Rebooting activities in the Infra sector and more so in the road sector is critical for the economy. We expect the road construction activity to pick up pace from end of August or early September onwards, once the monsoon tapers off and the immigrant workers are back at the jobsites.

For a healthy growth of the road sector we need to get more long-term investments at low interest rates.
Covid 19 has had a devastating effect on the infrastructure industry and on the financial performance of companies. There is a lot of uncertainty with regards to demand of machinery. As of now, we cannot be sure of the total impact and the timeline before things come back to normal. Our estimate is that it would take at least 6-12 months before the situation returns to normal. So, we are having a relook at our plans and making the necessary adjustments in our business.

For a healthy growth of the road sector we need to get more long-term investments at low interest rates. In fact, for infrastructure developments like roads etc, we definitely need more investment to come from outside, and for the government to fulfil its ambitions under the National Infrastructure Pipeline program.

The plan of the government to award enough jobs under the National Infrastructure Pipeline would definitely help the CE sector and the country’s economy.
Rebooting activities in the Infra sector and more so in the road sector is critical for the economy as this industry can provide a lot of employment, especially in the road sector. We expect the road construction activity to pick up pace from end of August or early September onwards, once the monsoon tapers off and the immigrant workers are back at the jobsites. There are enough projects which are already awarded and contracts available with the contractors. Only the work needs to get going on these projects, which will automatically revive the economy.
