On the auspicious day of Maha Ashtami, the day of worshipping Shakti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a massive Rs 100-trillion infrastructure initiative which is dubbed as the country’s roadmap for the next 25 years.

Sarbananda Sonowal is one of 16 ministries and departments responsible for the proper planning and execution of infrastructure projects. This project will include major Central Government ministries like Railways, Roads and Highways, Petroleum and Gas, Power, Telecom, Shipping, and Aviation.

Speaking further on the power of this plan, Sonowal said, “There has always been a gap between macro planning and micro execution.Due to bureaucratic entanglements and inter-ministerial silos, the work used to get held up costing the exchequer huge cost.

To address this problem, the plan envisions a digital portal with all existing and planned infrastructure projects of the ministries and departments included in the project.

It further aims to create multimodal connectivity that will reduce costs. With holistic planning and execution, there is going to be swift execution and savings on time and money.

With the transparency of progress, it will be now easier to prioritize projects through cross-sectoral interactions.”

Benefit for the state

State governments will also profit greatly from this initiative, according to the government, because they will be able to determine time frames for specific infrastructure projects and pitch for investor interest by providing a reasonable length of commitment. The project intends to reduce logistical costs by enhancing last-mile connectivity and maximizing the use of all economic zones and industrial parks by enhancing multi-modal connectivity (PIB).
