Emerging Opportunities

Paradoxically, India’s biggest challenges offer greatest of opportunities . Apart from agriculture & rural sector,  urban development and infrastructure sector provides the largest scale & scope for  employment generation and socio-economic transformation.

While we debate on the approaches and priorities of urban development, this nation of more than 500 towns & cities with more than 1,00,000 residents, awaits swift organised action for creation of  requisite infrastructure to provide liveable  conditions, sustainable environment and basic services to its residents.

Never in its past has India ever witnessed   transformation on such massive scale in its towns & cities. While  demand for traditional  urban infrastructure like  housing, roads, water supply and other utilities , etc continues to grow, its the increasing demand for  new, complex , higher order infrastructure like metro rail, airports, multimodal transit hubs, ports, etc that has multiplied opportunities for investment and employment.
