Tata Steel CEO & MD’s comments on Union Budget 2022-23
It is encouraging to see the administration continuing to prioritise infrastructure and increasing public expenditure while maintaining a strict budget and steady policy framework.
In order to guarantee that the advantages spread across the economy, we applaud Budget 2022–23 and look forward to a diligent implementation of the suggested measures.
The additional funding for infrastructure projects will undoubtedly boost the economy, creating jobs throughout the nation and stimulating demand for a variety of goods, including steel.
The PM Gatishakti Yojana, network development, and establishment of multi-modal national parks will be vital in modernising the nation’s logistics infrastructure, increasing industrial competitiveness, and fostering entrepreneurial prospects.
The Make in India initiative will gain momentum thanks to the allocation of 68 percent of capex for the defence industry for domestic procurement.
The Ease of Doing Business 2.0 process roadmap is a positive step toward increasing productivity, efficiency, and transparency and will open the door to addressing challenging problems with regard to green clearances and land acquisition.
The initiatives about more accessible tap water, cheap housing, and the establishment of a strong digital infrastructure in rural areas would promote equitable growth.
The budget contains long-term goals to support the transition to a green economy in order to address climate-related problems.
We warmly welcome any initiatives that may assist in achieving our net zero aim, including the inclusion of sovereign green bonds in government borrowing programmes, the PLI scheme for the production of high efficiency solar modules, and the funding of projects to decrease carbon intensity.
The battery swapping policy will promote the use of EVs and help with sustainability. In order to promote smart and sustainable living, the budget also tackles the crucial backdrop of urban planning with an emphasis on establishing sanitary public transportation networks.
The extension of the exemption from customs duties on scrap steel is a step in the right direction since it would increase the country’s scrap availability, reduce the steel industry’s carbon footprint, and aid MSME secondary producers.
The budget for 2022–2023 generally lays out the steps necessary to achieve the goal of a $5 trillion GDP.
