‘Modi’fied India



This summer was filled with tremendous energy as India was in election mode. In a clear battle between dynasty and development, it was development that triumphed.. The past 48 months have seen the government implement various schemes and programmes for India’s overall development. The Prime Minister’s brain child of affordable housing- Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), has grabbed the people’s attention. Also, the construction of roads to link villages has had a significant impact. This factor along with the focus on rural employment, through MNREGA, has been an impelling cause. The Gram Jyoti Yojana, has served to supply full-time electricity supply to the rural population. All this has resulted in Modi bagging a massive mandate.



However, the work of completely ‘Modi’fying India is not yet over with lot more to be done. Creating new opportunities for employment, the government is focused to ensure that 50 cities are covered with a strong metro network and to construct 60,000 kms of National Highways. The target is to make capital investment of ` 100 lakh crore in the infrastructure sector; to announce a new industrial policy to improve competitiveness of manufacturing and services. The government is also committed to make India a $5 trillion economy by 2025 and $10 trillion economy by 2032.



The government granted infrastructure status to the warehousing and logistics industry. This much awaited and needed move will assist the players in this sunrise sector in enhancing their limits. With the 9th edition of India Warehousing Show scheduled from 20 – 22 June at Pragati Maidan, Delhi, the stage is set for enhancing the sector and attracting investments. Construction Opportunities is glad to be the official publication partner for this mega expo.



The Indian diesel gensets market is projected to reach $ 1.5 billion by 2024. This anticipated growth can be attributed to growing number of huge government sponsored projects, such as 100 smart cities, AMRUT , freight corridor & national highways. The growth of power and cement industries aid the growth of the entire mining fraternity. With commercial and industrial office buildings consuming nearly 30 per cent of world’s energy, it’s hard to overlook the impact of smart building innovation in the built environment.




With a lot happening and set to happen, this month is full of reading material and we are certain that you will have a wonderful read !
