Rajeev Talwar, managing director of DLF, said the key areas the next government would need to focus on are tourism, infrastructure, including privatisation of road and rail transport, and third would be agriculture—with focus on cash crops and good storage facilities.
Focusing on these areas could mean India would be a $7 trillion economy in the next five years, said Talwar.
The sixth of the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections are underway today and Talwar exercised his franchise in Delhi.
Talking about relief to home buyers, he said, “If DLF has to be an example it has fulfilled all its customer commitments and has created a surplus. [The company] has made a good portfolio of 30-32 million sq ft of leased out properties, which means money and cash flow is okay, sales are okay.
“So, the first responsibility of the government, any local body and all developers is that all those who had booked apartments should get them as early as possible and at the same price they had booked at,” he added.
