Post the pandemic, infrastructure will be the key driver of economic development in the country. The Indian government has unveiled a series of measures to boost spend on infrastructure. For example, the Government of India is likely to give an aggressive push to a series of infrastructure projects as part of its INR 111 Lakh Crore National Infrastructure Pipeline. Further, giving thrust to the sector, the Government of India has already pledged INR 15 Lakh Crore for Road and Highway construction across the country, in the next two years.

Similarly, several steps have been taken to enable the real estate sector survive the crisis. Measures such as short term relief by banks on outstanding loans, institutional funding by RBI with heavy focus on commercial real-estate, and extension of the timeline for the completion of projects by RERA have been announced to address the issues on the demand side. On the other hand, reduction of home loan rates, expediting delivery of affordable housing under PMAY, clearance of GST/VAT refunds and IT dues and the push to Make in India in order to build an Atmanirbhar Bharat will address the supply chain disruptions.

In the post pandemic era, Infrastructure sector need to be highly predictive to absorb similar shocks in future and create opportunities for growth and employment. Therefore project prioritization, delivery strategy, building resilience in adopting the new normal, will be norm for the Construction, Cities & Territories domain worldwide.
