Infrastructure impacts our personal and economic health in more ways than we can imagine. For the safety and security of our society, we need to rebuild the congested roads,aging dams, broken water mains, and deficient bridges. Moreover we must become better stewards of the environment through sustainable infrastructure practices. The quality of life for future generations depends on our willingness to rise to the challenge.
Current economic and financial uncertainties in India are affecting investments in long-term infrastructure projects. Reduced long term investment, policy paralysis of the government, tightened lending, risk perception and increased macroeconomic risks are potential crisis spillovers of the uncertain market responses. Weakening of Rupee is further driving up the cost of dollar-denominated fuel and imports of raw materials, crucial to the infrastructure projects. Government of India has recently taken critical decisions to fast-track execution of the pending high-investment infrastructure projects which may contribute to rejuvenate the stagnated growth of Indian economy.
