This site provides detail information on India Infrastructure Investment. The site also focuses on the current scenario and reforms effected by the government for infrastructure development in India.

'India Infrastructure Investment' an ambitious reform programme, involving a paradigm shift of stance from insulated to an open market economy. Indian economy is now feeling the heat of basic infrastructure constraints, both physical and human. Until very recently, the bulk of infrastructure was in the government sector. Public sector in India operating in a protected set up has been largely subsidized by the Government. There is one area where there is a need for private sector and foreign investment to come in. Infrastructure projects have long gestation period, and many social implications. Thus, India Infrastructure Investment schemes should be attractive. Clearly, there is a wide gap between the potential demand for infrastructure for high growth and the available supply. This is the challenge placed before the economy, i.e. before the public and private sector and foreign investors. This can also be seen as an opportunity for a widening market and enhanced production.
