Cost of 268 projects overshoots Rs50,000 crore due to delay: Govt

New Delhi: The government today admitted to cost overruns to the tune of Rs50,295 crore in 268 of 578 ongoing projects, but did not give details of the timeframe for implementation, reports PTI.

As of April this year, cost overruns in these 268 projects touched Rs50,295 crore, minister of state for statistics and programme implementation (MOSPI) Sriprakash Jaiswal said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.

The projects in question were all worth above Rs150 crore.

The main reason for cost and time overrun include delay in procurement of equipment, law and order problems, inadequate infrastructure and rise in input cost, Mr Jaiswal said.

The cost overrun of these projects is 16.5% of their original approved costs, the statement said.

Last Month, Mr Jaiswal had said in a reply to the same house that of 631 ongoing projects, costing Rs100 crore and above being monitored by MOSPI, as many as 327 delayed projects reported a total cost overrun of Rs52,213 crore till March end this year.

It was stated in the reply last month that the cost overrun of these projects was 15.8% of their original approved costs.

One has to wonder how such projects are planned that now 150 crore worth projects are going to cost another 50 crores names 33% increment and projects are not completed.
Was the Govt not ware of lack of infrastructure or thought it will come from heaven. One starts wondering the capability of such planners or is there something else going on. Is there any accountability of such projects.
One starts asking questions to oneself, if we are fools to accept such lame excuses

We are listening!
