  Infrastructure Development- Fulfilling the USD 5 Tn Economy Vision  
  Banner  

  The infrastructure sector in India is one of the key drivers of the economy. Due to the scale of its impact, this sector commands considerable attention from the Government and has witnessed numerous reforms aimed at boosting demand and ensuring economic growth. In recent years, the Government has undertaken significant reforms to accelerate construction of roads, redevelopment of existing railway stations, building of economic & freight corridors, and development of new airports. All these activities have had a positive catalytic effect on the economy in terms of growth, jobs and investments.  

  Further, GoI constituted a task force for the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP)- an investment plan unveiled by the central government for enhancing infrastructure in identified sectors across the country and for improving the quality of life for all citizens. The task force submitted its final report on NIP to the Hon’ble Finance Minister, Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman. The report projects a total infrastructure investment of INR 111 lakh Cr during FY 2020-25. The report also suggests innovative means of financing NIP through Corporate Bond markets. The efficient execution of NIP projects will aid in strengthening the Indian economy and will provide the much needed boost to employment in the country.  

  As the Government works towards economic resurgence, focus and efforts of revival have to shift towards sectors such as infrastructure that provide greater job creation opportunity in the country. In this edition we look at infrastructure development amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
