Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to to ADB documents,The Industrial Corridor Development Program (ICDP) supports the National Industrial Corridor Development Program of India (NICDP), a federal program of the government of India (GOI), which aims to develop world-class industrial nodes/parks well connected with multi-modal transport facilities and supported by a strong institutional and regulatory system.

The program will enhance the competitiveness of India's manufacturing sector by supporting implementation of the Government of India's National Industrial Corridor Development Program (NICDP). NICDP aims to enhance manufacturing sector's competitiveness through improved investment climate, well-functioning industrial nodes and industrial parks, and institutional reforms to attract large private sector investments. The proposed program supports policy reforms undertaken by the government to accelerate planning and implementation of NICDP across the industrial corridor states and enhances institutional setup for corridor development at national and state levels.

Subprogram 1 played a critical role in strengthening the institutional and regulatory framework developed by the federal government under the NICDP, and formulating policy and planning guidelines for states participating in the NIDCP. Subprogram 2 is intended to (i) ensure that the policies developed under subprogram 1 are implemented through development of master plans in five new nodes and in all future nodes in corridor areas,3 and (ii) facilitate private sector engagement in corridors by improving efficiency of business processes and thereby attracting more investment in industrial nodes.

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry, through the Department of Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, will continue to be the executing agency, and the NICDIT and the NICDCL will be the implementing agencies. The implementation period for subprogram 1 was from April 2020 to January 2022, while for subprogram 2, it is from February 2022 to October 2023.


People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

Subprogram 2 is classified category B for the environment and C for involuntary resettlement and indigenous peoples in accordance with ADB’s Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). Potential impacts associated with the prior actions supported by subprogram 2 have been assessed. They are not expected to directly cause adverse environmental impacts because there is no investment component. However, some prior actions may have indirect adverse environmental impacts related to downstream investment in industrial nodes. These impacts are not anticipated to be significant at a regional or sector level. No prior action will directly entail any involuntary resettlement or adversely affect indigenous peoples. 

Investment Description
Here you can find a list of individual development financial institutions that finance the project.

The government has requested a regular loan of $250 million from ADB’s ordinary capital resources to help finance subprogram 2.

Based on the straight-line method, the average maturity is 9.25 years, and there is no maturity premium payable to ADB.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice.
