About 270 major infrastructure projects costing Rs. 150 crore and above are running behind schedule, the Lok Sabha was informed Tuesday.

Minister of State for Statistics and Programme Implementation Srikant Kumar Jena said as on June 1, 569 central sector projects were being monitored by his ministry.

"About 277 projects are running behind schedule," he said.

"Main reasons for delay in implementation are law and order problems, delay in land acquisition, rehabilitation and resettlement problems, fund constraints, delay in forest and environment clearances among other."

The key infrastructure projects are executed by the ministries of railways, road transport and highways, shipping, civil aviation and power.

He said these projects are monitored closely by the concerned ministry with respect to the target dates of completion.

"A standing committee has been set up in each ministry to fix responsibility for cost and time overruns," he added.
