2). Project Finance Fund (PFF) Scheme

  • This fund aims at providing loan assistance for execution of PPP and Non-PPP projects

Under the PFF Scheme, the MUIDCL would borrow and lend funds for priority urban infrastructure projects to the agencies, which find it difficult to directly raise funds from the financial institutions or capital market. The MUIDCL would assist the Agencies under this Scheme as follows :

  2. Providing loan assistance in the form of Viability Gap Funding (VGF) for PPP projects
  3. Providing loan assistance towards substantial cost funding of Non-PPP projects

The amount of loan assistance will depend on the extent of funding admissible to the project from other sources, including grant from the Government under any Scheme or Programme, and would be subject to the funding pattern of the Scheme or Programme. The interest rates on the loans offered would vary depending on the Class of the Municipal Councils and the Municipal Corporations, the nature and priority of the projects and also on the cost and tenure of borrowing by the MUIDCL.

A tripartite loan agreement between the MUIDCL, the Borrowing Agency and the State Government will be executed. The loan, along with interest, processing fee, commitment charges and delayed payment charges, if any, would be recovered as per the terms of the Tripartite Agreement. In case of default in the repayment of loan, interest or any other dues, the MUIDCL would request the State Govt. to intercept the grants payable by the Govt. to the concerned Agency.

  • Treasury management and appraisal of debt guarantee proposals with the help of a panel of technical experts / consultants / transaction advisors etc.
  • Reducing the cost of capital by providing financial guarantee for debt raised or providing any other form of guarantee
  • Organizing credit enhancement mechanisms and formalising and monitoring the Borrowing Agency level mechanisms such as escrow, loan repayment fund etc.
  • Exploring and using other mechanisms to substitute or supplement direct guarantees provided under the DSRF Scheme

In cases, where the MUIDCL provides guarantees, a fixed fee in proportion to the debt guaranteed will be charged. In case of invoking of guarantee and related payment, such amount paid will be recovered along with interest. In case of default in the payment towards such guarantee payments made by the MUIDCL and the guarantee fee, the MUIDCL would request the State Govt. to intercept the grants payable by the Govt. to the concerned Agency.
