Brief Summary

India has the second largest urban population in the world with more than 300 million people living in urban India. By 2021, the figure is expected to cross 40% with 74 million plus urban agglomerations. To meet the challenges of rapid urbanization, the Government of India has launched the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in 2005 with an overarching objective to strengthen and empower urban local bodies / municipalities and to catalyze investment, both public and private, for urban infrastructure and amenities. This has opened the doors of partnerships between the public and private players in developing the Indian urban infrastructure.

One of the early adoptions of such PPP models in urban water distribution has been the case of Tirupur Industrial Water Supply Project. Urban Water Distribution PPPs has picked up the momentum since 2005 after the successful implementation of JNNURM sanctioned water PPP project at Chandrapur, Maharashtra, which got operational in 2007.

PPP projects today have a total reach of approximately more than five million urban populations.
