Hello friends, associates, and IBG members

This is my first note for the year 2021. (Many more going forward). The whole world has gone through a most terrible year. Most have survived till now. We are finally seeing the advent of vaccines, though their real therapeutic value is still to unfold. There is a lot of confusion about their efficacy. We do not yet know if there will be short term or long term side effects. Even if they really protect against Covid. There is unclarity on how long they last and protect. The guess is from 3 months to a year. Are there side effects will be visible after millions have been inoculated. It’s best to stay with the known safety protocols like wearing a mask, maintaining the distance of minimum 6 feet, washing hands frequently, etc.

I know I am repeating of repeated ideas and suggestions, after all it’s a matter of life or death. We cannot and should not take Covid lightly even for a minute. Even a friend could be a carrier,
unknowingly. And don’t forget your slip or wrong actions can affect your family. It is expected that things will become better with time, may be till end of this year. There is no magic bullet yet. It exists inside each of us, the chances we take, the actions we do. Most of us have survived this long, make sure you come through on the other side and continue with our life till natural death. Vaccines will being administered from 16th of Jan., so let’s bid our time for our turn. Even after getting the required dose, our guard must not be let down.

Budget: Let me speak briefly on the budget which is round the corner. The government knows well how businesses have crumbled across the country and the world. This is the best opportunity to set the economy into positive direction. While I don’t have detailed suggestions on the budget, our PM has the best economists to advise and guide. What we should hope it the government thinks of the lowest common denominator. The budget must leave cash in the hands of the masses, the poorest of the poor, those who most need it. Many of us have a nest egg to fall back on, so hope the budget allows us to build on it. The taxes, especially the indirect taxes like GST must be reduced. It hits every pocket @18 or 27 %. Money in the hands of the poor will eventually reach the top when it is spent. Money in the hands of the rich will stay there, not trickle down, so it should be a bottoms up budget.

IBG: The moment the lockdown was announced on 14th March 2020, it became starkly evident that IBG would not survive in its present form. We pivoted IBG into an online and International chamber. We quickly made efforts to do tie ups with other Indian and International chambers. Within a few months we have made a working group of around 10 Indian and 35 International chambers. This is called the Sister Chambers Group. This number will increase this year. As most of you know we are aware, we now do regular interactions between our members. I hope all of you take advantage of this and increase your business interactions and benefit from this IBG move. Become a member to take best advantage.

Before I end this note, I wish you all a good 2021. We will review this end of the year.
