Concept of the Project

  • Financing of the project is based on PPP/ BOOT Model where the Private Partners would bear 65% Project Cost and the revenues will be collected by them. Viability Gap Funding of 35% is being provided by Govt. of India through JNNURM. The cost of the UGR exclusive for Sector – V shall be borne by NDWML and Government of West Bengal on 50:50 basis.
