CRISIL launched the CRISIL InfraInvex, India's first investability index that tracks, measures and assesses the development, maturity and investment attractiveness of infrastructure sectors, along with the CRISIL Infrastructure Yearbook 2017, a first-of-its-kind annual publication.
For years now, the government has been doing the heavy lifting in terms of infrastructure investments. However, having only the public investment cylinder firing is not good enough. Accelerating private sector investments is an essential complementarity, and the other cylinder that needs to fire. The CRISIL Infrastructure Yearbook 2017 underlines this aspect, and says India needs to spend at least Rs 50 lakh crore between fiscals 2018 and 2022 to build out its infrastructure sustainably.
