Q. The number of companies in India is way too many, and the competition in the market is to its peak. Do you think budding entrepreneurs can still make their own way?
Yes, budding entrepreneurs can still make their way because they have more to offer when it comes to thinking out of the box and being different in the industry. They can really make a difference by going for a more personalised approach and bring in better involvement of top management and visionaries.
Q. The days of Indian companies struggling to compete globally are over. What is your approach towards reaching global or universal standards?

Then came a time when the market was slow and we felt a bit stagnant.But due to our diversified project portfolio, we always managed to do decent business, and now, from last year the market has picked up and so has our growth. I guess all ups and downs have made us a better planner and strategist!
