Planners & Governments since 1995 have emphasized on the need for substantial spending in
infrastructure sector to sustain the GDP and economic growth. For achieving the projected GDP
growth exceeding 8% plus from the year 2007 onwards, the Government has accepted the need
to expand infrastructure sector. Infrastructure sector affords substantial growth prospects &
demand for companies engaged in construction, services and supply to this vital sector of
economy. Artefact plays a pivotal role as an Infrastructure Derivative software Company
providing a vital link between plans, policies and its implementation.

The total infrastructure sector spending in next 5 years is estimated to be USD$ 374 Bns.

completed projects, which makes it very difficult for any new entrants to bid and compete in
near future. It creates a niche market for few established service providers being early Cucles in
