According to the bank website, the proposed project will "support the knowledge-driven operational approach of the country partnership strategy (CPS) of India, 2018-20221 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), by assisting the investment planning, project preparation, and capacity development for their implementation in India's less-developed north eastern region (NER). The TA meets the CPS priorities on inclusive access to infrastructure and social services in low income states, and regional integration and cooperation (RCI).
The TA will provide the knowledge and capacity support in Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, and Tripura, following the specific requests by the concerned state governments. Along with supporting the activities of the concerned state agencies, the TA will also strengthen the roles and functions of North Eastern Council (NEC) and Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (MDONER) to support the activities in those states. The KSTA has been included in India's Country Operational Business Plan (2019-2021)."

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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
