Quotes

Brother VV Rane, coordinator of IndustriALL’s shipbreaking project, was among the first ones to visit the accident site. "Gross negligence and a lack of commitment towards safety by the Paras Steel Corporation, together with indifference from regulating and enforcement authorities has lead to the industrial homicide of five workmen, causing irreparable damage to their families,” said Rane."
"1,800 enforcement officers will be deployed nationwide to ensure traders abide with the price control."
The budget has also given a reason for shipbreakers in Alang, the biggest graveyard for ships in Asia, to cheer. "The reduction in basic custom duty on ships imported for breaking to 2.5% from 5% will result in a saving of Rs 500 per tonne, which is significant" said Jivraj Patel, a ship breaker
...Lord Paul, founder Chairman of the Caparo Group said, "I congratulate Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for clearly laying out the roadmap for economic recovery of the country. Jaitley deserves all praise for presenting a budget that clearly lay the foundation for implementing the promises made by the BJP during the election campaign. He has inherited a tough economic situation but it is clear that he is not daunted by it. The budget will restore faith in Indian economy and give confidence to foreign investors.”"
