From The President’s Desk


The new financial year has begun. Last year had its own share of ups and downs, with the Demonetisation exercise, the GST imbroglio , the political wranglings etc etc. Lets hope for a smoother year ahead, when business people can go about their work without stress and tensions . The overall situation of the economy is getting better, with the long term prospects looking good. There are certainly some recent stock market uncertainties, but I expect them to bottom out in the near future. And in any case , we are not so concerned with the stock markets, it’s the overall economy and the markets for our goods and services that matter.

So buckle up and look ahead, plan your growth, make your business investments judiciously and move forward. All the very best in your endeavours
