This edition brings to our readers a featured article on “National Food Processing Policy – A Shot in the Arm for the Food Sector”.

With intent to attract more investments and enhance growth in the food sector, the Government of India has issued a comprehensive draft National Food Processing Policy to facilitate the Indian food industry. The suggestions mentioned in the policy aims for overall growth of the food processing sector and connect farmers with the value chain for remunerative returns. The policy also suggests the steps to be taken by the state governments to achieve these goals. The policy is still under consideration and will be finalized soon after considering the comments of stakeholders.

We continue to highlight certain key judgements passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India as well as changes in Corporate and Commercial matters, and updates in Projects, Energy and Natural Resources, IP sector and Banking and Project Finance.
