Description The TA supports the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) PPP Cell, state governments (not covered under other ADB PPP TA), relevant urban local bodies (ULBs), line ministries and sector departments towards developing an enabling PPP environment and building a bankable PPP project pipeline.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Provision of enhanced PPP Cell in DEA to expand PPP mainstreaming efforts to cover additional states, relevant urban local bodies, line ministries and sector departments.
Impact Improved provision of infrastructure and delivery of service in additional states (at state, ULB, and line ministry/sector department levels)
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Improved public sector capacities to develop, implement, and monitor infrastructure PPP projects.
Progress Toward Outcome The TA has enabled DEA to appraise PPP project proposals from states, ULBs, line ministries and sector departments for approval and subsequent implementation and monitoring.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

Creation of an enhanced PPP Cell at DEA to build capacity at additional state government entities

Increased PPP project pipelines from additional states previously not covered by ADB TA projects

Development of a number of bankable project structures for replication across relevant sectors

Development of PPP enabling toolkits, structures, and documents

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Currently, 5 individual consultants (both independent and from firm) are engaged under the TA for the enhanced PPP cell at DEA. Also, two additional new recruitments are underway.

ADB's support through this TA is critical since experts engaged under this TA do background work on Viability Gap Funding (VGF), India Infrastructure Project Development Fund (IIPDF) and support Public Private Partnership Appraisal Committee (PPPAC), which helps Government of India decide on many PPP projects across sectors and states. The TA, which was originally scheduled to close by 29 February 2012, had been extended thrice, till 31 December 2014.

The TA services have been greatly appreciated by DEA, and the experts have performed satisfactorily. Given the GOI objectives in terms of infrastructure development, and the difficulties of developing and structuring PPPs, especially in challenging sectors, the continuation of support from TA experts is very much needed. Therefore, GOI requested ADB for continuation of support and ADB processed the request. In April'14, increase in TA financing of $0.5 million and extension of TA closing date up to 31 December 2016 has been approved.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design For the individual projects supported by the TA, the stakeholders such as state governments are represented in relevant PPPAC meetings etc. Also, in the process design stage the view of the stakeholders is sought for various stages of approval in an iterative manner.
During Project Implementation Stakeholder consultation and participation is an element of PPP implementation process to create a buy-in regarding various facets of the projects. However, during 'implementation' of the PPP projects the private sector takes the lead.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services Consultants are recruited under the TA in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time).
