Infrastructure means the basic structure or facilities and capital equipment that provide the framework needed for the functioning of a country. Generally, infrastructure refers to roads, airports and other utilities. For the progress of any nation both economic and social infrastructure development plays a vital role. The Government of India has initiated different policies to develop a world class infrastructure. In India, six areas have been taken up as core or infrastructural sectors, namely, Roads and Highways, Railways, Ports, Civil Aviation, Energy and Telecommunication. There are respective ministries governing these areas of infrastructure to ensure development of world class standards. Each area of infrastructure is regulated by certain laws. The Committee on Infrastructure was constituted on 31st August, 2004 under the Chairmanship of the Prime Minister of India with the objectives of initiating policies that would ensure time-bound creation of world class infrastructure delivering services matching international standards, developing structures that maximize the role of public-private partnerships and monitoring progress of key infrastructure projects to ensure that established targets are realized.
