Outlook

We expect economy to grow strongly, based on Reserve Bank of India’s repo rate cut to boost private investment and an increase in disposable incomes of households due to tax benefits. Government’s thrust and higher outlays on infrastructure and affordable housing apart from reduction in rates for under-construction flats should further accelerate construction activity and spur cement demand.
