Sanjeev Kathpalia, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We welcome the various measures introduced by the Finance Minister in the Union Budget, particularly the reduction of the corporate income tax rate to 25%. This, along with the government’s ongoing support of the technology sector, augurs well for our business. We are also pleased to announce a three-year renewal of a major client contract, as well as winning three new logos.”
Yusuf Lanewala, Non-Executive Chairman, stated, “We continue to make progress in the implementation of the Bhopal Smart Parking project with close to one third of the sites operational to date. We expect all remaining sites to be live by mid-2018. Separately, we applaud the Union Government’s continued prioritization of Smart City initiatives with the additional allocation of over Rs 2.04 lakh crore for 99 smart cities. This constitutes an important business opportunity for Mindteck and represents a significant growth engine for the company going forward.”
