Three Challenges facing India’s Infrastructure Development

BCG’s Suresh Subudhi highlights three challenges facing India’s infrastructure development—infrastructure financing, the failure of public-private partnerships, and a heavy reliance on infrastructure creation over a mix of creation and asset optimization. Investments in infrastructure are a key enabler for both economic and social growth, but infrastructure creation is also a slow process, he cautions. New technologies that accelerate the preparation of new infrastructure projects will unleash value in India and reduce the financing deficit at a faster pace.

Suresh Subudhi came to The Boston Consulting Group in 2005. He is a core member of the Industrial Goods and Operations practices and focuses his work in those two areas. Suresh has assisted clients in the cement, infrastructure, and steel industries on a variety of assignments including strategy, procurement, manufacturing, sales and marketing, and organization transformation. He leads BCG's work in building materials and infrastructure in Asia-Pacific. Suresh also specializes in infrastructure topics within BCG, coleading the Center for Mobility Innovation, which is a team of urban mobility experts and digital business builders.

Specifically within BCG India, Suresh concentrates on the infrastructure, cement, and steel sector and covers issues such as operations excellence, large-project management, market entry and growth strategy, organization development, regulations, and M&A.

Suresh has also worked in North America, Europe, and Asia. Before joining BCG, he held positions with Accenture, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Trilogy.
