In a country where 95% of the population lives in malaria prone areas, only 44% households use a mosquito repellent solution. Good knight Fast Card    will make ‘effective protection from mosquitoes’ accessible to millions of Indian homes that do not use any solution currently.

 

Godrej   is   a  dominant   leader  in   the   ~3600   Cr.   household   insecticide   market,   with   brands   like

Good knight & HIT leading the market across all the major formats - Coils, Liquid Vaporizer and Aerosols.

With nearly 30 years of expertise in the category, Good knight has introduced  Good knight Fast Card

- a first of its kind mosquito repellant format in the country, which will appeal to the consumers due to its instant effect, ease of use and an attractive price.

 

The highlight of Good knight Fast Card TM  is that it burns for just three minutes but is effective against mosquitoes for nearly four hours. It consumes no electricity and is easy to use, which makes it different from all other repellents in the market. The product has been priced at ` 10 for a booklet of 10 cards, which means

` 1 per card.

 

Announcing the launch of Good knight Fast Card TM, Nisaba Godrej, Executive Director, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd. said, “56 per cent of the population in our country does not use mosquito repellents. We felt that there is a need for a solution that is effective, easy to use, and at a price point that is attractive to the masses. Simple, innovative and economical, this format promises to change the way Indians look at mosquito repellants. All one needs to do here is fold light, and blow out for instant protection.”
