Earlier in the day, Sitharaman exuded confidence that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will come back to power with a good majority after the Lok Sabha elections.

"Soon after the government is formed, we look forward to a more pointed engagement with the CII to see what best can be done in the July budget, which will be the full year's budget...a lot of consultation can begin with the CII team as well," she said during her address at the CII Annual Business Meeting.

Sitharaman said the country presents immense growth opportunities, which extend to all segments of the economy. The minister said that according to the RBI and Economic Survey, India has graduated from the twin balance sheet problem of the past to the twin balance sheet advantage, which has led to vibrancy in the market, thereby, propelling investment expansion by corporates on one hand and willingness and capacity of banks to lend on the other.
