Webinar on
Challenges and Opportunities in HAM & BOT Projects

23 April, 2021

About Event

The industry is glad that the Government has given a massive push to economy by allocating about $1.4 Trillion for infrastructure to be invested until 2025.The highways sector in India has been at the forefront of performance and innovation and the government has successfully rolled out several projects on the Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM) for building National Highways to speed up the construction of roads in the country by renewing interest of private developers. 
This is an interesting model, since it can be widely applied to many diverse sectors and blends some financing with performance risk transfer. Initially, HAM appeared to be a lucrative option for private investors seeking to share financial risk with the government. However, the interest in HAM seems to have moderated now. Delays in land acquisition combined with funding constraints faced by private developers have been among the prime reasons for the slow pace of project award and increasing project terminations. HAM project by its very nature requires long term funding i.e. more than 15 years and hence linking the short term interest rates for a long term tenure project is a structural issue which need a relook as the Concessionaires also suffered losses on account of lockdown. We are of firm belief that there is need to revive the business confidence for attracting more and more Investors with patient capital from all over the world. In this context, ASSOCHAM is organising a Webinar on ‘Challenges and Opportunities in HAM & BOT Projects’ at 5:15 P.M. on April 23, 2021. The discussions at the Webinar will help provide further suggestions on the subject.
