National Monetisation Pipeline
The National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP) was launched by the Central Government to monetize existing infrastructure assets by leasing them to private firms for a fixed tenure under a revenue sharing model. It will ease the governmentâ€™s fiscal constraints and free up balance sheets for more infrastructure development.
The NMP aims to create Rs.6 trillion over the next four years. Under this framework, the ownership of the leased assets will remain with the government. The private entities are required to return these assets after a fixed time period. The private participation would add value to these assets, creating a boost to the economic growth.
