India's 2011/12 budget to support infrastructure development


India's new federal budget is likely to help companies developing airports in India, with the government raising the limit for foreign institutional investors to invest in corporate bonds specifically targetted for infrastructure from USD5 billion to USD25 billion.

The government assigned USD2 billion in funding for airport development. Air travel has not been unscathed, however, with the Union Government introducing a new service tax on air travel.

In trading yesterday, Indian infrastructure companies finished stronger, with GMR Infrastructure gaining 3.1% and GVK infrastructure up 2.1%
