Will be surprised if see any announcement for paper industry in Budget: GP Goenka of Star Paper

Paper industry could witness some benefits coming through in the Union Budget 2020, said GP Goenka, chairman of Star Paper Mills .
Goenka said on CNBC-TV18 that it’s difficult to say if there will be any plastic ban in the upcoming Budget.
“However, there is a definite hope that plastic would be banned whether it happens during the Budget or takes another couple of months, no one knows,” he added.
He said: “I will be very surprised if in the Budget there is anything for the paper industry.” “It’s high time that we get into bullish phase of paper industry for the next 3 months, but I do not know if the government will do something in the immediate future. I think the government will be focusing on more important segments,” Goenka added.
On business front, the chairman said: “For the last month or so there has been some improvement. We expected much more than what happened, but seeing an uptick in demand as a busy season approaches.”
According to him, higher import at lower cost is impacting the overall paper industry.
