Project Finance

  • What Is Project Finance Rating
  • Process

While assigning PFR, CARE evaluates the project on many parameters. The risk analysis revolves around the financial strength of the sponsor, the size and the number of projects completed by the sponsor in the past, economic viability of the project, project implementation risk as well as post-commissioning risk and cash flow adequacy from the project. CARE’s PRF is an independent opinion on the risks associated with the project on a standalone basis and after considering the sponsor’s strength.

In India, municipal bodies are the main providers of key urban services like water supply and sewerage. According to the Thirteenth Finance Commission (TFC), there are 3,723 ULBs in India, of which 109 are Municipal Corporations, 1,432 are Municipalities and 2,182 are Nagar Panchayats, for a population of 1.15 billion, which is growing at a rate of 1.47% as on 2009.

PFR would help lenders/investors to evaluate credit quality of the issuer and would facilitate an informed lending/investment decision.

The rating process takes about two to three weeks, depending on the complexity of the assignment and the flow of information from the client. Ratings are assigned by the Rating Committee.
