The TNIFMC will roll out and manage new infrastructure finance vehicles (IFV)-the Infrastructure Debt Fund, Alternative Investment Fund and Infrastructure Investment Trust, as per guidelines of market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India.

These funds would be used to lend to/invest in public projects, PPPs (public-private-partnership projects) and private projects, the government had said earlier.
