk away until the seller runs after you to accept the product at your own price!
