Sub: – ORISSA PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP (PPP) POLICY- 2007.
The future development of the country hinges on the development of its infrastructure and efficient delivery of its services. The Planning Commission, Government of India estimates that around US$320 billion (14, 50,000 Cr. INR) is likely to be invested in the infrastructure sector over the 11th Plan. A large part of this investment is to come from the private sector with Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode as one of the preferred routes. The PPP approach is best suited for the infrastructure sector as it supplements scarce public resources, creates a more competitive environment and helps to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. To achieve this goal, Government of Orissa has come out with this Public Private Partnership Policy.
