Budget implications for the Indian infrastructure sector


By: Arvind Mahajan and Manish Aggarwal, KPMG in India
 
Shri Arun Jaitely, Finance Minister of India, presented his first budget on 10 July to Parliament. Overall, the budget will have a positive influence on India’s infrastructure sector. It provides a clear direction for the resolution of some major issues affecting the sector, including the establishment of a road map for the long-term development of key infrastructure segments, especially rural and urban infrastructure, and attempts to address specific sector issues around power, roads, mining and urban transport, while providing stimulus for the renewable energy segment.
