What is your outlook for the power sector in India.
Our outlook for the power sector is positive, as in the long run as electricity remains essential to our life. The demand for power will continue to grow at 6-7 per cent and old capacities will be decommissioned. Additionally, the renewable sector, grid strengthening and growth of smart grids will keep the sector busy in the coming years.
