A. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE, GLOBAL AND INDIAN ECONOMY DEVELOPMENTS

The Indian infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy for economic growth and is pivotal in shaping the future of a country. Growing urbanization, demand for energy and financing needs for sustainable living pose a challenge for the infrastructural setup in the country and it requires intense focus from the government for introducing policies that would ensure time-bound formation of world-class infrastructure in the country.

The infrastructure sector is said to play a crucialrole in fulfilling Government of Indias vision of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat. In the latest Union Budget, the Government of India has announced significant allocations towards infrastructure development.

B. OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS:

There is the opportunity for the domestic industry to become more organized, with the creation of more large firms through organic growth and acquisitions. This would improve overall construction quality. Strong population growth and a growing economy is fueling demand for infrastructure.

Key parameters which are favorable for the industry are as under:

I. Higher government spending: To support the economy, Government has front-loaded its expenditure in FY23 and maintained an expansionary fiscal budget target.

II. Prudent monetary support: The RBI aims at maintaining an accommodative stance and providing ample liquidity support to help the economy recover faster.

III. Lower current account deficit: Helped by lower import growth and stable exports growth, Indias current account deficit has narrowed significantly.

The Government of India is expected to invest heavily in the infrastructure sector, mainly highways, renewable energy and urban transport. Increasing budget allocations, Smart City Mission, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, new metro rail policy, Housing for all and are expected to contribute significantly to drive infrastructure growth in India.

As such there is no major threat identified which will endanger the existence of the Company.

However, during the end of the financial year 2022-23, with increased focus on urbanization, the market is likely to witness a strong growth in coming years. Slow growth was recorded albeit temporarily after a slowdown in India economic growth in the past few years. COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected all theindustry segments and our Company is no exception. It is a challenge to sustain in the current market scenario.
