Recently, Piyush Goyal, the Minister of Power, Coal and New and Renewable Energy, speaking at the World Economic Forum’s India Economic Summit 2014 said:
"Over the next five years, the Indian power sector would provide an investment potential of $250 billion of which $100 billion will come into the renewable energy sector and $50 billion for the transmission networks”.One of the biggest roadblocks facing the Indian economy has been the poor state of infrastructure in the country. It is said that lack of proper infrastructure shaves off about 2% of India's GDP growth every year. The power sector, which is the engine for growth in any economy, is facing a myriad of challenges and setbacks in India. Hence, it would be better if the current DIRECTION-LESS-NDA-GOVERNMENT, focuses more on the infrastructure sector.
