The task force on the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) on 29 April submitted its final report to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

The report, which comes in three volumes, contains recommendations on general and sector reforms relating to key infrastructure sectors for implementation by Centre and states in India.

The task force has projected total infrastructure investment of over Rs 111 lakh crore during the period FY 2019-25 to make India a $5 trillion economy.

“The NIP shall be helpful in providing quality and adequate infrastructure as well as economic growth,” the Finance Ministry said in a tweet.

The task force, in its detailed report, has given recommendations on changes required to several key sectoral policies and other reform initiatives needed by Central and state governments.

Prasanna Viswanathan and Aashish Chandorkar discuss what it would take to realise this grand Indian dream.
