How will India's 6-trillion-dollar asset monetization work?

Nirmala Sitharaman, the Union Finance Minister, unveiled on Monday a Rs. 6 lakh crore National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP) to unlock value in infrastructure assets ranging from power to roads and railroads.She also stated that asset monetisation does not entail the sale of land, but rather the monetisation of brownfield assets.Roads, trains, and power are among the major categories where projects have been identified.“NMP estimates aggregate monetisation potential of ₹6 lakh crores through core assets of the central government over the four-year period from FY 2022 to FY 2025,” she said. “Ownership of assets will remain with the government and there will be a mandatory hand-back.” Asset monetisation will unlock resources and lead to value unlocking, she stated.The Union Budget for the years 2021-22 identified the monetisation of running public infrastructure assets as a crucial source of long-term infrastructure funding.The Budget included funding for the development of a "National Monetization Pipeline" of prospective brownfield infrastructure assets.

The report on NMP was created by NITI Aayog in conjunction with infrastructural ministries.The asset pipeline under NMP is estimated to be worth Rs. 6 lakh crore over a four-year period. The anticipated amount is equal to 14% of the budgeted outlay for the National Infrastructure Pipeline (43 lakh crore) by the Centre.The ultimate goal of this initiative is to enable "infrastructure creation through monetisation," in which the public and private sectors work together, each excelling in their core areas of expertise, to provide socioeconomic growth and a better quality of life for the country's citizens, she added.
