The biggest constraint to growth in India and the developing world is infrastructure. Infrastructure, being a natural monopoly, has traditionally been the government’s responsibility for development.

However, the capacity (financial and human) deficit in government led to the involvement of private players with more significant risk sharing, moving from the traditional contract model to the PPP model.

The advent of PPPs brought substantial challenges, both for Government and the private players. Roles and mindset needed redefinition, especially on the Government side.

Appropriate regulation became more critical. There is a need to learn from both successes and failures of PPPs in the infrastructure sector to bring in greater maturity and professionalism in this eco-system by developing competencies and perspectives.

Relevant questions in this context would be:

  • How do you structure infrastructure projects?
  • How do you assess risks and manage them?
  • How do you share risks between the government and PPP players?
  • How do you do tendering and bidding?
  • How do you develop sustainable concession agreements?
  • How do you create an appropriate regulatory ecosystem?

While addressing the above questions, this course will provide a grounding in theory and further build on case studies from various infrastructure sectors, leveraging India’s rich experience in PPPs.There is much that a global audience can learn from this course as the implications of commercialization remain constant, irrespective of geography.


The present mood in the infrastructure sector is somber, with tremendous opportunities on the one hand and a great deal of skepticism on the other.

Several things are going right, and several things are going wrong! Non Performing Assets (NPAs) are piling up in Public Sector Banks, and infrastructure is a significant contributor. However, there are a plethora of opportunities in this ambiguous situation.
