  Private Participation

Recognizing the need to attract more investment in infrastructure, India opened itself to private investment as a part of country's 1991 reform program. There have since been some advances. Private sector participation in infrastructure is an important focus of India's Five-Year Plan for 1997-2001.The government also has established a high level task force to attract investment, including private funds, to project of national and regional importance. 

India still receive infrastructure services largely through public entities, usually part of a government department. The full potential of the private participation to meet India's infrastructure needs is largely untapped. The expected increase in demand for infrastructure services points to the need for augmenting capacities and improving efficiency in all areas.
