Celebrating 7 Incredibly Large-Scale Projects That Transformed India


Be it the Kerala Tourism project that transformed the state into a premium holiday destination, or the Bhakra Dam construction that gave India one of the highest gravity dams in the world – there are several large-scale projects in India that have transformed the country in some way or the other.

Here’s celebrating and honouring seven such brilliant projects that define either a particular state or the entire country. These are projects that are unique in terms of one or all of the following aspects – innovation, engineering, scale, and significant social impact.

1. Project Tiger:



2. Bhakra Nangal Dam:


3. Kerala Tourism:


4. The Akshay Patra Foundation:



5. Mars Orbiter Mission (MoM):


6. Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai


7. Konkan Railway:



Project Management Institute (PMI), a not-for-profit professional membership association for the project, program, and portfolio management profession, has compiled 12 such projects in the form of a calendar, which showcases projects that were executed successfully overcoming all constraints and had the desired outcome. Through this calendar they want to honour projects that brought recognition to India but did not receive as much credit as they deserve. Founded in 1969, PMI delivers value for more than 2.9 million professionals working in nearly every country in the world through global advocacy, collaboration, education and research.
