 Government of India Ministry of Road Transport & Highways 12th Five Year Plan - (2012-17)

At present, National Highway network of about 71,772 km comprises only 1.7% of the total length of roads, but carries over 40% of the total traffic across the length and breadth of the country.
Considering the target growth rate of about + 9 %, it is estimated that the total target NH network of about 85,000 km may be considered as reasonable for the 12th Five Year Plan, for the development of the regions which are not connected by NHs.

At present, out of 71,772 km of National Highways about 24% length is of 4-lane and above standard, 52% length is of 2-lane standard and 24% length of single and intermediate standard.
As on July, 2011, 28,740 km lengths of NHs were entrusted to NHAI, 38,629 km to State PWDs and 3,565 km to BRO. As more and more works are awarded under various phases of NHDP and subsequent phases of NHDP are taken up, additional length of NHs will be transferred from State PWDs to NHAI.

 Transforming India's transport sector - February 2012

In most countries around the globe, the use of GPS is synonymous with in-vehicle navigation systems to give driving directions and other related information
such as street maps and points ofinterest. In India, the most common way to find directions to an unknown destination may be to roll down the car window and ask the guy on the sidewalk. However, as roads become well documented, even this is changing rapidly to mirror the trends in developed countries.

Although the use of GPS and personal navigation devices (PNDs) for finding driving directions in India has picked up only during the past 5-6 years, its use as a productivity tool has been in vogue in the enterprise world for nearly a decade. Before technology gave fleet owners the freedom to track their vehicles in real time, drivers could make unwarranted pit stops, take extra long hours for eating/sleeping and still remain undetected.

GPS enabled on-board computers to track field vehicles and wirelessly communicate that information to a software service to deliver a host of business productivity tools emerged as an enterprise software category in the early part of last decade under the broadly accepted
name of mobile resource management (MRM). This business value applied equally to everyone from owner operated small businesses to large transportation and logistics companies. According to current estimates, the total MRM revenue worldwide is estimated at a whopping USD
3-4 bn. While MRM has tremendous utility for all organisations that have mobile assets, a common view is that it does deliver a clear return on investment (ROI) for the business. A good case in point here is of a recent study by Aberdeen Group, a well known industry analyst
firm, which concluded that businesses that implemented the right MRM solution increased work order completion per employee per day by over 25 percent in two years.

Airport Opportunities in India - December 2010

India is the seventh largest country in the world and second biggest in Asia. With an area of 3.29 million square kilometres and apopulation of over one billion, it is essential that its transport infrastructure is developed to ensure the continuance of economic growth. The Indian government continues to attach high priority to improving the country’stransport infrastructure, particularly theairports.
The needs of an increasingly urban population, coupled with significant increases in industrial, trade and commercial demands have placed immense strain on the country’s transportinfrastructure.
So some of the key reasons for focussing on the airports sector in India are:
• Opportunities arising out of privatization of airports in India
• Focus on PPP models opens up many opportunities
• Focus on Tier II airports andgovernment focus to develop new and upgrade existing airports.

Ports Opportunities in India - December 2010

India has a coast line of over 7000 Kms with a maritime tradition dating back several centuries. It has twelve major ports under the jurisdiction of the central government and one hundred and eighty seven non-major ports which are controlled by the respective state governments.
The port privatisation policy announced by the Government of India in October 1996 offers a number of opportunities for British companies engaged in port consultancy, construction, management and turnkey contracts. Thegeneral layout of the facilities in the older ports is outdated and the facilities are not suitable for modern cargo handling.
There is ample scope to increase the capacity of existing facilities through modernisation and improvements in productivity and construction of new berths. The value of such projects would range from £2million to £700 million.

India is the seventh largest country in the world and second biggest in Asia. With an area of 3.29 million square Kms and a population of over one billion, it is essential that its transport infrastructure is developed to ensure the continuance of economic growth. The Indian government continues to attach high priority to improving the country's transport infrastructure, particularly the airports.
The importance of integrated multi-modal transport system for India cannot be overestimated. The needs of an increasingly urban population, coupled with significant increases in industrial, trade and commercial demands have placed immense strain on the country's transport infrastructure. With an emphasis on the production of high value - added goods and services such as pharmaceuticals and ICT, the need for a good quality domestic and international air transport infrastructure for passengers and cargo continues to be essential.
Primary responsibility for the development and management of airports rests with the Central/State governments. The airport sector is now increasingly opening up to the private sector. Two green-field international airports at Bangalore and Hyderabad, which were developed by the private sector on BOT (Build Operate and Transfer) basis, have already commenced operations. Also, two metro airports at New Delhi and Mumbai were privatised and handed over 30 year concession to private sector organisations Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) led by GVK group and Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) led by GMR group.

