Project Outcome

Description of Outcome
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
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.

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 2016.

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 individual projects supported by the TA, the sponsoring agencies from state governments are represented in relevant PPPAC meetings etc. Also, in the project design stage the views of sponsoring agencies are sought for various stages of approval, in an iterative manner.
During Project Implementation Consultation and participation are elements of PPP process to create a sign-off from sponsoring agencies, regarding various facets of the projects. However, 'implementation' of the PPP projects happens subsequent to award of projects, when private sector takes the lead.

Business Opportunities
