Any organization can move forward with small incremental changes but building for the future in today’s rapidly evolving environment means taking bold chances and making insightful decisions. 

Why India ?

A $2.5 Trillion economy that is rapidly rising thanks to slew of economic reforms and ease of doing business in last 3-4 years, India is home to nearly 1.37 Billion people with world’s largest democracy. Evolving consumer lifestyles, emerging middle class population combined with rising incomes is contributing to the overall growth of the economy which eventually is causing an uptick in almost all sectors like Automobile, Chemicals, Conventional & Renewable Energy, Finance & FinTech, Real Estate, Education, FMCG, E-Commerce, Lifestyle, Retail & Consumer Sector, Information Technology, Biotech & Healthcare, Infrastructure & Civil, Travel & Tourism. 

From increasing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) limits across various sectors to rapidly rising economy and population, India is not only opening up its doors to foreign businesses but is also rapidly pushing for international businesses to manufacture or come to India. To boost foreign investments, government has further eased the costs and timeline of getting permits by making it relatively quicker and easier. Combine this with a fluent English speaking population that comes with highly qualified education and corporate experience in IT, Finance, E- commerce, Technology, FMCG & other business sectors, India offers an exciting potential for doing business as well as profitable growth for next 10-15 years. 

Recent government push towards Manufacturing, Innovation & Renewable Energy sources like Solar, Wind, Electric Vehicles is setting up the theme for coming decade of economic engine growth. 

Road Ahead

  • Under the “ Make in India” campaign, government is aggressively pushing for India as next generation manufacturing hub providing single stop and easy business licenses, expedited special legal counsel for disputes and resolutions, monetary incentives, rebates and tax benefits to all foreign businesses wanting to establish a presence in India