Ports and Logistics Sector Report - October 2009

An expert group set up by the Government of India (GoI) has forecasted overall port traffic to reach about 900 million MT by 2011/12 from 500m MT in 2006/07. The creation of additional port capacity and the back up infrastructure to meet traffic projection targets, GoI has announced major Initiative - Rs 550 bn (£7 bn) " National Maritime Development Project" (NMDP) on the lines of highly successful National Highway Development Programme (NHDP). The NMDP project, to be completed in next 6 years, envisages setting up of new ports, modernisation of the existing ones and connecting all ports with national highways. The Shipping Ministry also has plans to appoint a law firm to prepare a model concession agreement for Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects to be awarded on BOT basis in major ports in India.
The impact of the government policy on privatisation of ports and allowing 100% FDI has been immediate. The sector has seen significant levels of FDI from several international port developers / operators. In 1999, the government awarded the first ever concession to P&O Ports on 30 year Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis for operation of Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal at JNPT near Mumbai. P&O Ports (now DP World) is the largest international investor in ports in India. There are many UK companies operating successfully in this market in the areas of port consultancy, port management, material handling, port construction etc.

Aerospace (Civil) Sector Report - September 2009

Aerospace Sector Advisory Group to UKTI acknowledged India as a priority market for the UK.
The Indian Aerospace (Civil) sector has for years been overshadowed by the Indian Aerospace (Defence) sector. The private Aerospace sector overshadowed by the Government-owned Aerospace sector. This imbalance is being corrected, but expectations needs to be managed with regards to the speed in which opportunities available to UK companies can translate in to business. 
For many UK companies, the relationship with the Indian Aerospace Defence sector is long and deep. For example, Rolls Royce and BAE Systems have been in India for over 70 years. India's military budget for 2009-10 is worth $28.4 bn which is a 24 per cent increase when compared to last year.
The Indian biennial air show in Bangalore, Aero India, has become a showcase for global Aerospace companies and an essential meet for their supply chains. The last Aero India, 11-15 February 2009, witnessed the Russian Mig-35, Boeing F16 and f18, Eurofighter, Dassault Rafale and Saab Gripen jostling for position in anticipation for the Indian Air Force's $11bn tender for 126 new multi-role combat fighters.

Marine Sector Report - September 2009

The Indian Shipping industry comprises more than 774 vessels (Overseas and Coastal), with a gross tonnage of 13.9 million GRT and is ranked 15th in the world.  India with a coastline of 7516 km carries about 90% of its external trade by volume and 70% by value via the sea route. The contribution of Indian Shipyards to this has been around 10%.  Predominantly government - owned, Indian shipyards suffer form poor utilisation of their assets, few orders and a high cost of manufacturing.  The net worth of many shipyards, particularly the ones under public sector control, has gradually eroded.
There are 7 government shipyards, 24 private sector shipyards and 34 Indian ship-owners.  It is estimated that about 40% of the Indian fleet are aged over 20 year old.  Current annual expenditure on import of equipment by Indian commercial shipbuilding industry (other than naval shipbuilding) is estimated at INR 2.5 billion (£31.25 million). 
Over the years, the public sector shipyards have operated in a somewhat protected market, catering only to the captive demand from various domestic shipping companies and government agencies. During the decades of 1970s & 80s, the government had made it mandatory for Indian Shipping companies to source their ships from Indian Shipyards and encouraged them to do so by subsidies and other tax concessions. A subsidy of 30% based on International price parity still continues for the shipbuilding sector. However, these fiscal measures are inadequate to give necessary boost to the still nascent industry.  Indian shipyards remain largely insulated from the present boom in shipping & the shipbuilding industry.  Lately it is seen that various shipyards are now recording an increase of exports over its domestic sales.

Learning Curves - Focusing on Results in the Transport Sector of India - September 2007

Transport connects resources and markets, diversifies production, develops trade, and in so doing facilitates economic growth. can also benefit the poor.
The Government of India has made efforts to modernize, expand, and integrate transport in India. Notwithstanding the robust development outlook, billions of dollars are needed to sustain these efforts. As it improves public sector performance and accountability and acts as enabler rather than producer, the Government can mobilize private sector participation to bridge the resource gap and increase operational and managerial efficiency.
