the urbanising world
The Urbanising World
  • The 20th Century began with a population of 2 billion which increased to 6 billion population by the end of the century.
  • The Century also witnessed the biggest exodus of human population from Rural to Urban areas
  • The global urbanisation level increased from 10% to 50% during the century; The world has turned urban with more than half the population living in urban areas
extra ordinary urban growth in less developed countries
Extra-ordinary Urban Growth in Less Developed Countries
  • 600 Million people added to the world’s urban population between 1990-2000
  • Close to 3 million people are added in Asia alone every month, i.e. equivalent to one new City a month
  • Of the 21 mega cities (popln. 10 million+) in the world today, 17 are estimated to be in developing countries

Urban Infrastructure Scenario in India
  • According to estimates of the Rakesh Mohan Committee total requirement for urban infrastructure development covering backlog, new investments and O&M costs for the next ten years isRs. 2,50,000 Crores (US$ 57 Billion)
  • The ninth Plan proposal identifies only around Rs. 12000 Crores. With anticipated growth in Tenth plan providing additional funds of Rs.13,000 Crores, the total expected plan outlay comes to Rs. 25,000 Crores (US$ 5.7 Billion).
  • Funds for UI development fall short by more than 10 times the requirement

challenges facing infrastructure
Challenges facing Infrastructure
  • Characteristics of infrastructure projects:
    • natural monopolies - non-exclusive nature
    • in-elastic demand - huge investment required for capital & maintenance
  • Traditionally Infrastructure provision seen as role of government
  • Schemes conceived as unitary service - no experience in unbundling
  • Although Financing options are rapidly changing due to financial, technological and organisational innovations at project and policy levels- no clear guidelines for Private sector Participation

Cities and Citizens get the infrastructure they

desire and deserve.

major concerns in urban infrastructure sector
Major Concerns in Urban Infrastructure Sector
  • Inadequate coverage and service level
  • Poor quality of service to consumers
  • Institutional deliquencies and high administrative overheads
  • Insufficient financial and managerial resources with Urban Local Bodies / parastatals
  • High non-revenue component due to wastage, pilferage, unaccounted-for losses and free riders
  • Inefficient operation and maintenance
  • Poor monitoring and cost recovery
  • Unsustainable resource management practices
  • High investment needs and project costs
  • Lower priority accorded to certain urban services
financing of infrastructure schemes
Financing of Infrastructure Schemes
  • Budgets of
    • Central Government
    • State Governments
    • Local Governments
  • Raising loans from LIC/HUDCO

and other Financial Institutions

  • Loans from International Funding Agencies like OECF(JBIC), World Bank, ADB, KfW, USAID, etc.
  • Grant funds from Donor Agencies like DANIDA, DFID, CIDA, National Trust/ Missions

“Every One Crore rupees spent in infrastructural provision now, saves Ten Crore on cost escalation and

public health care due to deficient services later!”

role of financing agencies as facilitators of change
Role of Financing Agencies as Facilitators of Change
  • Principles of“user-pay”, “abuser pay” or “polluter pay”to be used while determining the service charges to assess the practical aspect of pricing.
  • Willingness to PayOR Willingness to Charge
  • For improving the sustainability of UI projects HUDCO emphasises
    • Principle of full cost recovery
    • Transparent, Targeted and Measurable subsidy, if needed
    • Cost savings through energy efficiency, reduction of leakages, manpower rationalisation etc.
    • Full autonomy to local bodies to determine tariffs
    • Tariff fixation taking care of annual incremental cost, O&M cost, debt dues, depreciation charges etc.
    • Compulsory 100% metering
    • Operation of escrow account
issues involved in infrastructure financing financial institution s perspective
Issues Involved in Infrastructure Financing: Financial Institution’s Perspective


  • Asset liability mismatch due to short term borrowing vs. longterm funding.
  • Large volume of resources for capital intensive projects
  • Locking up of funds in specific large projects.
  • High risk involved in greenfield ventures
  • Non-uniformity in appraisal, guidelines and documentation requirements
  • Lack of tangible security and partial or nil recourse basis of funding projects.
  • Norms restricting exposure to individual agencies.


  • Political risks & Implementation risks.
  • Risks of default by borrowing agency
  • Risks of prepayment in falling interest rate scenario
  • Foreign Exchange Risks and currency fluctuations

In this context, alternatives in service delivery and innovations in resource mobilisation being explored by Financial Institutions HUDCO, IDFC, ICICI, IL&FS and LIC

some innovative user pay instruments
Some Innovative ‘User pay’ Instruments

route to private sector participation
Route to Private Sector Participation
  • The concept of Public-Private -Partnership is generally seen as one of these models:
    • Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT)
    • Build-Operate-Own-Transfer (BOOT)
    • Build-Operate-Lease-Transfer (BOLT)
    • Rehabilitate-Operate-Transfer (ROT)
    • Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Transfer (DBFOT)
  • In INDIA full blown Private Sector Participation models have not been put into place, so far
options for private sector participation psp
Options for Private Sector Participation (PSP)
  • However, the various options available, in order of increasing Private Participation in Water Supply & Sanitation Projects being taken up are:
    • Service Contracts
    • Management Contracts
    • Lease
    • Concession

