Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operations of a society or the enterprise. It can be generally defined as the set of interconnected structural elements that provides support for the development of the economy as a whole. The foreign investment in the infrastructure remains dim during last few quarters even though the Government of India promotes foreign capital and creating an investor friendly environment. Lack of infrastructure adversely affects the growth of other sectors also. Infrastructure in India is viewed as a tough sector to invest due to its long term gestation period. India needs an investment of USD 1.7 tn in infrastructure, only then the country would be able to meet its requirements based on the expected GDP growth.
The Indian Government has identified Infrastructure as one of the key drivers of economic development in the country. Investment in Infrastructure has increased from about 5% of GDP in the 10th Five Year Plan period to 9% in the 11th Five year Plan Period. Moreover, India's planning commission has projected an investment of USD 1 tn for the infrastructure sector during the 12th Five Year Plan, with 50% of the funds coming from the private sector. At the minimum, 45% investment in infrastructure is towards construction & 20% of the infrastructure spend will be for modernization of the construction industry. In order to attract such investment, the Indian government has eased foreign direct investment (FDI) norms for quite a few sectors of infrastructure development.
