Traditionally, most of the Airports in India were under ownership and control of the Government of India. In 1997, the Government of India formulated Airport Infrastructure Policy, which provided for private sector’s participation for improving quality, efficiency and increasing competition. As a result of this initiative, Greenfield airports in Public-Private Partnership came up in Bangalore and Hyderabad. This trend indicated growing competition and a requirement of level playing field amongst different categories of airports in future. The Airports Authority of India then performed the role of airports operator as well as the regulator, which resulted in conflict of interest.
