The Infrastructure sector plays a pivotal role in propelling India’s economic expansion by fostering the progress of interconnected domains like townships, housing, constructed infrastructure, and developmental construction projects. In the pursuit of achieving a $5 trillion economy by 2025, prioritizing infrastructure development is of paramount importance. To facilitate this, the government has introduced the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP), in conjunction with other strategic initiatives such as the ‘Make in India’ campaign and the production-linked incentives (PLI) program. These endeavors collectively bolster the growth of the infrastructure sector.
Traditionally, over 80% of the nation’s infrastructure expenditure has been allocated to fund transportation, electricity, water, and irrigation projects. The National Infrastructure Pipeline is distributed among the Center, State, and Private sectors with shares of 39%, 39%, and 22% respectively (Source: CareEdge Report).
The Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), initiated by the Indian government on August 15, 2019, aims to provide Functional Household Tap Connections (FHTC) to ensure access to safe and sufficient drinking water for every rural household in the country by 2024. Simultaneously, the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) 2.0 strives to secure and enhance water availability in urban areas through source conservation, water body and well revitalization, treated water recycling, reuse, and rainwater harvesting. These measures are intended to fortify urban water systems, ensuring their security and self-sustainability (Source: CareEdge Report).
