Bethesda, Sept. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IGC), announced that all proposals were passed at its 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders reconvened on September 12, 2014.

IGC's CEO, Ram Mukunda said "We believe that in the current fiscal year that ends March 31, 2015, we will have growth over Fiscal 2014 coming from three lines of business: (1) the heavy equipment rental business in India, (2) indoor vertical farming of organic produce, and 3) trading of commodities and electronics."

Mukunda continued, we are strategically positioning the Company in legal cannabis by creating a portfolio of marijuana and hemp based patents, partnering to create and file for FDA approval of cannabinoid-based drugs for compassionate use, and creating an R&D lab in a country where we can legally grow the plants. In addition the vertical farms serve as ready infrastructure for growing cannabis, once legal."
