Overview

  • India has an impressive network of transport system comprising of rail, road, ship, inland waterway, air etc.
  • The network has expanded rapidly since independence (1947)
  • Today, India a network of 63,518 km Railways, 3,319,644 Km highways, and 16,180 Km waterways
  • The growth, though impressive, could not keep pace with India's rapidly growing domestic and international trade, leading to bottleneck in infrastructure sector
  • As a result, growth of Indian foreign trade suffered to some extent, particularly in the 1990s
  • Govt of India, aware of the shortcoming, has taken a number of steps including a liberal regime for foreign multinational investment in infrastructure sector
  • An ambitious plan to connect all major Indian cities through a national grid of 4-lane interstate highways (Golden Quadrilateral) is under implementation
  • Another highlight is Govt incentive for massive private and and multinational investment in port development
  • The new millennium signals a new era in Indian export when increasing liberalization and globalization, advent of Internet and e-commerce, helpful Govt Policy, entry of large number of multinational companies, foreign investment and host of other favourable factors are going to make India surge ahead in international trade
  • We intend to disseminate information that is helpful to all those who have an active interest in Indian business and industry
