The Gati Shakti Yojana announced by PM Modi is a unique Infrastructure masterplan to integrate and monitor infrastructure projects with 16 departments via common dashboard. Apart from single window clearance, the Gati Shakti is also about micro targets for specific departments like railways, roadways, telecom, aviation etc. The overarching idea will be to cut down time and cost overruns, a routine feature in infrastructure projects in India.

There are aggressive goals by 2025 as the first milestone under Gati Shakti. The Gati Shakti will target 200,000 KM of national highways and 32% hike in rail freight by 2025. It also targets doubling number of airports and 37% rise in sea cargo. Gas pipeline networks will be doubled to 34,500 KM and renewable capacity upped 200% to 225 GW by 2025. The big contribution will come from de-clogging the bureaucratic hurdles in infrastructure projects.
