Operation and Future Prospects

India has maintained a growth rate of around 7% (RBI estimates). India is one of the fastest growing among major economies of the world. The NDA Government is moving forward with "Vikas" as its main agenda . The initial problems with Demonetization & GST implementation are gradually reducing with lot of simplification on GST implementation. The organized sector is performing better on the implementation of G S T. However the unorganized sector has been very badly hit by its implementation and shall take time to recover. Interest rates are more or less stable with an upward bias. Economy may have taken some hit becauseof global rise in crude oil prices and other national and international economic and political factors. The falling consu mption is a cause of concern for the economy. Below average monsoon mayalso a negative factor for Economy. Decrease in domestic consumption is a cause of concern to growth. However, we have seen continued investments by the Mutual Funds in the Capital Markets. The National elections have seen a strong and decisive mandate in favour of BJP lead NDA. Mr. Narendra Modi as Prime Minister for the second term shall focus on expediting his agenda. It is expected of him to tackle the issues in hand by creating policies to leave hig her disposable income in the hands of lower and middle income bracket, to aggressively fight against terrorism, to boost global trade in favourofthe country with the geopolitical status of the country getting stronger over time. Defense and Infrastructure sector is likely to get big boost. Steps to increase domestic consumption should be an priority. RBI has projected a growth rate of 72% in the economy in the current year. Positive actions by the Govt, on various fronts may result in good sentiments and the foreign investors will continue invest in Indian stocks. The "Nifty & Sensex" are at life time high levels. We expect the markets to move positively butshall remain volatile and consolidate in times to come. Financial Results
