ADB's support to India aims to accelerate economic transformation by building industrial competitiveness, creating jobs, accelerating growth of low-income states, and addressing environmental and climate change challenges.
ADB’s lending operations to India started in 1986, and the India Resident Mission was opened in 1992. The resident mission provides the primary operational link for activities between ADB and the government, the private sector, civil society stakeholders, and development partners. It engages in policy dialogue, country partnership strategy development and programming, and portfolio management, while also acting as a knowledge base on development issues in India.
The India government agency handling ADB affairs is the Department of Economic Affairs in the Ministry of Finance.
