Panel Discussion: Financing, Investment and Business Avenues in the Metro & Rail sectors

According to the approximations of a recent report – India will require Rs. 50 trillion (US$ 777.73 billion) in infrastructure by 2022 for sustainable development in the country. It is also marking a myriad of opportunities for foreign investors to invest in the country’s infrastructure development. Furthermore, the estimates shared by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) suggest – FDIs in the construction development and infrastructure activities stood at US$ 17.22 billion in September 2020.

Rendering to the current market scenario, the Indian government plans to spend USD 1.4 trillion during 2019 – 2023 on infrastructure with an investment of USD 750 billion on railways infrastructure by 2030. On the further hand, the onset of the pandemic caused an unapproachable situation in front of infrastructure companies to recover from an all-time low of the previous year. This necessitates an urgent need to come up with highly effective strategies to stimulate growth in the sector.
