A propulsion system of the Indian economy is the infrastructure sector. The industry is highly responsible for driving the overall growth of India and enjoys intense government focus on initiating policies that will ensure the time-bound creation of the country’s world-class infrastructure.For faster economic growth and the alleviation of poverty in the world, infrastructure is critical. For the integration of the Indian economy with other economies of the world, adequate infrastructure in the form of road and rail transport systems, ports, electricity, airports and their efficient functioning is also important.
The provision of high-quality infrastructure increases the amount of efficiency in the economy and decreases market costs.
What is Infrastructure?
Infrastructure is an organisational resource system that is required to run a society or business. It’s essential to recognize infrastructure as hard or soft. Hard infrastructure consists of physical structures such as transportation, telecommunications, electricity, and water supply and sanitation that are required for a country to function. Soft infrastructure refers to institutions such as education, banking, administration, emergency, and healthcare structures that preserve the health, economic and social conditions of a country. Business seems to be mostly concerned with hard infrastructure because it has a detrimental influence; soft infrastructure, however has a secondary effect and is also essential. Let us elaborate 5 major reasons why good infrastructure is necessary for the growth of your business.
1. Increased Productivity
Companies will manufacture goods in line with the demands of the inhabitants of various regions and countries with improved infrastructure.
Commercial property and construction only succeeds when it is accompanied by modern infrastructure. Infrastructure is required to get people to and from home, work, shop and have business-essential utilities: water, electricity, internet. Investment is imperative. If the infrastructure is clogged or unreliable, there are economic losses incurred.
2. Facilitates Transportation & Telecommunication
The shortage of roads and highways can be a challenging and expensive obstacle to tackle for developing countries. Industrialized economies, however, have existing road networks and highways. For many of these countries, the question of road quality, capability and limitation of back-ups and traffic is becoming a concern. Some businesses depend on the highway system to deliver their goods to all shops around the nation, so their supply of merchandise will be dramatically disrupted by delays or poor road conditions.Telecommunications also transformed industries around the globe drastically. India, for example, has traditionally been renowned for its textiles and garments. India is now known for outsourced telemarketing, customer service hotlines, and other phone-related businesses as the telecommunications infrastructure has evolved. The number of digital nomads, people who make a living using technology while travelling or living abroad, has also risen in telecommunications.
Companies may recruit individuals of excellent caliber but if they are limited to their location the business productivity gets hindered. Businesses hence, often tend to lower their prices as they do not have significant office room overheads.
3. Energy Sources of the country
Energy infrastructure applies not only to energy generation, but also to storage and delivery as well. Energy infrastructure networks include energy-transporting pipelines, pipes, waterways, railways, and other structures. There is a need for companies to be vigilant about the utility of resources as well as energy infrastructure and invest in refurbishing existing infrastructure for business growth.
Developed countries need to be concerned with obsolete electricity resources and the expense associated with diverse sources of energy.
4. Protection & Sanitization
A well managed business infrastructure promotes better protection and sanitization especially during a pandemic crisis. In a fully integrated business hub, safe drinking water can be provided. Proper sanitary products may be provided in the toilets and washrooms, such as hand sanitizers, tissues, etc. Guidelines for operating and using equipment are specifically laid down. In order to ensure adequate security and preserve the health of employees, employers can also plan regular pest management activities.
Investments in infrastructure work as a multiplier of factors in which the capital invested in the building business premises not only produces the “hardware” for the growth of a country, but also results in a steady development because there is tremendous sums of money are expended on building materials, salaries, and other raw materials production that make those businesses grow faster.
There are no substitutes for the development of infrastructure and no shortcuts are appropriate for faster economic growth. It is only when these aspects are taken care of that nations evolve and there are opportunities seeking to rise and leapfrog into the elite group of developing nations for India and other Asian nations.Therefore, if developed countries were not to invest in all elements of the infrastructure aspect, their growth would be slow and cumbersome, and they would miss the bus again and lose out in the economic competitiveness race.
