Infrastructure in India: Challenges and Opportunities - Gajendra Haldea February 14, 2008 New Delhi
2 Infrastructure Deficit §Highways l 66,590 Km of NH (2% of network, 40% of traffic): only 12% Four- lane; 50% Two-lane; and 38% Single-lane §Ports l Inadequate berths, rail / road connectivity and draft are constraints §Airports l Inadequate capacity: Runways, aircraft handling capacity, parking space & terminal buildings §Railways l Old technology; saturated routes: slow average speeds (freight: 22 kmph; passengers: 50 kmph); low payload to Tare ratio (2.5) §Power l 13.8% peaking deficit and 9.6% energy shortage; 40% T&D losses; absence of competition; and inadequate private investment
