  6. Critics, including several in the government, would be more than eager to tel you that infrastructure development through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) route has come at a huge cost. For instance, a study says that Mumbai's Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) has seen "excessive and unlawful gains" at the expense of port users, who paid 8Oolo more than what was due.


  7. "The 30 year concession period awarded to NSICT Ltd for a port terminal at JNPT (Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust) has affected-the public exchequer and user interest in several ways. The role played by TAMP (Tariff Authority for Major Ports), the independent regulator responsible for fixing tariff, led to NSICT extracting inadmissible returns of 524 crore during 2002-05, which translated into returns of over 100% of its equity as against the permissible 20% " the study said


  8. While a port may sound distant, projects like the Delhi-NOIDA toll bridge, which has seen traffic grow manifold since it was opened nearly a decade ago, would look more familiar. Another story details how the concessionaire got a deal where it was assured 20% return and any shortfall resulted in increased project cost. So, the initial cost of the DND Flyway, as it is more popularly known, has doubled to 953 crore and since the amount has to be recovered with returns the operator now gets to run the facility for 70 years, instead of the original 30 year period
