Project Description

According to the bank website, "the Chennai -Kanyakumari Industrial Corridor: Power Sector Investment Project will address the core problem of meeting the expected industrial power demand to ensure reliable power supply by augmenting the power transmission capacity between the southern part of the state (Madurai -Thoothukudi), the northern region (Chennai), and the western region (Coimbatore) at 765 kilovolt (kV) level.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
