ADB's Work in India

India is a founding member of ADB and the bank’s fourth largest shareholder. Since commencing operations in 1986, ADB has aligned its operations in the country to the government’s developing priorities. This approach will be pursued through the forthcoming country partnership strategy, 2023–2027. ADB remains committed to reinvigorating India’s economy to generate more formal jobs, help address climate challenges, and assist lower-income states. ADB operations also promote private sector development, gender empowerment, regional integration, knowledge solutions, and capacity development.
