Abstract
Infrastructure projects in India are currently worth around $500 million according to the 11th five year plan. Also a huge number of these projects are getting delayed invariably. According to the MoSPI reports the cost overruns in the on-going projects are larger than the three consecutive fiscal packages announced during 2008-09! This is indicative of the fact that the causes of delays and their implications on the cost and time overruns warrant the need of studying. 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. As a part of data collection, the study includes the random sample of road, railway, and civilian airport and sea ports. 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.
