India's 11th Five Year Plan (FYP) views GDP growth not as an end in itself but as a means to reducing poverty. The 11th FYP emphasizes infrastructure development as one of the keys to promoting broad-based economic growth. ADB's strategy is closely aligned with India's strategy as outlined in the 11th FYP, including continued focus on infrastructure development, which includes energy and power sector infrastructure. Furthermore, ADB's strategy includes continued focus on lagging states; Bihar among them. As an adequate electric power supply is essential for sustainable economic growth, and such growth is co-related to poverty reduction, improved sector permance from this TA can benefit poverty reduction in India.
