Post-budget 2018 Reaction Mr. Amit Sarda, Managing Director, Soulflower

For the first time in history a Finance Minister (FM) has spoken about essential oils and organic farming. We wish to thank the Hon’ble FM for giving this sector the recognition and much needed impetus. An allocation of Rs.200 crore although is small, but is a great step in driving India towards becoming the top producer of essential oils. Funding Minimum Support Price (MSP) will see a better rural economy and will help the FMCG consumption to go higher. Another important announcement made today was the setting up of 5 lakh Wi-Fi hotspots which will boost e-commerce penetration in rural India. This is a great step towards creating a Digital Green India.
