Generating sufficient public infrastructure funds remains an issue for Kerala, and academic inquiry is necessary to give some direction to the policymakers. This research identifies the key financing mechanism with its characteristics and subsequently proposes a consistent and efficient framework for selecting appropriate financing mechanism. A sample of 10 major infrastructure projects that were financed through various mechanisms in the state was subjected to a detailed study. The total risk associated with each case was analyzed using a number of criteria. The most efficient financing mechanism is the one that diversifies and allocates the risks of a project to the parties that are best able to absorb them. The formulation of the framework has been based on the nature of financing mechanisms used in the state and the parameters generally used for analysing the projects considering the socioeconomic conditions and regulatory considerations.
