Description Maharashtra Rural Connectivity Improvement Project (Additional Financing) is programmed as a 2022 firm project for $150 million in ADB's country operations business plan 2020-2022 for India. The Government of India requested to advance the loan to 2020 and increase the amount to $300 million during the tripartite portfolio review meeting and the ensuing reconnaissance mission in October 2019.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The additional financing is proposed to scale up the road condition and safety improvement works of 3,300 km rural roads and urgently rehabilitate bridges to enhance flood resilience and climate adaptation in response to the severe August 2019 floods. The additional scopes are strongly linked to the ongoing project's scopes and can be efficiently implemented under the same implementation arrangements. These roads will enhance Maharashtra's agriculture value chain together with a planned project for agribusiness network development. The overall project scope is aligned with the government's priorities under the Mukhya Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (MMGSY) program and ADB's country partnership strategy.
