India and ADB
In the Spotlight
Since its first loan to India in 1986, ADB has contributed to the country’s transformation through support in areas including infrastructure development, finance sector reform, agriculture and clean energy.
A fast-growing solar power industry in India's Rajasthan will soon be transmitting up to 8,000MW of renewable energy to the national grid. A $800 million program is supporting this effort.
ADB has approved a multitranche financing facility (MFF) worth up to $500 million for an investment program to help improve connectivity as well as transport efficiency and safety on state highways of Rajasthan in northern India.
ADB supports India’s vision of faster, inclusive, and sustainable growth. The latest Development Effectiveness Brief captures the core of ADB's operations in India and showcases select interventions that are helping the government achieve its development goals.
ADB assistance supports India’s evolving priorities. The country partnership strategy, 2013–2017 for India aims to support the government’s Twelfth Five-Year Plan priorities of “faster, more inclusive, and sustainable growth.” In line with the government’s guiding principle that multilateral development partners add value beyond tangible investments, ADB builds in innovations and best practices in project design and implementation.
The country operations business plan, 2017–2019 reflects a continued finetuning of the ADB program in support of the government’s priority areas and flagship initiatives.
India is a member of the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) program.
