All the funds were provided from tax revenue through budget provisions. As far as requirement of huge financial resources is concerned, the quality and efficiency of government created infrastructure used to be low because of bureaucratic way of working and natural apathy of government working. Due to highly increased expenditure on establishment and diversion of public financial resources towards short term, popular and politically important gains, the infrastructure development was denied of resources. These demands huge capital requirement and have long gestation periods, apart from being highly risky ventures, have even private sector funding was not forthcoming.
