public private partnership in india

Partner in Progress

Private players of our country have done a very good job. But behind them stood the full force of the government in the form of a partner in progress. Today, India is one of the most reliable and state-of-the-art Space Service Providers in the whole world. Our Private Sector Ecosystem is doing a great job in this area too. But behind them also, as a ‘Partner in Progress’, the government is standing with full power. Now is the time that the government should encourage the private sector as a partner in progress and we are moving forward in this direction.

About Us

The Infrastructure Finance Secretariat (IFS) has been established under the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA), Ministry of Finance with the idea of harmonizing policies and initiatives related to infrastructure financing and development. IFS has been set up to boost infrastructure development through a multitude of initiatives. These initiatives are directed towards promoting private investment in Infrastructure.

The Private Investment Unit (Erstwhile PPP Cell), now a part of the IFS was set up in 2006 in the Department of Economic Affairs. The Private Investment Unit is responsible for policy-level matters concerning PPPs, including Policies, Schemes, programs, Model Concession Agreements, and Capacity Building. The Private Investment Unit also acts as the Secretariat for Public Private Partnership Appraisal Committee (PPPAC), and Empowered Committee (EC), and is also responsible for matters and proposals relating to clearance by PPPAC, Scheme for Financial Support to PPPs in Infrastructure (VGF Scheme) and India Infrastructure Project Development Funding (IIPDF) Scheme.

The Private Investment unit has developed this website to provide key information related to PPP initiatives in India and to share PPP best practices for PPP practitioners whether in the Government or the Private Sector. This website provides information on Institutional Mechanisms for the Appraisal of PPP projects and Schemes for financial support to PPP projects, the latest initiatives of PIU for promoting PPPs in India, and also acts as a readily accessible repository of policies, guidelines, model documents, guidance materials, reference documents and includes a database of key PPP projects.
