Below is Perspective on PM Modi’s GatiShakti – National Master Plan announced today by Mr. Rajeev Vijay, Executive Director, Government and Infrastructure Advisory at Knight Frank India
“The National Master plan is to lay a foundation for holistic infrastructure and give an integrated pathway for delivery of infrastructure and create robust institutional framework for integrated planning, implementation and digital monitoring using integrated KPI design for such projects. The National Master Plan is sure to transform the infrastructure sector and provide integrated, seamless, timely delivery of infrastructure projects within budgeted costs without any costs of delays and cost overruns due to multiple changes. It will further motivate private companies to associate with government projects and boost the Indian economy.
PM GatiShakti plan holistically integrates all road, railways, airports and multi-modal connectivity projects. The plan removes the missing gaps for a seamless and efficient conduct of logistics and economic activity by minimizing disruptions. GatiShakti will incorporate the infrastructure schemes of various Union ministries and state governments — Bharatmala, Sagarmala, UDAN, inland waterways, dry/land ports etc. The plan will also ensure quick completion of works with cost efficiency. The idea is to get all relevant stakeholders aligned for creating the right size infrastructure at a suitable location expeditiously – right from visioning, planning to execution and O&M.”
