It is necessary to check the growth rate in various fields of infrastructure development. Covering all infrastructure sectors will be beyond the scope of the paper. Paper primary attempts to cover major infrastructure sector viz. railways, roads, and electricity. Major focus is to take the stock of present situation and compare the growth over a period of pre and post reform period to test the impact of reform in growth of infrastructure development in India.
