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.


FMO considers investing in North Haven India Infrastructure Fund ("NHIIF", the "Fund"), an Indian private equity fund focusing on investments mostly in asset-light infrastructure. The Fund is managed by Morgan Stanley Investment Management Private Limited.


FMO will support establishment of the first India focused infrastructure fund managed by the international and reputable investment division of Morgan Stanley. NHIIF targets to invest significant minority or majority stakes in companies active in three segments: (i) energy and utilities, (ii) mobility and logistics, and (iii) social infrastructure (healthcare, education).


The Fund will invest in private companies building physical and societal infrastructure required to enable large groups of population in India to benefit from economic efficiencies as well as improved services and social welfare.


The Fund's E&S category is A due to focus on infrastructure in India. Risks associated to these projects are mitigated through the Fund's ESMS that incorporates requirements to meet domestic E&S requirements in India and Morgan Stanley's E&S Polices which are based on the best international practices.

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. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW) . A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at:
