The India Investment Grid (IIG) team supported the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) and the Ministry of Finance in conducting a mid-term review of the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) FY20-25. All infrastructure ministries were reviewed on their targeted vs actual capital expenditure, along with the status of projects bid out to date.
The review was chaired by the Joint Secretary (Infra Policy and Planning), DEA, who emphasized the importance of data monitoring through the IIG-NIP portal for deciding budgetary allocations. Senior officials of 22 infra ministries, including railways, roads and highways, power, petroleum and natural gas, housing and urban affairs, ports and shipping, presented the status of their respective projects. Such real-time monitoring through the IIG-NIP portal helps capture information relevant to investors and boost investment in the country.
