During its development, the undertaking was damaged by configuration defects that expanded the complete cost, unending deferrals, defilement claims, and reports of inconsistencies in development prompting an FIA examination. However, the PTI-drove commonplace, and governments stayed inflexible and put it all on the line to finish the undertaking.
