    The country is developing in a certain and sure-footed way.
    Now we need to focus on semiconductor and electronics manufacturing with assistance from American and Japanese.
    If only our Government sees it as critical?

    Can you please clarify what you meant by certain and sure-footed way...

    As per our basic knowledge we are having humongous inflation, countries economy is in tatters, exports have dwindled, growth has contracted, And GoI is pushing liquidity into the market to destabilise the rupee. ANd rupee has lost its sheen 3 folds.

    Can you explain that please...

    As we can see that the thread is almost dead for 2-3 months

    i would like to reignite the discussion on indian infrastructure with some basic questions??

    What do we consider as infrastructure ???
    What do we consider as necessary basic infrastructure projects required on our country???
    Why is it that we are fixated with tall high rise glass buildings, bullet trains, why do they hog the lime light, why do they make the headlines ignoring some basic things etc ???

    i am asking these questions as most of the time you see these are the projects that get talked about, printed in news papers, shown on TV and discussed as being required for our country

    Consider the facts as under

    India has a population of 1.25 billion people, expected to grow to 1.40 billion people
    India is not able to provide 24 * 7 * 365 , quality electricity to its people
    India is not able to supply the required amount of water to its people
    India is not able to supply clean, potable drinking water let alone the required amount of clean drinking water to its people.
    India is not able to supply the required irrigation to its fertile land - most of the farms are rain fed
    India is not able to supply its citizens with enough food grains
    India is not able to store properly the food grains it procures through FCI (food corporation of India) most of it rots away.
    India is not able to convert this food stock in value added products
    India wastes away more than 40% of its fruit production annually ( by the way this 40% that is wasted and rotten away is more than the annual fruit consumption of THE WHOLE OF EUROPE put together)
    India's Road network length has not increased substantially within the last decade
    India's Rail network has not increased much since independence ( i dont have exact nos but i dont think it has even doubled since independence)
    In many parts of India - during rains it pour lot of water, flooding happens, water is drained into the sea - during summer there is shortage of water for irrigation/ drinking etc.
    Urbanisation without corresponding increase in the basic amenities in the urbanising city.
    Lowering of underground water tables

    Ahmedabad - Mumbai corridor is the busiest in traffic volumes, density etc for both - rail as well as road.


    so what do we require addressing these basic issues to secure our future or investment in high profile show piece projects or a judicial balance of both.

    Contrary to what we may say, think etc that these are big issues and requires big solutions - if we apply some mind, we may/can come up with some improvisations / JUGAAD type solutions that can be game changers without being high cost in terms of money time etc

    i think that instead of following the projects of Japan, China, France, Germany we should focus on our country and focus on Infra that caters of our immediate and future needs that are currently not being met

    For any development we need transportation, And this current GoI has made 18K roads in past decades where NDA has done 47K roads in 5 year period. SO naturally we cant get the goods reach in all nook and corners. So infra is a big -ve...

    Infra - does not mean only roads or transportation

    Also building more roads or rails is one of the Solutions NOT the ONLY solution

    if we talk about new roads - even NDA govt had not fared better -
    the 47K kms of roads that the NDA talks about are not new roads - the Golden Quadrilateral and NS EW roads are not new roads they are existing roads only what NDA has done is made them part of National Highways - Expanded them from 2/4 lane to 4 lane , remade them upto national Higways standard.

    When NDA says that they have made 47k Km of roads it means that they have done work (converted 2/4 lane to 4/6 lane, improved quality of roads) of total length of 47k Kms of roads. It does not mean that they have built additional 47k Km of roads.

    If you doubt my statement just check the total length of roads in the country when NDA gone out of power Substract the total length of road existing in the country when NDA came to power if the difference is 47k km then my above explanation is wrong otherwise my above explanation is correct

    there are many aspects to infra also - there is a requirement of JUGAAD type solutions, so many of which are possible.
