According to bank documents, "The project aims to build an ultra-high voltage transmission corridor between the major economic centers of Chittagong and Dhaka. Scope of works of the project includes construction of “Madunaghat-Bhulta” 765-kilovolt (kV) double circuit line and the related extension of substations. The use of ultra-high voltage line will (a) help avoid building more transmission lines, thus saving valuable land and minimizing negative social impacts on a densely populated area; (b) allow the transmission of high volumes of electricity for the needs of a rapidly developing economy and (c) improve reliability and decrease system losses."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AIIB
The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM). The PPM provides “an opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIB’s failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.” Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint. Under the current AIIB policy, when the bank co-finances a project with another development bank, it may apply the other bank's standards. You can refer to the Project Summary Information document to find out which standards apply. You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/how-we-assist-you/index.html.
The complaint submission form can be accessed in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Chinese, English, Tagalog, Hindi, Nepali, Russian, Turkish, or Urdu. The submission form can be found at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/submission/index.html.
