Indian Economy and Industry Overview

India continues to witness economic reforms in terms of tax regime post introduction of new corporate tax rates and subsequent amendments thereof. This tax regime, being very favorable, is expected to result in improvement bottom line apart from the benefits seen from GST which has translated in logistics and faster movements of goods on one side and indirect tax reforms on the other side. The consolidation of global economy continued during the Financial Year 2019-20 and the global economy ended with a lower benchmark with fears of revival of ensuing trade war between the U.S. and China. In spite of global turbulence, the financial year concluded on a reasonable footing but with an overall negative impact on the industry in varied ways. The investors confidence in this volatile environment was reflected by being bullish and taking an advantage of the correction phase of capital markets during the year under review. And thus, the business growth though subdued is likely to experience good flows in the ensuing times. Infrastructure, high end architectures coupled with real estate development is a must for maintaining such sustained growth and hence is on the highest priority of the Government making it to be the focal point for our economy. Increasing per Capita income resulting due to all round economic high per capita spending affects the sale and off take of our products and we hopefully foresee a bright future in the coming times. The Attack of Covid19 in the country witnessed during the year instilled fear amongst people and its near and subsequent impact needs to be seen as is very uncertain. A vaccine once found will help negate the Covid19 fear and impact and revive Indian economy which will.

Economic Overview

As we write this we enter the third year of the ruling BJP out of its renewed term of 5 years. We believe the government will continue to take very bold and positive steps which shall accelerate the economic growth to higher levels and shall improve ease of doing business and boost the economy. The Indian Economy had turned around dramatically with the real GDP growth rate of 7%, making India one of the fastest growing large economies in the world, but everything got derailed due to the impact of Covid-19 and halted the GDP growth. The World still sees India as a promising economy and expects it to bounce back as soon as the impact of Covid-19 starts fading. The growth in the next financial year is expected to be subdued due to Covid19 impact with predictions for a recovery in the FY21-22 where we could see our early glory returning. The policies of the Narendra Modi Government to transform India through "MAKE IN INDIA" and "AATMANIRBHAR INDIA" initiatives will further yield results with the country emerging as the business hotspot and Foreign Investment destination. We see ourselves as well placed and prepared to seize this opportunity as and when it arises for the growth of our company.

Industry Structure and Development

Real Estate sector and consumer confidence witnessed a complete turnaround with signs of economic stabilization and moderate growth in global economic performance. Property markets in India began to exhibit signs of revival during this time with the return of liquidity in the real estate sector and firm prices in the recent months, cash flows of realty players improved resulting in renewed construction of stalled projects and a few new launches as well. Clearly we believe that we are entering and exciting new phase of development. We are fully geared to take advantage of the buoyant real estate demand which will generate a huge demand for the companys products.

Emerging out of the world economic crisis with only minor bruises, the industry is poised to enter a growth phase and is on the threshold of a major transformation. In terms of demand, Marble, Granite, Tiles & Stones and quartz slab Industry is fortunately placed and this should spur its growth.
