* It is important that India recognises that the time has come for making the most out of our assets: Finance minister 

* By bringing in private participation, we are going to monetise the assets better and with whatever resource that you obtained by monetisation, you are able to put in for further investment into infrastructure building: Sitharaman 

* Govt plans to correlate it with the National Infrastructure Project announced earlier: Kant 

* The road sector covers about 26,700 km assets which will be considered for monetisation. It will be worth Rs 1.60 lakh crore: Kant
