The urban population of India comprises about 30% of the total population. This percentage is expected to grow to 40% by 2021. However, water transmission and distribution systems have failed to keep up with this growth, leading to significant problems in availability and quality. A benchmarking exercise conducted by the Ministry of Urban Development surveyed 28 pilot cities. This exercise suggests average water supply coverage of 63.5% and the sewerage coverage of around 50%. The total demand for water in cities has grown from 65 billion cubic meters (bcm) per day in 2005 to 70 bcm per day in 2009. It is expected to grow to 79 bcm per day by 2015.

In view of this burgeoning demand, the Government of India launched the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in December 2005 as well as the Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns (UIDSSMT) with the aim of accelerating planned development of cities and towns.

Historically, the involvement of private sector participation (PSP) in augmenting water infrastructure has been cautious. It is only in recent years that PSP is beginning to make some headway. The past decade has seen encouraging instances of PPP concessions. According to industry estimates, around 11 PSP projects have been completed in the water and sewerage sector, 18 are under implementation, 4 are in the bidding stage, and 21 in the pipeline. This suggests a recent spurt in the conception and award of PSP projects.
