Hereby, we at Shradha Infraprojects Limited [Formerly known as Shradha Infraprojects (Nagpur) Limited] ("SHRADHA") present our report for the financial year 2018-19.


As the global financial crisis slows down, the world economy has strengthened. The improved global economic situation provides an opportunity for countries to focus policies towards longer term issues such as low carbon economic growth, reducing inequalities, economic diversification and eliminating deep rooted barriers that hinder development. International markets have witnessed noticeable volatility, triggered by geo-political events, significant movements in currency and commodities, protectionist policies including tariff barriers.


While the global economy is battling with strong headwinds, Indias economy is witnessing a solid development and is on its way to emerging as one of the worlds fastest growing economies and is anticipated to be one of the worlds three economic powers over the next 10-15 years, supported by its strong democracy and alliances. The Indian Government focus on elevating the rural economy and infrastructure creation and improving the quality of education of the country. Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, has launched the "MAKE IN INDIA" campaign to facilitate investment, promote innovation, enhance skill development, safeguard intellectual property & build best in class manufacturing infrastructure.

with an aim to boost the entrepreneurship in India, not only in manufacturing sector, but also in other sectors of the Indian economy, to increase the purchasing power of an average Indian consumer, thus further boosting demand, and thus stimulating growth, in addition to benefiting investors.

Numerous foreign companies are setting up their facilities in India on account of various government initiatives like "Make in India and Digital India."


Infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy and is considered as the second largest sector after agriculture and is slated to grow at 30% over the next decade.

This sector is highly responsible for driving overall growth and development of a nation, especially in an emerging one like India. Creation of infrastructure is vital for Indias economic development as well as in generating enormous employment opportunities in the country for future growth; impetus to several sub-sectors of manufacturing. Indias infrastructure spending is estimated to be Rs. 50 lakh crore in the next four years in order to improve its economic growth; connect and integrate the nation with a network of roads, airports, railways, ports and inland waterways; and to provide good quality services. The Government in its budget for FY 2019 has estimated budgetary expenditure on infrastructure of Rs. 5.97 trillion.

The growth of this sector is well complemented by the growth of the corporate environment and the demand for office space as well as urban and semi-urban accommodations. However, the progress of infrastructure development in India has been very challenging in the past two years. The customer base of the business showed a clear shift towards Government clients, as the private sector deferred their investment plans due to uncertainties caused by various economic developments. The decline in infrastructure spending can be attributed to the high cost of capital, high level of stressed assets leading to slowdown in funding from financial institutions, issues in land acquisition and economic slowdown. To turn Indias infrastructure dream into reality, several challenges need to be tackled efficiently. Some of the key issues faced by the sector in the past few years relate to:-

• funding,

• financial situation of developers and

• inflation pressures.


Opportunities :-

The recent developments in the Indian Economy reflect growth and positive indicators for industrial development which are encouraging. In the given environment of India being fairly poised towards growth, your Company stands in a strong position to grow rapidly due to its presence basically in the infrastructure sector, which is the backbone of countrys overall growth & development. Focus on infrastructure development leads your company to emerge great opportunities by expanding its operations in allied fields, branding on social media, adding a new division and leveraging existing operations which can leave in a position for more work.

Upgraded Infrastructure & Technologies in India will help it to meet growing demand for energy, transport, health, education, communication, consumption and better quality of life among its citizens. These targets for infrastructure development, means great opportunities to your Company.

• Strengths :-

It firmly believes in strong culture of corporate governance and ensures transparency and high levels of business ethics. Your Company possesses a Diversified business portfolio and strong order book with a successful track record of quality execution of well- designed projects in strategic locations, continuous cash flows, strong balance sheet and stable financial performance even in testing times make it a preferred choice for customers and shareholders. Your Companys focus on strengthening execution and operational efficiency, better asset utilisation, judicious use of working capital, business portfolio rationalisation and higher shareholder payouts are enabling the company to perform well on key parameters leading to improved Returns on Equity and increase in profitability while reducing costs to the extent possible which in return will lead to long term profitable growth.

Threats :

In spite of the Company, confident of creating and exploiting the opportunities, it also finds the following threats:

• Increasing competition from new entrants;

• Unanticipated delays in project approvals;

• Availability of accomplished and trained labour force;

• Increased cost of manpower;

• Rising cost of construction;

• Growth in auxiliary infrastructure facilities; and

• Over regulated environment.

These threats are offset by long term reforms in Policy, Plans and Regulatory regime to a large extent which are now taken by the Government and showing results.


The outlook appears bright, as this sector enjoys intense focus from Government for initiating policies that would ensure time bound creation of world class infrastructure in the country. The Government of India along with the governments of the respective states has taken several initiatives to encourage development in the sector. The Smart City Project, where there is a plan to build 100 smart cities, is a prime opportunity for the real estate companies. The government has been successful in handling some critical aspects such as identifying and formulating long-term and visionary infrastructure development initiatives. However, more effort is required to overcome the challenges of project funding and the financial constraints faced by the developers.

The Indian real estate sector will surely emerge stronger, healthier and capable of long periods of sustained growth with the progressive steps made by the government in the Union Budget such as undertaking policy reforms expecting to lead to higher investments in the sector though this will be constrained by fiscal deficit targets and other increased expenditures on account of pay revisions, etc.

Hence, the revival of public private partnership is crucial for improving the pace of infrastructure development. Renewed government focus on infrastructure, coupled with a rising demand for commercial and retail properties, will prove to be a solid foundation for fostering growth.
