India: Maharashtra Feeder Separation and High Voltage Distribution System Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50193-001 Status: Active

The technical assistance (TA) is included in the India country operations business plan, 2016- 2018. A stand-alone fact-finding mission was not fielded as sufficient information had been gathered based on ongoing studies and consultation missions to proceed with TA processing. The TA is being processed separately and in advance of the concept paper for the expected Maharashtra Feeder Separation and High Voltage Distribution System Project to allow timely deployment of required consultants so that the processing team can plan for fact-finding mission in 2017. The Government of Maharashtra is considering the Asian Development Bank (ADB) lending assistance of about $400 million to finance the government's investment plan for electricity distribution to be taken up by the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL).
