During Project Design

This is a sequel to two earlier facilities - India Infrastructure Project Financing Facility I and II. This is in response to the vast infrastructure needs of India estimated at around $1 trillion and a continuing need to develop new models for infrastructure financing suitable to the Indian context and to further strengthen existing modalities. This facility will continue the success of the two earlier facilities while piloting new modalities for infrastructure financing through loan proceeds.

This facility will support public-private partnership (PPP) in infrastructure under (i) direct on-lending in the form of senior and subordinate debt to subprojects in line with IIFCL's mandate ("Scheme") and (ii) take-out financing. This will also broaden the scope from the previous facilities which, aside from take-out financing would also include renewable and clean energy projects and initiatives in the lagging states. This aspect will support the government's efforts in meeting growth targets, expand PPP initiatives and foster inclusive growth.

During Project Implementation

ADB will, at its discretion, conduct reviews of the management, financial, and operational performance of the borrower and subprojects financed under the AIIFI initially after the closing of withdrawals. The review will include procurement procedures utilized by the AIIFI-financed infrastructure projects.

The performance of AIIFI will be reviewed periodically at three levels - by IIFCL, (through the PMU on a quarterly basis), semi-annually by IIFCL's Board of Directors, and annually by ADB, and at the tripartite review meetings among GOI, ADB, and IIFCL. The review of performance for each quarter by the PMU will be completed by the 10th day of the month following the quarterly review. IIFCL's Board of Directors will review the performance semi-annually and will forward the semi-annual progress reports to ADB by the 10th day of the month following the semi-annual review. ADB will review the quarterly progress and semi-annual reports during the annual review missions and during the tripartite reviews chaired by the Government. In addition, a midterm review of the investment program will be conducted in FY2013-FY2018. The review will cover contract awards and disbursement, implementation progress including progress against institutional development and capacity building milestones, social and environmental aspects, and the status of the IPPMS. The midterm review will identify problems or weaknesses in the implementation arrangements, suggest nominal changes in scope, outputs, and due diligence, and agree on suggested changes.
