Infrastructure financing is regarded as the lifeline of a nation in view of its significance in economic growth and sophistication of a country. The lack of long-term debt has been the core issue faced by the infrastructure sector. With the upswing of economic reforms process and globalisation effects, umpteen avenues are there for infrastructure financing not only from sources within the country, but from outside too. During the last decade, infrastructure in India has seen several strides, with many projects having been undertaken with public private participation. It is, in this context essential that these huge projects need effective monitoring and control in terms of their performance. Such a measure, which is crucial for the financial structuring and inflow of funds, also boosts the confidence of investors. When investors acquire confidence about their investments, further flow of funds becomes easy. This book attempts to capture all the relevant aspects of infrastructure financing in India, citing examples of similar initiatives in other parts of the globe and to provide insights into the dynamics of infrastructure financing in the context of a globalised economy.
