Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers Association (IEEMA) welcomed the Union Budget announced by the Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, as a “balanced budget”.

Reacting on the budget Anil Saboo, President – IEEMA, said, “A figure of Rs. 3.05 Lakh Crore will be invested in Discoms for improvement of feeder separation, prepaid Smart Metering and upgradation of systems. This investment will improve the functioning of Discoms and help in improving their health and viability.”

Vijay Karia, Vice President – IEEMA opined, “A record sum of Rs. 1.1 Lakh crore is assigned for Railways, of which Rs. 1.07 Lakh Crore is given for capital expenditure. Project imports benefit is also being extended to all high-speed railway projects, which will boost the electrical equipment sector and bring new opportunities for electrical equipment manufacturers. We heartily welcome this investment in the lifeline of the Nation.”

Neeraj Nanda, Vice President – IEEMA mentioned, “The manufacturing industry was severely hit by steep rise in price of commodities, especially steel. Reduction of Customs Duty uniformly to 7.5% on semis, flat, and long products of non-alloy, alloy will provide some relief to the manufacturers.”
