India has vast requirement of Infrastructure building and improvement. The PPP route was established in last decade also saw some lean time.

Mr. Arun Lakhani the Chairman & Managing Director of Vishvaraj Infrastructure Limited (VIL) says one of our biggest challenges of high – density urbanization is the generation of huge of waste water. According to the estimates of Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) about 80% of water supplied for domestic use is discharged as waste water which enters untreated into the downstream water bodies polluting them. A mammoth 38,000 MLD of wastewater is generated by Class I & Class II towns and this is expected to grow 3 – 5 times to 133,000 MLD by 2050.
Vishvaraj Infra has an amazing success story to showcase. The Orange City Water or the Nagpur 24×7 Water Supply Project. Nagpur the 3rd largest city & winter capital of Maharashtra state, Nagpur is India’s loath largest city with a population of over 2.5 million people. It became the first city of its size in the country to outsource its water supply to a private operator under the PPP model for 25 years. The Private entity to bring in 3o% of the investment of the estimated project cost, 70% to be the Public entity’s contribution under MN URM + l00% escalation. The project to be operative for 25 years of O&M inclusive of 5 years of capital rehabilitation.
