       The Union Finance Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee said that setting up
of Infrastructure Debt Fund through public private partnership would meet the
long term need of infrastructure sector funding. The Finance Minister Shri
Mukherjee said that he is confident that the establishment of Infrastructure
Debt Fund through PPP model would be a guiding principle for our future
activities. The Finance Minister said that funs to the tune of 1Trillion US$
would be required for Infrastructure Sector Funding in next five years, out of
which 50 percent would come from private sector through PPP model. The
Finance Minister was speaking after a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
was signed, here today in his presence for setting-up India's First
Infrastructure Debt Fund(IDF) structured as a Non-Banking Finance Company
(IDF-NBFC). The MoU was signed by Ms. Chanda Kochar, Managing Director,
ICICI Bank, Shri Pramit Jhaveri, CEO, CITI Bank, Shri M.D. Mallaya, CMD,
Bank of Baroda and Shri Sushobhan Sarkar, MD, LIC. Others present on the
occasion include Dr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Deputy Chairman, Planning
Commission, Shri Gajendra Haldia, Member, Planning Commission, Shri R.S.
Gujral, Finance Secretary, Shri R. Gopalan, Secretary, Economic Affairs, Shri
Sumit Bose, Secretary, Expenditure, Shri Haleem M. Khan, Secretary,
Disinvestment and Shri Bimal Julka, Addl. Secretary cum Director General,
(Currency),Ministry of Finance alongwith other senior officials of the Ministry of
Finance, representatives of Regulators and Financial Institutions among
others.

      The Union Finance Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee in his Budget
Speech for 2011-12 had announced setting-up of Infrastructure Debt Funds
(IDFs) in order to accelerate and enhance the flow of long term debt in
infrastructure projects for funding the government's ambitious programme of
infrastructure development. To attract off-shore funds into IDFs, the Finance
Minister had also announced that withholding tax on interest payments on the
borrowings by the IDFs would be reduced from 20% to 5%. Income of the IDFs
has also been exempt from income tax.
      The framework for establishment of IDFs was announced by the Ministry
of Finance in June, 2011 wherein IDFs were allowed to be set up either
structured as a non banking financial company (NBFC) or as a mutual fund.
Reserve Bank of India issued the regulations for IDFs to be set up as a NBFC in
November, 2011 and Securities Exchange Board of India issued the regulations
governing an IDF structured as a mutual fund in August, 2011.


       ICICI Bank (together with a wholly-owned subsidiary), Bank of Baroda,
Citi and LIC will hold 31%, 30%, 29% and 10% shareholding respectively in the
IDF-NBFC. The IDF would seek to raise debt capital from domestic as well as
foreign resources and would invest in infrastructure projects under the Public-
Private Partnership model that have completed one year of operations. The IDF
will expand and diversify the domestic and international sources of debt
funding to meet the large financing needs of the infrastructure sector, thereby
giving an impetus to the creation of the infrastructure necessary to drive
India's growth.
