Market-Based Financing of Urban Infrastructure

RAPID URBANIZATION has increased the demand for urban infrastructure in India. Since public funds for these services are inadequate, Urban Local Bodies have to look for alternative sources for financing their infrastructure needs. Accessing capital markets has emerged as viable options for ULBs to finance urban infrastructure. Several urban local bodies and utility organizations have issued bonds and have so far mobilized over Rs. 12,000 million through taxable bonds, tax-free bonds and pooled financing. The JNNURM, a flagship urban investment program of Government of India encourages ULBs to link the projects with market-based financing. The market access is important innovation in the financing of urban infrastructure in the country.

In 2001, about 286 million persons were living in urban areas of India and it was the second largest urban population in the world. The proportion of urban population was 27.8% in the year 2001 and the decadal growth of urban population was 31.2% in 1991-2001.
