The conclusion of elections in India marks a pivotal moment for investors, prompting a reassessment of strategies to align with anticipated policy changes and economic shifts under the new government. This period of transition demands vigilance and adaptability as investors monitor policy announcements and economic indicators to refine their investment strategies.

Sethurathnam Ravi, founder of Ravi Rajan & Co., underscores the continuity expected with the NDA government continuing at the center. “Prime Minister Modi’s third tenure suggests continuity with policies framed during NDA one and two. The allocation of cabinet portfolios reflects a commitment to maintaining continuity, making vision documents like Viksit Bharat relevant today,” Ravi commented.

During NDA 2, the government focused significantly on sectors such as e-mobility, infrastructure (including rural development), ESG initiatives, Defence, and IT infrastructure. “Indian banking remains well-capitalized and under strict regulation. Interventions in cases like PMC Bank, Yes Bank, and Laxmi Vilas Bank illustrate robust regulatory oversight. RBI’s supervision extends to NBFCs, ARCs, and cooperative banks,” S Ravi BSE ,Former chairman emphasized.

5. IT and Software Cybersecurity emerges as a critical focus amid escalating online business activities and fraud risks. Data protection assumes paramount importance in safeguarding digital assets.
