Objectives and Scope The Fund aims to mobilize resources for private investment in infrastructure in India and thereby reduce critical infrastructure bottlenecks and address a major impediment to economic growth.
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Fund contributes to the country strategy and program (CSP) for India by mobilizing resources for private investment in infrastructure, thereby reducing critical infrastructure bottlenecks and addressing a major impediment to economic growth. It also complements other ADB initiatives in India, such as the long-term loan facility, because equity investment enables infrastructure companies to buy fixed assets for expansion, which can be used as collateral for loan finance.
Status of Development Objectives The Fund (i) helps India meet the infrastructure development requirements that are essential for sustained economic growth; (ii) support the government's strategy of encouraging private sector participation in infrastructure development; (iii) mobilize long-term capital in the form of private equity from private sources for infrastructure development; and (iv) diversify sources of finance available to infrastructure companies.
