Several newspapers have noted that, as per the monthly report of the ministry of statistics and programme implementation for September 2021, about 438 infrastructure projects, each with an outlay of ₹150 crore or more, have a total cost over-run of around ₹4.3 trillion. That is roughly an average of ₹1,000 crore per project. Even if that is lower by 10%, it would mean saving ₹43,800 crore, clearly a non-trivial sum.
