Indian Finance ministry has started discussions with state governments to finalise the model for promoting public-private partnership (PPP) in education and health.
Previously, the PPP model was based on the UK's PPP model, but now PPP model has been changed. The government is partnering with private sector for the management of teaching staff and payment of salaries. Construction and maintenance of the premises would be in the Government's domain. While in the UK, PPP model for education entails private sector funding in the construction and maintenance of school premises. While the management of teaching staff and payment of salaries remains in the government domain. Along with innovative financing models for the infrastructure sector, the government is turning its attention to the area of infrastructure facilitation services.
