  • Infrastructure projects are subject to various challenges such as regulatory issues, land acquisition issues, delays in environmental clearances, disputes and litigation. There are many reasons for these. Capital investments are high and gestation periods are long. Risk allocation in contracts is not balanced. Financial appraisals are not stringent. Contract enforcement is weak. There are multiple parties involved and contracts lack standardisation.
  • In the past couple of years, the government has taken some proactive steps to make the legal process more effective. A number of laws have been revisited and some of them redefined for faster execution of infrastructure projects. More recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has been recognised as a force majeure event in India, and an extension of three to six months has been granted to all EPC projects. Progress is being made in the area of mergers and acquisitions. There is also considerable focus on faster resolution of stressed assets.
    Other issues relating to land acquisition, environmental clearances and time extensions are also being addressed by the government.
  • The role of “independent” regulators has expanded, which has made the system fairer and more transparent. Meanwhile, the role of arbitrators has also increased, which has ensured efficient resolution of various legal disputes. However, infrastructure project disputes are still largely resolved through litigation, which is quite time consuming and costly.
  • Despite the introduction of a number of initiatives and measures to simplify the legal process, infrastructure projects continue to face unprecedented delays and disruptions. Going forward, judicial and institutional capabilities must be enhanced to support the infrastructure sector. India should work on the development of a construction law or act, and follow a standardised contract format. Besides, a fair and balanced allocation of risk, reliable and quick dispute settlement mechanisms, and key clearances and approvals need to be in place before projects are awarded for the sanctity of infrastructure projects.
  • The mission of this virtual conference is to highlight and understand the unresolved legal issues in the infrastructure sectors, identify the regulatory challenges that have come to the forefront since the Covid-19 outbreak, highlight the recent initiatives, and discuss the way forward. The conference will also offer a platform to different stakeholders to share their experience and exchange views and opinions. Previous
