Infrastructure Development Board

About Punjab Infrastructure Development Board

Punjab has envisioned overall industrial and economic growth through development of world-class infrastructure in the State. To achieve this objective a strong legal and institutional framework has been put in place through creation of Punjab Infrastructure Development Board (PIDB).

The Chief Minister, Punjab is the Chairman of the Board and the Deputy Chief Minister is the Co-Chairman, besides other senior Ministers and Secretaries as members of the Board. The statutory status of the PIDB amplifies the significance provided to the development of infrastructure and private sector participation therein. PIDB has been created under the Punjab Infrastructure (Development & Regulation) Act, 2002 (PIDRA). The PIDRA not only provides broad based overarching regulatory frame work but also consolidates the best practices in infrastructure development. PIDB is a nodal agency for implementation of Public Private Partnership (PPP) Projects in the State and acts as an enabler and a facilitator for providing level playing field for participation of National and International investors in creation of infrastructure in the State.
