Though construction, and management contracts with a private sector firm. The project was an integral part of a 25-year strategic plan, which aimed to gradually extend, to the total population, a 24-hour water supply, and sewerage service. This groundbreaking partnership was also designed to ensure that Pune remained an attractive economic destination for investors. Had it succeeded, it would have provided a model for other cities in India seeking to improve services through private sector partnerships.
