Dr. Steffen Berns, Managing Director of Bosch Limited and President of Bosch Group in India looks forward to an inclusive and growth oriented budget to foster auto industry revival. To foster growth, the annual budget needs to stimulate investment flow in key sectors, which in the long term would boost consumption.
He looks forward to implementation of GST to help GDP growth. Sustainable infrastructure development, especially roads, railways and ports is key. To encourage manufacturing, measures that improve the ‘Ease of doing business’ should be initiated. This points to a clear roadmap including transparent process oriented way with defined timeframe for clearances. Fiscal discipline and control on fiscal deficit would be essential.
