Project Description

According to the bank website,"the proposed Additional Financing (AF) of US$105 million International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) Loan has been requested by the state government of UP through the Department of Economic Affairs, Government of India (GoI). Given the nature of project activities, the AF will use the Investment Project Financing (IPF) instrument using traditional input financing. The DLIs approach in original project has significantly contributed in bringing policy level changes related to institutional reform such as introduction of technical cells in the directorate, implementation of personal information system, regularization of facility level reporting etc. The activities under AF are leaning towards input-based financing and has limited scope for DLIs.