With experience and later on, through

    • BOT/BOOT etc.
    • Divestiture
private sector participation in water utilities manila experience
Private Sector Participation in Water Utilities - Manila Experience
  • Successful involvement of Private Sector in Power Generation and Distribution; Largest effort in privatisation of Water utilities.
  • Metropolitan Water Works and Sewerage System (MWSS) had covered only 67% population with intermittent water supply and 8 % with sewerage system in 1994.
  • 56 per cent of 3000 mld supply was non-revenue water
  • MWSS privatised in 1997 and split into two.
  • Manila divided into two Zones - East and West.
  • Two Consortia led by - BENPRES for West and AYALA for east -selected to run water works on 25 year franchise; Both Groups offered rates lower than the prevalent rate (8.78 pesos)
private sector participation in water utilities buenos aires experience
Private Sector Participation in Water Utilities - Buenos Aires Experience
  • National Public Company OSN was in charge of water & sewerage.
  • Unaccounted-for water was about 45% of production
  • Objective of PSP: To reduce Government burden and minimise the price for service delivery
  • Privatised in 1993 - Through Concession, thus effectively keeping the fixed assets under Public Ownership
  • Single private firm to operate on 30 years concession period to be revived by re-bidding later
  • Responsible to operate and maintain fixed assets and expand coverage and guarantee water quality
  • Pricing to incorporate subsidy already existing, first price review after 5 years
private sector participation in water utilities buenos aires experience25
Private Sector Participation in Water Utilities - Buenos Aires Experience

Reasons for success :

  • Comprehensive and transparent bidding process - Two Envelope System
  • Independent Regulatory Agency established by Government to monitor concessionaire, enforce the terms of contracts and regulatory specifications and levy fines where necessary
  • Contract had provision for adjustment and re-negotiation during enforcement of concessional period (after 2 years the initial reduction of tariff partly withdrawn in view of more capital investment on system improvement, than originally estimated)
  • Re-negotiation : transparent and stakeholders involved
  • Tariff policy had a fixed portion to cover cost of infrastructure and a variable part proportional to consumption

innovative financing mechanisms
Innovative Financing Mechanisms

Sub-ordinate (Mezzanine) Debt Financing:

  • Internal restrictions on equity participation by financial institutions,
  • Lower equity and hence limited debt-equity ratio of new State level bodies for infrastructure projects restrict them from market borrowing on a large scale.
  • Funding could be considered as deemed equity for a specific period granting the bodies better financial leverage

Cashflow financing:

  • institutional funding to be tailor-made to suit the financial requirements at various stages of the project calling for cash-flow financing.

Periodic Cash Flows

Securitisation of Receivables



securitisation of receivables49
Securitisation of receivables
  • Conversion of future cash receivables into financial or debt instruments tradable in capital market
  • Role of SPV as intermediary:
    • assumes the entire credit risk on the securitised receivables of selected outstanding loan portfolio
    • Insulates the lender from bankruptcy & insolvency risks
    • repackages the receivables into pass-through certificates of manageable lots for onward trading in the secondary market.
    • Principal and interest components of the repayments are passed on to the security owner.
  • Merits to Investor:
    • Continuous cash flow on Securitised instruments over the life of the loan and principal “depletes” over time.
  • Advantages to Lending Institution:
    • reduces the locking up of funds in a few projects.
    • facilitates reduction in borrowings
    • ensures better asset-liability management.
    • provides efficient exit option for the financial institutions to transfer the risks of default and prepayment
municipal bonds
Municipal Bonds
  • In United States, account for nearly 70% of the capital financing for infrastructure.
    • General Obligation Bonds (GO)
    • Revenue Bonds
  • Ahmedabad Municipal CorporationGO bond issue of Rs. 100 Crores
  • Bangalore, Vijayawada and Ludhiana have already raised money through municipal bonds; Mumbai & Pune have obtained credit ratings; Kanpur Development Authority latest entrant

Problems faced:

  • Since bonds can be raised over night within a short period and their utilisation may require 2-3 years, quite often, States/agencies tend to fall into the debt trap
  • On account of the dire financial position, Credit Rating of agencies need to be enhanced to enable raising funds at lower costs.
facilitating urban local bodies in resource mobilisation
Facilitating Urban Local Bodies in Resource Mobilisation

Government’s new strategy on the anvil for ULBs :

  • Credit Line
    • Making available requisite loan facilities for Urban Local Bodies and other agencies
  • Bond Bank
    • Varying capacity levels of ULBs in obtaining high credit rating, lower borrowing costs, optimal resource utilisation & asset management
    • Need for financial intermediary to pool the projects of the various agencies and float a common bond on the merit of the projects setting apart a reserve fund.
    • Bond bank could be at the national level as a special purpose vehicle or as a subsidiary of the financial institutions.
  • Challenge Fund
    • For facilitating the States and Urban local bodies implementing the reform agenda

Special Economic Zones
  • Proposal to set up Special Economic Zones (SEZ) in various parts of country as duty-free zones for industrial, service and trade operations to attract foreign investment and facilitate expeditious development.
  • Proposal for a new SEZ at major Ports
  • The policy envisages the treatment of SEZs as priority areas in provision of infrastructure, convergence in statutory clearances, exemption from duties and levies as well as liberal regulations.
  • SEZs as industrial townships would need priority for integrated provision of infrastructure facilities.
