Industry leaders and experts from India’s Water & Waste sector react to the Union Budget 2021 presented on February 1, 2021…

“The Union Budget 2021 is geared towards recovery, revival, and growth for a more sustainable and inclusive economy.


Our key takeaway is the government’s focus on initiatives like Jal Jeevan Mission and Urban Swachh Bharat Mission 2.0, CapEx fund for Railways, and Voluntary Vehicle Scrappage policy, that we may relate our business to.


The Jal Jeevan Mission initiative calls for countrywide wastewater treatment infrastructure. Through our subsidiary – Toshiba Water Solutions, we will be happy to utilize our strengths in providing water and wastewater treatment solutions and support the government’s aims.


Voluntary Vehicle Scrappage policy will boost demand for fuel-efficient, environment-friendly vehicles. Toshiba’s rechargeable battery – SCiB is ideal for hybrid vehicles for features like excellent safety, long life, and rapid charging. We expect the SCiB can promote green transportation in India.

Toshiba looks forward to offering more of our infrastructure solutions to India, turning on the promise of a new day for a sustainable economy.”

– Tomohiko Okada, Managing Director, Toshiba India Pvt. Ltd.
