IPF is part of a wider UK-India partnership on infrastructure, to enable access by India to leading, global expertise in private sector approaches to infrastructure delivery and financing.

The IPF primarily provides support to the infrastructure policy making unit in the DEA, Ministry of Finance (MoF) which is also extended to central line ministries and state governments. This technical assistance is to improve the business environment for investors and developers in delivering infrastructure, especially high poverty impact infrastructure services. The expected focus is on improving the business environment, capability, and knowledge within the infrastructure sector.

The programme focuses on both:

  • on sectors and states that have the greatest impact on poverty reduction or interventions that are considered innovative and offer wider lessons


  • Business Environment – Improved business environment for private sector participation in infrastructure, including a focus on providing international experience and perspectives on regulations and policies, particularly in sectors with limited PPP experience.
  • Capacities– Increased capability to formulate development-oriented infrastructure projects and to address implementation barriers
  • Knowledge Generation – Policy-relevant knowledge (including robust evidence of what works in private sector-supported programmes and approaches in India) generated and disseminated (including in newly established dialogue mechanisms between key public and private sector stakeholders).
