India: State Road Safety Incentive Program

Sovereign (Public) Project | 53336-001 Status: Proposed

The SRSIP will provide incentives by way of grant funds to eight focus states, for progressive improvement of effective road safety. A dynamic ranking system, based on monthly and yearly performance, in road safety interventions, will be set in place for the states. The indicators for measuring performance will be at outcome levels for accident fatalities, as well as identified interventions covering institutional, accident risk mitigation, accident response, and awareness. Subject to specified metrics being achieved, MORTH would pass on ADB's financial assistance and funds from its budgetary sources as a grant to the states.

Description The SRSIP will provide incentives by way of grant funds to eight focus states, for progressive improvement of effective road safety. A dynamic ranking system, based on monthly and yearly performance, in road safety interventions, will be set in place for the states. The indicators for measuring performance will be at outcome levels for accident fatalities, as well as identified interventions covering institutional, accident risk mitigation, accident response, and awareness. Subject to specified metrics being achieved, MORTH would pass on ADB's financial assistance and funds from its budgetary sources as a grant to the states.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The results-based lending modality (RBL) is the most suitable for SRSIP on account of the following factors:

(i) Road safety in India is a difficult area of intervention given the nature of the causes and remedial interventions, multiplicity of agencies involved, and mix of strategy and specific actions.

(ii) MORTH has already spent over two years in developing the framework and institutional structure, which demonstrates strong interest and ownership of the government.

(iii) While NRSP aims to set up the various central- and state-level institutions and governance mechanisms, further efforts are required for making these operational and effective.

(iv) ADB has a large road-sector portfolio in India. However, interventions on road safety are generally through engineering interventions or in ancillary terms, like safety audits. Addressing road safety issues in a systematic and comprehensive way will leverage ADB financing and improve positive impacts of ADB's involvement in India's road sector.

(v) SRSIP is a results-based program, incentivizing states to achieve better results in road safety, and offer opportunities for harmonization with other development partners.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The program's environmental and social impact will be assessed, and a safeguard systems assessment report will be prepared as necessary, including the Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) policy principles that will be likely applied to the SRSIP.
Involuntary Resettlement The program is not expected to entail land acquisition due to civil works. Involuntary resettlement impacts and issues will be confirmed during program due diligence and further processing.
Indigenous Peoples The program is not expected to entail impacts on indigenous peoples. The program awareness campaign and information dissemination will be ensured to be accessible to all in terms of language used and distribution of road safety materials.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The general population of the states participating in the program will be the primary beneficiary followed by the commuters and road users, line and state agencies, transport-related institutions, and businesses. Widespread consultations and focus group discussions shall be conducted for the program in all participating states to obtain the views of the community, in particular, women and the vulnerable, about the program and its potential benefits.
During Project Implementation
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultant recruitment will be carried out under ADB's Procurement Policy and Regulations (2017).

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
