Packaging South AsiaWe need to compete with the world at realistic prices — One of our industry friends, Faheem Agboatwala of Hi-Tech Printing Services in Mumbai, was kind enough to send us a commentary on the budget presented by the Finance Minister on 9 July 2014. I saw two things of particular interest to printers and converters. The first is the investment allowance benefit for projects of Rs 25 crore in a particular year. This will come into play for the bigger printers and converters and could be an incentive for those with the bankable plans and confidence to build a new plant and put in a new multicolor UV press and all the finishing and converting equipment and software. I can think of at least ten players whose projects this could help in this year itself.
