Ramesh Singh Test: Industry & Infrastructure- 2 - Question 10

Consider the following statements.

1. In the hybrid annuity model, the private player is exposed only to the construction risk.

2. In EPC MODEL, the toll collection is the responsibility of the government

3. In, BOT ANNUITY, the party bidding for the maximum annuity used to get the project.

Which of these statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Ramesh Singh Test: Industry & Infrastructure- 2 - Question 10
  • BOT-ANNUITY: This was an improvement over the BOT-TOLL model aimed at reversing the declining interest of the private companies towards road projects by manly reducing the risk for the private players. Other than sharing the project cost the private player was to build, maintain and operate the road projects without any responsibility of collecting toll on the traffic.

  • EPC MODEL: The PPP model which seemed to be a better way out to promote the infra projects were visibly failing by the year 2010 and the Government was unable to attract the private players towards the road sector. It was in this backdrop that the Engineering-Procurement Construction (EPC) Model was announced. In this model, the project cost was fully covered by the Government (it means, it was not a PPP model and was like normal contracts given to the bidders) together with the majority of the risks— land acquisition, cost overruns due to delay, inflation and commercial. The private developers were supposed to design, construct and hand over the road projects to the government maintenance, operation and toll collection being the government's responsibilities.

HAM: Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM) is a mix of EPC and BOT-ANNUITY models. In this model, the project cost is shared by the government and the private player in the ratio of 40:60, respectively. The private player is responsible to construct and hand over the roads to the government which will collect toll (if wishes)—maintenance remaining the responsibility of the private player till the annuity period. The private player is paid a fixed sum of economic compensation (called 'annuity', similar to the BOT ANNUITY model of past) by the government for a fixed tenure (normally 15 years, though it is flexible). The private player which demands the lowest annuity (in bidding) gets the contract. In this model, most of the major risks are covered by the government—land acquisition, clearances, operation, toll collection and commercial while the risks related to inflation and cost overruns are shared in the ration of the project cost-sharing. But the private sector is still exposed to the construction and maintenance risks (delays from the government side in clearances and land acquisition have chances to enhance the degree of risks private players are exposed to). But overall, this is the best PPP model for the time devoid of most of the flaws of the past.
