  A robust roadmap of a self-reliant India  


In an unprecedented global health crisis, numerous countries across the globe witnessed nationwide lockdowns, slowdown in economic activity and market volatility. India also faced a similar situation as COVID-19 cases rose across the country. However, to combat the economic impact of the virus the Government launched the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan.


Under the aegis of the vision of a self-reliant India, an array of targeted & focused economic reforms were introduced. India started seeing a recovery with NIFTY reaching a level of over 10,029 points on June 4, 2020 from closing at a low of 7,610 points on March 23, 2020. The reforms included reduction in key lending rates by the Reserve Bank of India, extension in moratorium for loan repayments, and a relief package to support daily wage earners and healthcare workers. Thus, creating numerous avenues for investors to leverage the opportunities arising out of the economic reforms.

  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in India:
An INR 7000 crore industry in the making

  The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global health crisis that the world is currently facing. The onset of the virus, however, also led to a boom in certain industries such as PPE manufacturing. To leverage this opportunity and ensure safety of India’s front line workers, the Ministry of Textiles undertook an in-depth assessment of the availability of protective gear. What followed this, was a remarkable journey of collaboration between the Government at the centre and state levels, industries and workers, to revamp existing production lines to manufacture a completely unknown product, from scratch. From zero, India now produces nearly 4.5 lakh PPE kits every day. In 60 days, the PPE industry in India has witnessed 56x growth- and is an opportune sunrise industry for investors to start their New India investment journey.
