According to CMIE’s CapEx database, 490 new investment proposals with investments worth Rs.768 billion were announced in December 2017 quarter. These were lowest recorded since June 2004 quarter. Announcement of new project proposals dropped sharply in fiscal 2017-18. In the first 3 quarters of current fiscal, 1,721 projects with investments worth Rs.4 trillion were announced as against 2,517 projects with investments worth 9.2 trillion announced in April-December 2016.

Completions of new capacities were also lower by 19 per cent on a y-o-y basis. 300 projects with investments worth Rs.769 billion were commissioned.
