YOJANA July 2009 3
Abot the Isse
F
ew subjects in the policy debate have created as much convergence of interestsas the topic of infrastructure development. Anybody who takes more than justa passing interest in the state of affairs of the economy will be convinced thatinfrastructure development is vitally necessary.Having said that, it equally true there are fewer areas where the plans have proved
so difcult to execute. It is not a simple case of weakness in the rate of execution
of government plans, whether at the state or at the centre. The challenges for developing infrastructure have stymied even the best intentions of the private sector too. The challenges are on all fronts. The key challenge is of course is generating
resources to nance the projects, as infrastructure plans invariably demand huge
expenditure. The Prime Minister led committee on infrastructure has estimated
that it would take an investment of about Rs 25,00,000 crore ($500 billion) in the next ve years. To put
that number in perspective, it is three fourth the sie of our annual GDP. But as of now we are able to spendnot more than 3 to 4 % of our GDP for investment in infrastructure. This means we have to mobilise a huge
amount of resources from the nancial sector.
The other issue is the subject of returns from such investment. The public would be hard pressed to payfor all the bridges, water pipelines, roads and the true cost of electricity that developers would expect them
to pay. But without such an assurance it becomes difcult for even government departments to raise such
investments. In this context, the government and other agencies have to demonstrate to the public the necessityof such payments and yet be ready to partially pay for some of the costs from the exchequer.
We have already seen the benets of good infrastructure. It is impossible to imagine the trafc chaos that
would have resulted if the metro had not become operational in Kolkata and now in Delhi. Mumbai is racingagainst time to develop one such system and other cities are following suit. The development of the telecomsector has become so widespread that we may not realise that the success of the IT industry in India wasmade possible by it. But on the darker side, several key investments that can create employment and incomeacross the country are not happening because of the lack of reliable power supply and of decent roads thatcan carry the produce of the farms and the industry from the producers to the markets in other states.
So we need to nd the answers to these questions fast and in good time. The ensuing budget will be
expected to answer many of these questions for the economy; answers that will also tell us how fast theeconomy develops on the growth path. In this issue therefore we take a detailed look at several of these topicsand try to find answers to them.
