Table of Contents

Public private partnership (PPP) is an effective and sustainable strategy for the development of public infrastructure. Though its acronym PPP has become a buzzword, the complexity of the concept itself is not fully understood. Written in lucid manner and with a practical slant, this book offers both accessible information to newcomers as well as valuable reference to the experienced in the field.

The book is divided into two thematic parts. Part-I begins with a thorough and comprehensive introduction of PPP, followed by an elaborate description of its component topics, including equitable risk allocation, deterministic financial approach, contractual relationship between inherently opposed entities, and the supportive legal and regulatory framework.

Part-II presents an incisive and in-depth analysis of the past experience of PPP and future prognosis of the various key infrastructure sectors, comprising roads, water and sanitation, urban rail transit, airports, ports, and power and telecommunication. A separate section is specifically devoted in each chapter to the Indian scenario and includes extensive coverage of the present conditions in the sector, PPP progress in the respective field, and steps initiated by the authorities for its accelerated propagation. All chapters are supplemented with real world examples of successful PPP. In addition to sixteen such project briefs, there are four case studies, including one on Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, which offer rich reference insights into live PPP infrastructure development.

The book will be useful to students and academic fraternity in the areas of business management and development economics, to economic planners, infrastructure professionals, investment managers, senior executives of public and private sectors, and policy makers in the central and state governments and the bureaucracy.


"It is an excellent work with a perfect mix of theory and practice. The case studies are extremely well selected and essential to understand the various aspects of PPP. Congratulations, superb achievement."  — Marc Bertoneche, Visiting Professor of Finance, Harvard Business School

"By writing this a comprehensive book, the author has given shape to the ever increasing domain of PPP, which will be handy not only for the students of public policy and systems, but also for government administrator, private players, and legal professionals, who work day in and day out on various issues involved in the development of infrastructure."  Vikalpa, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad

"I find the book comprehensive and detailed. Its contents are much more than what an infrastructure economist can put together, meaning it is particularly useful for those involved in actual business of developing PPP projects".   Hun Kim, Country Director for India, Asian Development Bank
