“Till 2040, the population of India will increase by 30 crore. This figure is more than the population of America. This means we will have to build enough infrastructure in the next 25 years which America has built in 300 years. We will have to ponder on how much of this infrastructure is to be built in which cities. But we cannot have a correct estimation of this measurement at this stage because we don’t know the percentage increase the cities will witness in the coming times.”
