About the smallcase

The infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy as it is responsible for propelling India’s overall development and enjoys the intense focus of the government. The infrastructure sector has a multiplier effect ranging from 1.2 to 1.5 times on the GDP i.e. for every rupee spent on infrastructure, the economy grows by an additional ₹1.2 to ₹1.5.

In just a decade, from 2013 to 2023, the percentage of the total budget allocated to infrastructure has surged from 13% to an impressive 22%.

The Indian government has been actively promoting infrastructure development through various initiatives such as the PM Gati Shakti (multi-modal logistics development), Bharatmala Project (road development), Sagarmala Project (port-led development), Smart Cities Mission, AMRUT (urban infrastructure), and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (housing for all). These initiatives provide a strong impetus for infrastructure growth.

100% FDI is permitted under the automatic route across various infrastructure sectors. FDI in the construction development sector (townships, housing, built-up infrastructure, and construction development projects) and construction (infrastructure) activities stood at $26.23 bn and $28.95 bn, respectively, between April 2000 and September 2022
