  • The Government has proposed an investment of ₹50,00,000 crore for railways projects from 2018-2030.

  • Punatsangchhu-II Hydroelectric Project (Bhutan)
  • Pakul Dul Hydroelectric Project (Jammu & Kashmir)

Risks and concerns

  • Most infrastructure projects in India are government initiatives. So, a lot of regulatory compliances and bureaucracy are to be dealt with for large-scale infrastructure projects.
  • The low level of private investment in infrastructure in India is a cause for concern.
  • Delay in land acquisition, obtaining forest and environment clearances, project financing tie-ups and lack of infrastructure support and linkages result in project cost and time escalations. This may cause delays in project execution.
  • The possible rise in energy costs may impact cement production.
  • Rise in inflation, the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and the economic slowdown in China are some key global situations that may affect the availability of raw materials. Such situations could impact project executions related to the diversified infrastructure industry in India.
