From a purely governance angle I would say that it is a positive step and with the finance minister making a commitment about monitoring this entire initiative and about it being a policy guideline spelt out by the finance ministry supported by the NITI Aayog actually implemented by aligned ministry that is a very positive step because most of the time what happens with any kind of asset monetisation or public-private partnerships initiative is the kind of sort of accusation or allegation that it is not being done in a fair and transparent manner. Hopefully, now it will all be supported by the larger mandate of the union cabinet and that is very necessary and important way to assure that people are able to undertake this entire initiative in a positive, transparent and fair manner and by the by the manner in which it is being orchestrated, it looks like a very positive step.”
