The problem in the world today is the lack of demand whereas the problem in India is the management of demand. All means of transport are heavily used but underdeveloped in comparison to international standards. Although this sector is the backbone of an economy it is riddled due to outdated infrastructure. It is estimated that at least USD 1.7 trillion per year has to be spent on developing infrastructure if India has to sustain a long-term growth in the economy.
