This is because some of the factors dampening construction activity in FY2012/13 - namely non-conducive monetary conditions, lacklustre infrastructure activity, and political risk - remain pertinent and have grown in prominence in recent months. That said, we believe a medium-term recovery could take place in India's construction sector and this is primarily due to the potential for an improvement in India's monetary conditions and regulatory climate.

- In September 2013, Maharashtra State Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan confirmed that the Mumbai Metro line 2 project has been cancelled due to failure of the 'Build-Own-Operate-Transfer' model in metro projects. The state government remains in dispute with Reliance Infrastructure over the Mumbai Metro 1 project, with the company seeking a fare increase and advertising rights for the project.
- In October 2013, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) received five bids for the construction of a 4.5 km-long bridge for the proposed Sewri-Worli elevated corridor in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Five companies that have submitted bids for the project are Gammon India, Hindustan Construction Company, Larsen & Toubro, National Construction Company and Simplex Infrastructure. The project is expected to enhance connectivity between the eastern and western suburbs in Mumbai. The project, estimated to cost INR4.9bn (US$79.95mn), is scheduled to start in early 2014, with completion expected within 48 months from the date of awarding the contract.
- In October 2013, the railway ministry of India officially established the High Speed Rail Corporation of India (HSRC). The state-owned enterprise, initially formed in July 2012, will be a wholly owned subsidiary of state-owned Rail Vikas Nigam (RVNL), a special purpose vehicle that carries out the construction works for state-owned railway operator Indian Railways. HSRC is expected to co-exist with the High-Speed Rail Authority of India (HSRA). The latter is expected to determine the framework and the scope of works needed for India's high-speed railway plans, with the former executing these decisions. The first objective of HSRC is to prepare studies and specifications for the proposed Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed line.
