Preference will be given to PPP projects that are awarded to private sector companies selected through a competitive bidding process.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy


The project was included on the request of the GoI during the India Programming Mission (4-8 September 2006). As per the India Country Operations Business Plan 2007-09, the government re-affirmed its need to seek ADB assistance to core infrastructure areas such as transport, energy, and urban sectors in addition to agribusiness, infrastructure, and irrigation and water management systems. The proposed IIPFF fits well with the country strategy and the priority of the GoI.
