Chairman’s commentary

There is the India of uncertainty due to the forthcoming election and escalating tensions with Pakistan over Kashmir. However from a policy perspective regarding business although the election has meant a slow-down in de-regulation, whoever wins the election, there is commitment to continue this process.

The other India is the India of everyday business – which continues irrespective of the headlines and the continued evolution of a massive and growing market. Everyone on the call represented companies who recognise this. As well as illustrating the commitment of companies to the India market, the call also highlighted that:

  • Documentation remains challenging and keeping track of regulation remains a problem.
  • The regulations for external commercial borrowings (ECB) have eased.
  • Companies are using both NDFs and onshore hedging but there is debate as to which approach is more efficient.
  • Repatriation of cash remains an issue
