Infra funding takes centrestage at webinar

Infrastructure Urban

Captains of industry shared their ideas on Tuesday about infrastructure funding, inadequacies of the present system and way forward at “Financing National Infrastructure Pipeline”, the second webinar of the Infra-Nirbhar series organised by Construction World and Swarajya magazines. Dr TV Somanathan, Secretary (Expenditure), Union Ministry of Finance, was the keynote speaker.

In his keynote address Somanathan explained why infrastructure finance cannot consider only an internal rate of return, but must look at it from a wider social returns perspective.
