Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Government of India launched the Make in India program in 2014, building on National Manufacturing Policy of 2012, aiming to boost manufacturing sector growth to 12% 14%, raise its share of GDP to 25%, and generate employment for 100 million people by FY2025. The program identified industrial corridors as a policy instrument to expand the manufacturing base through reforms in ease of doing business, logistics facilities, multimodal transport, smart cities, and FDI liberalization, to be pursued in an integrated manner.

The PBL will strengthen industrial corridor management by supporting integration of institutions and synchronization of policies between federal and state governments. The technical and policy advisory, human resources, and program management capacity of NICDCL will be strengthened. Identified gaps in the industrial operating ecosystem was used in developing the policy matrix. Policy actions to support development of the green corridor framework; launch of industrial land bank; upgrading of the Industrial Park Rating System; integration of the national single window clearance system; development of a framework for inclusive housing of workers; and linking industrial corridor development with the Skill India initiative are included to ensure synergy between the industrial corridor development program and the reform agenda of India. Proposed loan is a logical extension of ADB's engagement in corridor development at the state level. NICDIT is expected to fund SPVs for projects within industrial corridors through fund transfers from the center to the state.
