Delhi airport amongst top 100 infrastructure projects: KPMG

Three ongoing Indian infrastructure projects have made it to KPMG's Infrastructure 100 Report. The report includes 100 most exciting infrastructure projects from around the world, as selected by independent judging panels due to their scale, complexity, innovation and impact on society. The report has been brought by KPMG's Global Infrastructure practice, in conjunction with Infrastructure Journal.

Projects in the developing world - said a statement - were favoured by the judging panel largely due to their socioeconomic impact.

Amongst Indian projects that made it to the list include Delhi Airport which is world's 6th largest airport, Reliance's KG-6 Gas basin development and one Ultra Mega Power Project.

The role of an international sporting event as the catalyst for big-ticket investments in airports was undeniably the driver for the New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport expansion which was to be made ready in time for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India. This airport was taken over by the GMR-led Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) team. It is being upgraded and modernised while still functioning, then operated under a 30-year concession. Not only this mega project delivered a world-class facility, it has been completed in record time. Focus of developing nations such as India on reducing Carbon footprint is also commendable. The Delhi Indira Gandhi International airport can now boast of about 1 million planted trees.

For similar reasons India's KG-D6 development became a clear candidate worthy of particular note for its impact on the fast developing South Asian economy. The project, and accompanying East-West Pipeline, will provide India with 50 per cent of its current gas consumption and will transform the consumption pattern of various carbon fuels.

The 4,000MW Mundra plant also made it to top 100 list.
