Government plans to build a clean and green nation

At the outset, the Union Budget 2019 is an incremental and positive one focusing on all-round development of the Indian economy. The primary focus has been towards reversing the weakening growth, boosting domestic and foreign investments, rapid infrastructure building and also at creating a conducive business environment for start-ups and entrepreneurship.

In particular, the government”s plan to build a supportive ecosystem for manufacturing green energy technologies as well as initiatives for clean water, we believe, is a step taken in the right direction to create and build a clean and green nation.

Further, with India set to become a $3 trillion economy this year, we believe the government has undertaken positive steps and reforms to promote growth and development of the economy, in the years to come.
