This paper identifies stable exchange rate, mild inflation, clarity of taxation rules, fiscal discipline & sustainability of economic policy create investment climate in India. According to this paper, public private partnership model is the best model as infrastructure is concerned but effectiveness of this depends upon maturity of domestic bond market & infrastructure pricing policy. In addition, this paper discovers inadequate allocation of fuel to the power stations, delay in environment clearances, issues in the land acquisition, absence of credible dispute resolution mechanism are the technical barriers of investment in infrastructure.
