What is it?

NIIF stands for National Investment and Infrastructure Fund. It is an Indian-government backed entity established to provide long-term capital to the country’s infrastructure sector.

Budget 2015 set the ball rolling for its creation and NIIF was set up as an alternative investment fund (AIF) in December 2016 with a planned corpus of ₹40,000 crore.

The Indian government has 49 per cent stake in NIIF with the rest held by marquee foreign and domestic investors such as Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Temasek and HDFC Group. With the Centre’s significant stake, NIIF is considered India’s quasi sovereign wealth fund.

Across its three funds: Master Fund, Fund of Funds, and Strategic Fund — NIIF manages $3 billion of capital.

Its portfolio now includes investments in ports and logistics, real estate and renewables. It is also said to have put in bids for four airports — Jaipur, Lucknow, Ahmedabad and Mangaluru — in the recent auctions.
