Raising debt funding for Greenfield & Brownfield Infra projects

India needs large investments in infrastructure for accelerating inclusive growth aimed at poverty alleviation and improvement in quality of life. The domestic Infrastructure funding and finance is in a state of flux since sometime. On both sides of the equation — supply and demand — there are positive and negative influences resulting from the economic slowdown as well as credit scarcity. While demand remains strong from the users of finance, the sources of supply have reduced due to multiple reasons. 

Lack of depth in the financing market, current stress level in the banking sector, lack of innovation in financial instruments, slow development of alternate sources of finance as well as project quality have continued to remain the top Industry challenges over the last decade. Uncertainty in the credit markets is impacting the ability of infrastructure developers to raise finance for infrastructure projects and undermining confidence in private finance models. 

Can creating more IDFs be the solution? Or can we expect some more innovative ideas?

“GRI Club, after establishing a very successful industry networking forum for Indian real estate over the past couple of years, is replicating the same for Indian Infrastructure industry. I have particularly liked the approach of GRI events so far of bringing together a select set of few participants spanning investors - both domestic and international, lenders and developers on a frequent basis to network and talk through their recent high level experiences / industry updates.”
