With the change in central government, India emerged as the ‘darling’ of investors as the new party in power promised to unlock stuck projects, put renewed focus on ease of doing business and openly welcome companies to ‘Make in India’.
Despite positive headwinds, Weak demand, constrained financial flexibility of major players, and the risk aversion of financiers continues to impact investments in the Indian economy. However better utilization of present capacity, overall growth is around 8%, if one excludes reduction in top line of petroleum sector which is quite healthy in spite of prevailing economic situation in the world
