Construction of infrastructure in IndiaBY: Muhammed Haris | Category: India | Post Date: 2009-08-10
In India construction of infrastructure has not proved to be of much success due to the poor quality of construction. The construction of infrastructure is generally done by giving contracts to constructors. Many times, contractors give subcontracts to other contractors. When the government gives the contracts to the contractors, half of the money goes in to the pockets of politicians. Contractors take their share and re-assign the work to the subcontractors. Subcontractors take their profit and construct the infrastructures with the remaining money. Finally only 30 to 40 percent of the actual sanctioned amount is used for actual construction. So obviously the infrastructure is of inferior quality. There have even been instances where the bridges fell down even before the inauguration of the bridge was done
The maintenance of the roads are also done for name sake. Only for few days roads look fine. In actual sense we would say that, they just decorate it with outer layer. You may even keep a note of where there were damages on the roads. After few days, exactly same damages appear at the same place. Basically the work is not taken seriously and the construction that si done is of very poor quality. The sanctioned amount passes through so many hands and every hand tries to keep the maximum for itself, so by the end of it all there is no money left for good quality infrastructure.
Many times, government sanctions for reconstruction of the roads, but the contractors just fill the damages on the roads instead of constructing it from scratch. Especially when the construction has to be done in the village areas, politicians and contractors take the maximum possible amount of profit so ultimately very less or nothing is left by the time work is started. Very less construction takes place just before the elections in order to collect maximum votes, once a candidate has got selected, he does not even revert back to the people. If we have to maintain good infrastructure, we may have to conduct the elections once in every six months.
