The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved the recommendations made by the Inter-Ministerial Task Force under the chairmanship of Member (B.K. Chaturvedi), Planning Commission on budgetary ceilings for annuity commitments under Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects across sectors. The recommendation of the committee would ensure that future budgetary options do not get restricted due to annuity payments for PPP projects.
The guidelines would be communicated to Ministries for adoption within two weeks. These guidelines will streamline the process of structuring and sanction of projects under annuity mode of PPP.
