But with so many PPPs in legal dispute, there is a larger issue of how PPPs are structured. If the traffic was much lower than projected in the case of the airport express, it was dramatically higher in the case of the Delhi Gurgaon expressway where, as a result, the expressway is woefully under-designed; in the case of UMPPs, the government asked companies who have difficulty giving 3-month guidance to take a 20-year call on what fuel prices and exchange rates would be. While it is easy to argue the private players are out to make an easy buck, the fact is that PPPs get restructured the world over, banks restructure loans all the time in even India, and the government bails out PSUs like Air India and BSNL without batting an eyelidso why should resetting PPPs be taboo Obviously, there has to be a method to ensure the restructuring is bona fide, but given how many PPPs are certain to land in a soup, its a good idea to look at a permanent committee whose job is doing this. Perhaps PPPs need to do some scenario-building into the contracts themselvesin case traffic flows are 20% lower than projected, for instance, the concession period will be extended by 35%, say. Without planning for some PPPs failing, were condemning the entire process to failure.
