Yes Bank has unveiled a Knowledge Report titled ‘Redefining Indian Infrastructure’.
The report reviews the current infrastructure set up and identifies key gaps that need to be plugged if India is to maintain its economic growth momentum. The analysis particularly focuses on Maharashtra – looking at existing infrastructure and planned initiatives. It highlights the various major initiatives taken by the central government with regard to port and road infrastructure, with special focus on port-led industrialisation and efforts to boost inland waterways and coastal shipping, promotion of “green infra” projects and adoption of state-of-art technology.
While also listing the major challenges faced by the infrastructure industry, the report focuses on how these challenges can be best overcome. Against this backdrop, the report also looks into various alternative and innovative financing structures that could be explored to propel the infrastructure sector. In conclusion, the report lists a series of policy recommendations.
