Let cleanliness prevail in the backyard of our Swaraj

The Adani Group has interests across agriculture, logistics and energy around the world. The Ahmedabad-headquartered conglomerate filters through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) with an environmentally friendly approach through the Adani Foundation. As I pen down this piece, it evokes me to tread a little back to the 1990s when the writings of Mahatma Gandhi on cleanliness, health and hygiene, were reproduced and hugely circulated post the unfortunate outbreak of plague in Surat, Gujarat.

London, as one of the financial centres of the world, has shown a growing interest in solar in India as a promising story.

The World Bank’s representative working at the heart of the definitive ‘Doing Business’ rankings revisits the Indian government’s pledge to improve the country’s rating on global charts. The overall assessment is good but there is a long road ahead to achieve a truly business-friendly environment. The private sector is often described as the ‘engine of economic growth’, given its critical role in creating jobs, which enable citizens and countries to prosper. However, several factors, such as lack of access to finance or burdensome processes for starting a new business, can undermine private enterprise and, if left unaddressed, can impede growth.
