The report intends to evaluate the underlying rationale of the initiatives; the preparatory and bid process; key contract provisions; risk allocation and related issues that may have a bearing on the operational trajectory; and impact the achievement of objectives. The five projects, in Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh, provide a detailed analysis of the process, politics, and preparation of PPP projects in India.
