    Apart from the corporate giants, family business is continued even in unorganized small and micro sectors also because of other reasons. Most of businesses involve trade tricks which are passed on from generation to generation in the family. Since such businesses are not carried out ethically, the outsiders don't know the tricks of the trade. Malpractices like under measurement, adulteration, tax evasion and such other practices are in vogue in most of the businesses in unorganized sector. Certain trades like jewelry business is notorious for cheating of the customers. The reputation and brand name earned by certain trading firms also enables the next generation to continue even if they are incompetent. Even in the doctor's firms (hospitals, nursing homes, clinics etc.), they get their children admitted in a private medical college by paying a hefty donation, so that the family profession can be continued.
    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    Large business or small one, continuing parental business is a good one whether for Indian or out side Indian. The main benefit is the business tactics can easily be followed by the son or daughter. The customers can have trust if the business is run by family. The longevity of business tenure will get extended for further more years. Unemployment problem is getting diminished. In Udupi,Karnataka an aged person doing his business of preparing and selling different special sweets and got a good business in the city and have customers from many places in and around the city. By seeing his venture, his son,well educated, who was working in abroad with a good salary left his job and joined with his father. Similar people are there silently in India.
