India’s transport sector caters to the needs of 5.9 billion people should give you a hint of its size. In 2018, according to the World Bank the sector contributed about 15 percent to the nation’s GDP, with road transportation contributing the lion’s share.
The demand for transport infrastructure and services has been rising at over 10% every year. And it is obvious the current services infrastructure isn’t ready to cope with the increase in demand.
