The ongoing boycott announced by the Punjab association of Computer traders(PACT) against Microsoft, is expected to be over in next 2-3 months as both the parties have mutually agreed to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to resolve the deadlock.


On October 22, three senior Microsoft officers flew down to Ludhiana to meet newly formed PACT team to address their issues and grievances, regarding the boycott.

Without divulging the core points discussed at the meet, PACT member Puneet Dhir said, "The outcome of the meet with Microsoft team was very positive, as we have been able to put forward all the Punjab traders issues related to the Microsoft. Our association is agreed upon to sign up an MoU with Microsoft and will be submitting our list of demands or grievances to Microsoft in next couple of days. Post the signing of MoU, our association will take a final call on ending the Boycott. However, for the time being we will continue with our stand."

Dhir added, "As we know Microsoft wants to set its ground before the launch of Windows 8, therefore, they were very positive to resolve the issues at the earliest. The company also showcased the glimpse of windows 8 at the meet to the partners, which was earlier canceled in Chandigarh."
