Infrastructure is an important element for economic growth and development. Good quality infrastructures bring with it, a plethora of growth and opportunities for the citizens of the country, the government as well as private sector organizations that invest in it.
This inclusive growth is shared by the majority of the people in the country which helps reduce poverty, income deficiencies as well bring an opportunity of equality in the country. National goals and development like providing basic facilities, connecting cities and countries to supply goods and products, or to supply energy, electricity and water to the citizens, all depend on efficient infrastructures.
In the recent decade, with large investment in infrastructure has led India, becoming the second fastest growing economy in the world.
But how does Infrastructure development bring about economic growth?
This is because, construction of roads, irrigation systems, ports, airports, road systems and more can bring about growth in employment opportunities along with its various facilities to numerous industries like railways, agriculture, transport, telecommunications and so on. For example, development of roads, transport and irrigation systems in rural areas can bring about a massive change in the income flow of farmers as they can easily produce, sell and transport their goods to the city.
Adequate infrastructure development is crucial for a country’s economic development. The efficient construction and working of transport, railways, and other systems are required for the integration of the Indian economy system. This also determines the integration of the economies of other countries that associate.
The demand-supply of Power and energy supply, sanitation, transport access is fulfilled by proper infrastructure. Apart from this effectively working infrastructure helps increase productivity, reach and reliability of networks, especially when it comes to transport, rails, airports systems. It also provides better connectivity and offers access and communication through electrical systems. This saves time, energy and efforts of people and reduces the cost of the enterprises.
With all these advantages, let’s not forget that the interdependent growth of infrastructure and economy can open doors to other countries which in turn leads to expansion and improvement of transport facilities, ports and airports for foreign trade. Movement of goods, raw materials, finished products and more, are possible by suitable infrastructure which only adds to overall growth in the country’s GDP.
Lack of adequate infrastructure facilities links to poverty and lack of basic facilities like sanitation, food, electricity, and communication. This brings about a wide economic-gap between the haves and have-nots and contributes to the loss of the country’s economy.
A well-planned infrastructure system is a must for the betterment of a country. Whether it is power supply, telecommunications, transport or airways, infrastructure leads for the means for well-connectivity, opportunities for employment and protection to the struggling communities and source of money for the country. Although there are hefty investments with long gestation periods in bringing about infrastructural development in a country, these efforts pay off with
various benefits to the people, the economy and the overall development of the country.
