National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) projects constitute infrastructure sector projects greater than INR 100 crore. Classification of infra projects under NIP on IIG is primarily based on the sub sectors as per the Harmonized Master List of Infrastructure sub-sectors (August 2018). Non-NIP projects are non-infra projects plus projects which are less than INR 100 Crore, or which were originally not included in NIP listing.
Infrastructure Projects from private players can be classified under NIP projects after approval by respective state government or line ministry.
The projects under NIP are closely monitored by the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA), Ministry of Finance. The respective line ministries and implementation agencies are responsible for keeping the projects updated under the guidance of the DEA.
No, IIG is only a project discovery platform. All investment decisions are made outside this platform.
Anyone who fulfills the project requirements decided by the Line Ministries and the Department of Economic Affairs, (DEA) can invest in NIP projects. Each project will have a different process for investment and investors can connect with the IIG team or the promoter directly to find out more details.
