Prime Minister Narendra Modi met chief executives of leading companies across sectors including banking, automobiles, telecom, consumer goods, renewables, hospitality, technology, healthcare, space and electronics. Monday’s interaction was held to gather inputs ahead of the Union Budget that will be presented in February.

“This is one of the many interactions being done by PM @narendramodi ahead of the budget to receive inputs and suggestions from the private sector,” the government said in a tweet.

“The whole interaction today was about how to do we take India forward. It was an open interaction and we could freely communicate our thoughts … PM’s suggestions, comments, expansive thinking, and vision fills us with a very strong sense of confidence that India will move ahead very strongly in the coming decade,” Mallika Srinivasan, CMD, Tractors and Farm Equipments Ltd, said after the meeting.

Kotak Mahindra Bank CEO Uday Kotak said the financial sector has the capacity and is ready to support industry and the economy. “I am very enthused about the potential of India and Indian banking and finance is out there and ready to support industry across SIDI (sustainability, inclusion, digital and infrastructure).”

“Prime Minister’s focus on research, innovation, his belief in the capacity that India has, is to step way beyond where we are. He has laid out a clear vision statement that in every sector, every industry, we should be in the top 5 in the global rankings and if possible number 1. That kind of attitude, that kind of tone from the top will energise the country to go way beyond our current success and strive for much more,” says Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO & MD, TCS, said after the meeting.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is set to present on February 1 the Budget for the upcoming fiscal. Last week, Modi met leading private equity/venture capital players to seek suggestions on making India a more attractive investment destination.
