Post Budget 2018 Reaction: Gagan Vermani, Founder & CEO, MYSUN

Gagan Vermani, Founder & CEO, MYSUN said “So eventually the ‘election year’ has taken the shine away from the ‘Sun’. It is disappointing to see that the solar energy sector has been ignored in this year’s budget. It was much awaited that the Finance Minister would clear the government’s view on customs duty on solar cells and modules, but that has not materialized. Overall, with its overriding focus on farmers, the budget is expected to give a boost to rural consumption which in turn will help India achieve its much higher GDP forecasts for the next year.”
