Has India lost the momentum for reaching her goal of becoming a super power in this millennium? With a holistic turnaround required to reverse India’s fortunes, what according to you will be a credible roadmap for India to realize her goals?
Well, I feel India should focus on growth so that every Indian benefits. There is no point being a Super Power if the average Indian does not benefit. A strong and resilient economy will automatically make it a super power.
With the economy slowing what has been the Impact on your industry and outline your company’s journey of staying resilient through change?
Fortunately, there has not been too much of an impact, though projects/orders take a little additional time to close.
Our philosophy has always been to provide the product as a solution to problem. We focus on developing latent markets, either new application niches, and expand our geographical reach.
I believe innovation, in ideas as well as technologies is the key. Another focus is honing of all our resources, including human resources for better productivity
