Indicus has deep expertise and research capabilities for the analysis of network industries such as electricity, roads and water and sanitation, which constitute the infrastructure sector. Indicus aims at deepening the debate on infrastructure reform and regulation in India based on sound research. The focus of research will be on reconciling private participation, increased competition and widened access.
The implementation of pro-competitive rules through regulatory processes requires an understanding the nuances of the economic problems of network industries generally characterised by oligopolistic industry structures. Indicus infrastructure research seeks to understand these nuances for policy prescriptions.
