We are demonstrating the potential of the private sector in achieving national goals

An Instrument of State

Widely acknowledged as the pioneer of Public Private Partnership in India, IL&FS has turned infrastructure building into a sustainable and commercially viable proposition.

We have consistently demonstrated the potential of the private sector as an instrument of State for the development, implementation, and management of large-scale infrastructure projects.

Since its inception, IL&FS has been aligned with India’s National Missions — from skilling for employment, to clean energy and waste management. Through strategic partnerships in 22 states, IL&FS has worked with the government not just on projects but at the policy level.

An Array of Stakeholders

Successful infrastructure projects require the close involvement of an array of stakeholders. Our infrastructure projects are developed in conjunction with a range of partners — governments, financing agencies, private sector partners and communities.

This unique Public Private Partnership helps to leverage limited public funds, reduce life cycle cost, develop and execute more projects on a sustainable basis.

We have harnessed the power of such partnerships to foster local, community-level solutions while integrating technical and financial expertise from professionals.

How We Work

In collaboration with the government, we identify need-driven projects that can be commercially viable, such as roads, bridges, power, ports, water supply and area development. We then use innovative structural and financial techniques to enhance project viability and impact. Numerous IL&FS projects which have been pioneering in their sectors are testament to the success of this approach.

With a rigorous project development process that raises non-budgetary resources to make projects viable, IL&FS has broken traditional moulds in the infrastructure sector. We are also able to leverage a wide variety of in-house skills and experience through our subsidiary companies, to deliver cross-sectoral mandates.
