India has standardised itself for 7-8 pc growth, says Arun Jaitley

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said improved macroeconomic fundamentals have placed India on 7-8 per cent growth trajectory and the country needs big infrastructure investments over next two decades to evolve into a middle income economy and then into a developed one.

The funding requirement for infrastructure in the country is huge and there is a requirement of a whopping Rs 50 lakh crore investment in the sector over next five years, he said.

India has spent Rs 60 lakh crore in infrastructure during 2007-17.

Stating that India has been the fastest growing major economy in the last three years, Jaitley said, \"We do hope that in the first instance we evolve into a middle income economy and subsequently we graduate into a developed economy.

\"That\'s the economic roadmap that we have for us. If we have to aspire to reach this, India will need to upgrade infrastructure over the next two decades. We need a lot of investment and we will need a lot of spending,\" he said while delivering 5th Annual Defence Estates Day lecture here.
