Pragati Meetings finally waking up India's notoriously dysfunctional bureaucracy

Dedicated Freight Corridor
Good to see that, projects stuck on red tape started moving from there due to direct intervention by Prime minister through Pragati Meetings. Pragati meeting (usually held on fourth Wednesday of each month) generally involves officials from finance, law, land, environment, transport and energy ministries, as their approvals are required for any projects to go ahead. According to reports, PM's intervention helped to clear projects worth nearly 60bn since March.

If we focus more on execution part of projects, rather than fighting never ending ideological battles,  getting in to first 50 of World Bank's 'Ease of Doing Business' by 2017 may be feasible. To reach there we still need to climb 80 positions. Hope that we will make it.
