There will not be any impact on Chinese manufacturer or to Chinese Economy. Those Diwali crackers, toys and Chinese lights will still come into India, repacked in Delhi with a “Made in India” label will be sold at double the price.
Many emotional fools who keep their patriotism on their sleeves will buy higher priced goods feeling proud that they are helping Indian Industry while the Delhi based trader who has repacked the goods will be laughing to the bank and chanting, “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”. His counterpart in China will also be laughing to the bank reflecting that “Indians are funny people :-)”
If you want to hurt Chinese through trade, how about asking your Government to ban imports?
Don't fall in to the trap of misplaced patriotism and nationalism. These traps are used by every government to divert attention from its failures.
很多情绪化的爱国主义傻子会购买更高价格的东西，因为他们在帮助印度工业，而重新包装商品的德里商人会嘲笑银行，高喊“Bharat Mata Ki Jai”（≈印度胜利的意思），中国同行也会嘲笑银行，说印度人真有趣。

First it will surly work in favor of Indian in terms Indian economic and will be very bad for Chinese economy
We may not be able to eliminate completely but slowly we can start and to avoid using china products
This can save lot of money of Indians and money will remain in India
Simply telling that “It wont work” will not be good for us, we must have to put an efforts to make sure china understand what we meant ?

For a short time Indians and Indian Markets will face difficulties in both prices and sells respectively. Chinese Products are cheaper than Indian Products so Indian people are inclined towards them. But later on when they will become comfortable with Indian they will feel good with the quality of the products.

A Single Indian? Nothing will happen to China.
The average Indian makes $5,350 every year in PPP dollars.
China makes $52.26 billion from Indian markets alone.
Even if I assume that you were buying only Chinese products so far, the impact to them would be negligible.
A lot can happen to you because of avoiding Chinese products:
For instance, you can no longer use a mobile phone. Since you can not use a phone, there goes WhatsApp and Facebook that you spend all your work day on.
Wait, you can not get to work. You can not take a car. Cars have Made in China electronics. I don’t think you will be going to work because I am pretty sure that the bus though Made in India, uses some component which is Made in China.
You get the gist I hope, you are never going to make it to work.
Similarly, the shirt you are wearing might use yarn that is made on Chinese yarn machine.
So you don’t have a job, and are going around in Khadi in the name of misplaced nationalism? I think Baba Ramdev is hiring :)
