More Info
- A total length of 21,787 km of national highways has been completed till March 2014 under various phases
of the NHDP. In spite of several constraints due to the economic downturn, the NHAI constructed 2844 km
length in 2012-13, its highest ever annual achievement. During 2013-14 a total of 1901 km of road
construction was completed.
- From the infrastructure development perspective, while important issues like delays in regulatory approvals,
problems in land acquisition & rehabilitation, environmental clearances, etc. need immediate attention, time
overruns in the implementation of projects continue to be one of the main reasons for underachievement in
many of the infrastructure sectors.

- The world is not on track for limiting increase in global average temperature to below 2?C, above pre-
industrial levels. GHG emissions grew on average 2.2 per cent per year between 2000 and 2010, compared to
1.3 per cent per year between 1970 and 2000.
- There is immense pressure on governments to act through two new agreements on climate change and
sustainable development, both of which will be global frameworks for action to be finalized next year.
- The cumulative costs of India's low carbon strategies have been estimated at around USD 834 billion at
2011 prices, between 2010 and 2030.

India ranked 12th in terms of services GDP and is the second fastest growing services sector with its CAGR at
9.0 per cent is a dubious distinction. Contrast it with the fact that industry grew by just 1.0 per cent in 2012-13 and
slowed further in 2013-14. Much of the service sector, for eg. insurance, is parasitic. Only when the country has
achieved high industrial growth should it allow Service sector to grow.

Human induced Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are growing and are chiefly responsible for climate change -
What a fallacious statement to make! CO2 causing global warming is just a supposition of the fear monger
environmentalists. Nature is much more complex than proponents of global warming by green house gas

Did anyone ask why is it that Public sector banks (PSBs) have high exposures to the 'industry' sector in general
and to such 'stressed' sectors infrastructure, iron and steel, textiles, aviation and mining in particular? who forced
them to lend 80% of the project cost to anyone and everyone with the right connection to set up Coal based
thermal power plants? Is there any wonder that NPA of Public sector banks are increasing alarmingly?
