The chairman and MD of the world’s largest cycle company, HMC, shares his wishlist from Budget 2022.

"Cycling can be a great way to keep your fitness routine going while the world fights Omicron and prepares for new restrictions. It is not advisable to visit crowded and enclosed spaces such as the gym at this time when a new variant is spreading its claws.”

“As a result, people will continue to choose activities such as walking and cycling. In the last two years, we've witnessed a cycling revolution, with many people taking up cycling for better health and fitness. Due to the pandemic, the Indian government has extended the deadline for implementing the Smart Cities Mission until June 2023. Now is the time to build a countrywide cycling infrastructure that is friendly to citizens. This could be part of the government's Smart Cities Mission's focus on mobility solutions. We need this cycling culture to grow and continue in our country, so we are looking forward to better cycling infrastructure in all major cities and towns, as this will encourage a new culture, namely, cycling to work in India, which will reduce problems such as pollution."
