Infrastructure project budgets may exclude land cost

The government could soon give the go-ahead to excluding the cost of land while computing the total cost of infrastructure projects, a measure that will allow more ministries to clear their own projects without going through the time-consuming process of seeking the approval of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs.

All infrastructure projects costing over Rs.1,000 crore have to be approved by the CCEA and given the high cost of land, many projects will remain below the threshold if this component is not included in the project cost.
´We are expecting to get the Cabinet´s approval soon,´ said a senior official of the road transport and highways ministry, which has moved the proposal.
