Goldy Nagdev, MD, Hari Darshan


Goldy Nagdev is the Managing Director of Hari Darshan Sevashram Pvt. Ltd. and a
fourth-generation entrepreneur. He spoke to on his outlook for the coming year 2023.

1. Expectations from Government in the coming year for Incense/Retail/Manufacturing Industry.

I firmly believe in this government’s commitment to growth of industry, particularly MSME sector. To would like to see consistent introduction of initiatives that encourage entrepreneurs and protect small and micro units.

2. Any big changes you want to see that will strengthen the economy at the grassroots level.

Going forward I’d expect some sort of measures that curtail growing cost of production.
Transportation and Packaging are two key elements in this.
Besides, a more balanced growth of infrastructure is needed across the country to bring in parity in land and labour costs. Concentration of industry and employment in selected and specific areas leads to opportunity in those areas but disparity all across

3. Future of Indian retail, innovations in packaging and the future of duplex and corrugation and fragrance trends in India.

Future of Indian Retail is Hybrid. Online and Offline will coexist mutually by completing and competing with each other at same time.

Increasing costs of duplex and corrugating would lead to manufacturers looking for alternative packaging for their products which may disrupt this industry in long run. Instead of passing the costs to end user, duplex and corrugating industry should look for innovations and take this initiative upon themselves to arrest these increasing costs.
