An independent body that provides a neutral platform for the discussion and examination of issues critical to the development of the private power sector in India. The Independent Power Producers Association of India (IPPAI) was set up after the Government of India opened power generation to private players and invited developers to set up power projects in India. IPPAI was set up with the idea to provide a neutral forum to IPPs to discuss various issues and bottlenecks that the nascent industry faced. IPPAI provides a cerebral platform as also an engaging interface between players in the energy sector, policy makers (central and state level), electricity boards, financial institutions, ministries, power developers, Indian and multinational companies, equipment suppliers, EPC contractors and consultants.
The company was established in the year 2001. The forum is perhaps the only indian organisation which represents energy sector as a whole. Most major public and private sector organizations in power, oil and gas, coal and renewable energy have become its members.

The broad operational environment that affects the construction sector has several unique features not shared by other industries. This is true not only with respect to the dominance of contract based works giving rise to a distinct culture and problems of a different nature but also with respect to issues like finance, taxation and man-power related policies. Construction Federation of India (CFI) was therefore set up by the leading heavy civil engineering construction firms of India as a forum that would strive for bringing about all round improvements in the construction sector apart from aiming at long standing problems while striving towards resolution of operational as well as policy level problems faced by the industry. The Federation is a representative body of the leading engineering construction firms of the country engaged in the construction of critically important infrastructure projects such as dams, power stations, roads and highways, bridges, tunnels, seaports, airports, metros, housing and urban development and such other basic amenities.
The Planning Commission, Government of India, jointly with the Indian construction industry has set up Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC) to take up activities for the development of the Indian construction industry. The Council, for the first time in the country, provides the impetus and the organisational infrastructure to raise quality levels across the industry. This helps to secure wider appreciation of the interests of construction business by the government, industry and peer groups in society.
