Deepak Parekh Report on Infrastructure Financing

I have mentioned about this report many times in my blog. The newspapers continue to make a mention of the aspects of the report. Despite so many discussions in public domain, the report could not be found anywhere ( I make a note of the same here and here. I tried various govt. websites but could not locate the report. This was quite irritating. I could see in my Blog Stats, many people had come to the blog hoping to get a link to the report.  

Finally, I found the report. The report is put on a website (PPPIndia) floated by Infrastructure Division, Dept. of Eco Affairs, under Ministry of Finance (FinMin), India. On FinMin website, there is a seperate link for the Infra division but there is no mention of the PPPIndia website.

I had visited the PPPIndia website earlier and found the committee was formed by the above division. After visiting the website after a longtime I found the report.

I think Finance Ministry’s website should have atleast provided a link to the report. The report is pretty important and Finance Minister P.Chidambaram has mentioned of it in his Budget Speech this year.  

It would have been much easier to locate the report. I am not sure, how many knew the report is out in public domain. Even on the PPPIndia website it is not mentioned anywhere on the homepage and once has to go to a link named Policy & Procedures to find the report. When there is link called financing shouldn’t it have been there as well?

Anyways, go through the report now, as it should have some new ideas on financing the huge infrastructure deficit. Let me go through it and see if I can comment on the same.
