That is good news - especially the part that states that India lags on the infrastructure front. That only goes to show that once the new policies (that have been in the pipeline since forever!) are implemented we will be that much more competitive.

I really look forward to the 'implementation' stage too. Before we can see the results of a certain policy, its already the next govt and things just stop or move at snails pace from there. Stayin positive!

Kiran - are you based in India?
