Addressing the nation on the 74th Independence Day from Red Fort, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced an ambitious Rs 100 lakh crore national infrastructure pipeline (NIP) to provide new direction to the overall infrastructure development of the country.
Prime Minister Modi has identified infrastructure as a key element of India’s quest for Atmanirbhar “intent, inclusion, investment, infrastructure and innovation—these five things are important to speed up India’s development and make it ‘Atmanirbhar’. You will get a glimpse of these in the bold decisions recently taken by us” he said.
Swarajya, one of India’s leading print cum digital outlet and Construction World, India’s premier and largest circulated construction business magazine, have both been in the forefront of chronicling developments in Indian infrastructure. Both publications enjoy a great degree of traction among policy makers, analysts and subject matter commentators.
As part of our continued commitment to highlight the progress and challenges in the infrastructure domain, Swarajya and Construction World is organising a multi-part webinar series ‘Infranirbhar Bharat’ on the theme of Indian infrastructure beginning February 22.
Curated by the editorial leadership of Swarajya and Construction World, the webinar series will comprise sessions on themes related to infrastructure (rail, road, metro, urbanisation, national infrastructure pipeline, high speed rails etc). Each session will be a keynote address by a policymaker followed by a 30-45 minute discussion featuring key influencers, commentators, subject matter experts and leading thinkers.
The inaugural webinar will feature a keynote on ‘The vision and roadmap for Indian metro systems’ by Union Minister for Housing, Urban Development And Civil Aviation, Hardeep S Puri.
The inaugural session will be moderated by Aashish Chandorkar, noted policy commentator and author.
