NHAI non-restructuring blocking foreign investment
Non-restructuring of the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) is blocking foreign investments in key areas like airports, seaports and national highways, according to Gajendra Haldea, Planning Commission Advisor.
Speaking at fuction organised by Assocham, Haldea regretted that NHAI has yet to be restructured as per recommendations made by Planning Commission. As a result not much foreign investments has been assured in areas like airports and seaports and even on national highways in which some semblance of foreign investments have gone in, Haldea said.
The NHAI should be restructured to ensure that investments especially private investments flock in the infrastructure sector as targeted by the government, felt Haldea.
