Nuvoco welcomes the initiatives in the latest Interim Budget, which acknowledges the Government's commitment to growing the economy in challenging geopolitical conditions. As part of the PM Gati Shakti program, to foster strong multimodal connectivity, three proposed major economic railway corridors focusing on energy, minerals, and cement will improve logistics efficiency and reduce costs. This will benefit both the industry and the economy.

In addition, the focus on the Individual House Builders (IHB) Segment, particularly the new housing scheme for the middle class, aligns perfectly with the nation's socio-economic goals. The initiative to construct two crore houses under the PM Awas Yojana and the progress of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Grameen), with an additional two crore homes planned to be built over the next five years, is particularly noteworthy. The government's efforts to improve port connectivity, decongest high-traffic rail corridors, and transform metro rail are positive developments for the ready-mix concrete industry. These measures should further improve the standard of living for millions of people and offer numerous opportunities for economic and community development.
