How Modi government's multi-model infrastructure development is giving a big push to the real estate sector
Easy fund flow and 'infrastructure first' approach adopted by the Modi government has helped real estate growth across India.
In line with its aim to enter the $5 trillion club economy by 2025 – which is highly dependent on real estate and infrastructure – the Modi government has taken a multi-modal approach towards infrastructure development in the country over the last five years. Besides boosting the overall economy, this 'infrastructure first' approach is also steering real estate growth across India, say experts.
Speaking on the matter Anuj Puri - ANAROCK Property Consultants says, “Infrastructure is the lifeline of a country’s economy. The continued financial and policy support from the Government over the past 5 years is a testimony to its unrelenting focus on this sector and its inherent benefits. With more policies focused towards development of roads and highways, railways, ports, airports, urban infrastructure and industrial corridors, India has garnered a uniquely proactive positioning globally." However, Puri didn't fail to point out that the sector still faces several challenges pertaining to clearances, delays, etc. which need to be urgently addressed.

“Despite it's proactive via various policies favouring all-round development of physical infrastructure, the Government must focus on implementation and the fastest-possible pace,” said Anuj Puri of ANAROCK Property Consultants.
