Management Discussion andAnalysis

A. Economy and Business Outlook

The Indian economy grew at a moderate pace through the stimulus package of the Indian Government to counter the global recession.The private sector remained cautious about the new investments resulting in postponement of big projects.

Power Generation is one of the key drivers of the Transformer and distribution industry. As per the latest estimates, the Country is expected to add huge power generation capacity during the next few years. However, the country is also plagued byhigh power shortage during peak period. One of the key reasons of the power shortage is inadequate T&D network. The state utilities are also suffering from T&D losses as high as 40% which has put heavy burden onthem.

The Government through Rural electrification program is striving to increase the distribution reach of the utilities. This will result into growing demand of products of the T&D industry.
