Who sits in the driver's seat? Mass transit project in Delhi and the reshaping of urban institutions

Bérénice Bon, Post-doc at Darmstadt Technische Universität

The presentation will explore the interplay between a mass transit project and understandings of urban governance. The case of the parastatal agency in charge of the Delhi Metro Rail reveals new forms of interaction between technocratic action and state bureaucracy in urban development. It shows that both new and old public management shapes the agency's response to the injunction to unlock land value through public land leasing and the sale of development rights to private actors.



The State as the Firm? Untangling Public Private Partnerships for Large Scale Infrastructure Construction Projects in India

Champaka Rajagopal, PhD candidate, University of Amsterdam /Head of Urban Development, Egis India

The presentation will investigate the relationship between the State and the Firm as distinct governance structures in large scale infrastructure projects in corridor regions in India. The making of these regions hinges upon the establishment of road based expressways, freight corridors, airports and port projects, many of which are 'projectized' and structured as PPPs. Fully or partially government owned corporations, often acting with considerable autonomy, forge contracts with private firms, transferring in the process liabilities arising from uncertaint ies and risks onto the private sector party, however not without returning favours. Based on empirical research, the analysis explores the conditions under which the binary between the State and the Firm exists or ceases to exist for large scale regional infrastructure construction projects.
