Agrawal looks to Improved growth projections

Agrawal looks to Improved growth projections

(Posted on 06/12/20)

Rajiv Agarwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Essar Ports, has given his reaction to the Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy.

“We appreciate RBI’s efforts to maintain an accommodative stance. The unchanged Repo rate is understandable despite a spurt in inflation, which has been primarily driven by disruptions in supply chain, excessive margins and indirect taxes. However, it is imperative that going forward there is a cap on lending rates for low cost funding in order to boost the demand, the growth and the new wave of investments. This and the central bank’s recent measures along with appropriate reforms for an Atmanirbhar Bharat will definitely fuel the country’s economic revival. Improved growth projections are also reflective of an optimistic recovery led by a visible increase in urban and rural demand.”

Essar Ports specializes in development and operations of ports and terminals for handling dry bulk, break bulk, liquid and general cargo. It is one of the largest private sector port operators in India in terms of capacity and throughput. It has four operational terminals in India—one each in Hazira and Salaya (both in Gujarat) on the west coast, and in Visakhapatnam and Paradip on the east coast. The current operational capacity of the port terminals in India is 110 MTPA.
