Conference Panel: Infrastructure in India

Commenting on the delays in getting infrastructure projects off the ground toward creating a project pipeline, G.V.Sanjay Reddy, Vice Chairman, GVK Industries Ltd., pointed out that it is more important to get decisions made in getting infrastructure projects off the ground as opposed to developing detailed policy frameworks. That's the 30,000 foot eyeview of the problems in execution.

This, coming from an India company, seems to make sense. The India company has expertise in managing vested interests throughout the project lifecycle and a greater appetite for management risks.

Could there also be a realization that once Indian firms develop core capabilities and differentiate, a network of firms/ contractors/ sub-contractors model would become feasible?

Another thought that I would have like to pose to the policymakers is the consideration they give to developing policy roadmaps.

What do you think?
