• INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS

The projected GDP outlook for 2021-22 is 8% without factoring the global COVID-19 impact. The disruption wrecked by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic put the global economy in recovery mode. Multiple vaccine approvals and the launch of vaccination in many countries raised hopes of an eventual end to the pandemic. Despite the high and rising human toll caused by the novel virus, economic activity remained subdued in 2020 as the global economy contracted by 3.3 per cent. Economies adapted to new ways of working after lockdowns were eased in the second half of the year. With the passage of time, businesses have adapted to subdued contact-intensive operations.

To prevent an economic collapse similar to last years most of the lockdown measures are now more targeted. For example, the state of Maharashtra allows continued production from companies that produce essential goods and services, have in-house accommodations or need to fulfil export obligations. This means that people working in these factories continue to receive income, and essential goods and services are still supplied locally and internationally. Economic data confirms that the impact on the manufacturing industry remains small.

The Governments huge spending on healthcare and infrastructure sectors, RBIs liquidity measures and the massive vaccination drive helped economic recovery in the second half of FY 2020-21. As per the second advance estimates of National Income by the Governments National Statistics Office (NSO), real GDP contraction is estimated around 8 per cent mainly on account of significant growth of subsidies.

At Company level, going forward, it is our conviction that the transparent policies along with the stringent statutory compliances will propel the organized sector towards growth.The traditionally fundamentally strong character of the Indian economy would continue to operate in the future.
