The purpose of this is to make sure that there is uniformity in approach and in the terms on lending. With this infrastructure projects could easily be granted the loan they need for their infrastructure projects.

For the record, the country is definitely not doing well when it comes to infrastructure which is also the reason why growth is not quite experienced in the country. The estimated investment for this to be addressed well is about USD 1 trillion from year 2012-2017. In this investment, it is calculated that the private sector would contribute about 50 per cent of this.
