The central government funds the project using the Hybrid annuity model.


The hybrid annuity model works like this 

  • Land acquisition cost by the central government 
  • 40 percent of the construction cost will be bared by the central government
  • 60 percent construction cost bared by the construction company
  • The central government will fix the toll fee for the next 17.5 years.


Thus protecting the interest and win-win situations for both the construction company and the Government.

This model has avoided delays in projects, delays in compensating, totally going with the smooth flow.

  1. Bidadi 
  2. Mandya
