Abstract
Infrastructure projects worth Rs. 1.50 billion and above, 578 projects have reported time escalations (or, in other words, delays), 400 projects reported cost overruns and 202 projects reported both time and cost overruns with respect to their original project implementation schedules, while 374 are on schedule, as in November 2021, according to the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI). About 93 projects have reported additional delays vis-Ă -vis their date of completion reported in the previous month (October 2021). Of these 93 projects, 26 are mega projects worth Rs. 10 billion. This review also discussed the groups causing delay based on the source of delay. The top five delay factors related to contractor, owner and consultant have been discussed within each category. This study covers the various causes of delays in detail, as well as delays which are caused at various stages of the project. For this study only the transportation infrastructure projects are considered. The various issues plaguing these projects are studied. The study also includes an in-depth literature review of the subject and the various works carried out on the subject. As a part of data collection, the study includes the random sample of road, railway, civilian airport and sea ports. The delays and the time and cost overruns that they have caused have been studied. Also, the locations of the projects need to be considered for drawing certain conclusions. The study basically carries a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the causes of the delays. It establishes a link to the analysis of the delays in order to quantify the severity of each type of delay with respect to the time overruns.
