Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The TAC has resulted in 21 well prepared, ready for implementation projects for $6 billion for ADB?s India program (2006-2010). This was achieved over 24 months of TAC implementation. Through project preparatory activities and detailed design activities, the 24 component TAs (CTAs) included under the TAC have directly contributed to enhancing project preparedness, improving project design, and strengthening effective implementation capacity under ADB?s India program. The TAC significantly improved the efficiency of preparing, processing, and approving TAs, aided by the TAC?s simplified procedure.

The TAC has been responsive to the Government?s need for comprehensive project preparation, improved efficiency, and enhanced ownership of project preparation and implementation under ADB?s India program.

Of the $15 million allocated, a total of $12.5 million was committed through 130 contracts. All the contracts were physically completed by 30 June 2008. A total of $7 million had been disbursed by 31 May 2008.

The TAC has responded well to Government?s emphasis on the need for greater project preparedness in ADB projects. The TAC has delivered its intended outcomes, namely, improving project implementation readiness, strengthening local capacity and ownership, and enhancing the efficiency of project preparation and implementation.

The Government has recognized the flexibility and responsiveness the TAC offers in relation to improving project preparedness under ADB?s India program. It has appreciated the TAC?s flexibility in addressing the advisory, capacity?building, and project preparatory requirements of new sectors and of the comparatively less developed states. The TAC has highlighted the importance of supporting project readiness for timely and cost-effective delivery of ADB?s India program.
