Abstract

The Government of India is making concerted efforts to reduce transport bottlenecks, particularly on roads. This ARI discusses the new policy initiatives formulated as part of an evolving regulatory regime, particularly those intended to encourage greater private sector participation and foreign direct investment. This ARI deals, first, with the evolution of infrastructure policy in conjunction with broader socio-economic objectives and the progress to date. Secondly, it provides a statistical overview of the state of the roads in India by category and planned growth during the remainder of the 11th (2007-12) and 12th (2012-17) Plans. Third, it discusses the new policy initiatives formulated as part of an evolving regulatory regime, particularly those intended to encourage greater private-sector participation and FDI.
