India Rural Infrastucture Report


This is a definitive report on the state of rural infrastructure in the four major sectors of power; telecommunications; roads and transport; and water and sanitation. Based on primary data collected through a nationwide survey, this report aims to resolve some of the contradictions that have stymied the expansion of infrastructure in rural India with the aim of encouraging balanced regional growth of rural infrastructure. It proposes forming public-private partnerships; greater decentralization of regulation and ownership; greater reliance on user fees to recover costs; and greater use of microfinance.
