According to the bank's website, "The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has supported the state government of West Bengal (GOWB) with two consecutive fiscal consolidation programs, which have enabled GOWB in making significant improvements in fiscal management. The savings from expenditure rationalization and improved revenue administration have been gainfully employed towards capital assets creation and better service quality. Encouraged by the success of the ensuing reform measures, there is a visible momentum in the state government towards further efficiency enhancement using information technology as the enabler and expanding the scope of these reforms to other departments taking a One Government' approach. The proposed program will further strengthen financial management procedures, operational efficiencies, and harmonization across departments, parastatals and urban local bodies for more fiscal savings, informed decision-making, and better service delivery. The program is aligned with ADB's India country partnership strategy for 2018 2022 which emphasizes public sector management, among other, thrust areas for inclusive provision of infrastructure and services...."

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.
