Urban demand has reached a positive territory and is now in the right direction, said Sanjiv Mehta, Managing Director and Chairman of Hindustan Unilever (HUL) while announcing the December quarter results of the consumer goods major.

It was urban demand that was the hardest hit due to coronavirus outbreak.

"In the last (September) quarter, urban demand was in negative territory but in the last three months, it has turned positive albeit at lower levels. And now it is in the right direction. The urban demand will increase, depending on the mobility which depends on vaccine rollout," said Mehta.

Now that there are no supply-side constraints any stimulus in demand in the upcoming Budget will help.
