Abstract: Policy makers worldwide have been advocating the public private partnership (PPP) model for improving delivery of urban services. In India, public private partnership (PPP) model has been receiving growing attention to address urban infrastructure bottlenecks faced by the country. Urban local bodies (ULBs) are constitutionally responsible for provision of urban services. The Union and state governments have introduced many initiatives to encourage PPP for efficient delivery of urban services (Urban PPP). However, the full potential of the PPP model remains untapped. Compared to other sectors such as roads, ports and airports, urban PPP projects have been relatively few in India. The adoption of PPP model for urban infrastructure has varied considerably between various states and ULBs in India. In this context, a questionnaire survey was carried out to evaluate the perception of ULB representatives and urban PPP experts, which represents demand and supply side of competency development system respectively, on the aspect of important factors influencing ability of ULBs to adopt PPPs. Based on the analysis of the questionnaire, the five most significant factors identified include administrative commitment at the state and municipal level to urban PPP projects, political commitment at municipal level to urban PPP projects, economic environment prevailing in the city, and competencies in private sector to implement PPP projects.
