India - Sustainable Urban Transport Project : restructuring (Vol. 2) : Data sheet (English)

The objective of the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) for India is to promote environmentally sustainable urban transport in India and to improve the usage of environment-friendly transport modes through demonstration projects in selected cities. SUTP has two components: (i) capacity development assistance for urban transport; and (ii) city demonstration projects involving design and implementation of high profile and replicable projects in the area of sustainable transport in select cities. Bank financing is utilized on demonstration projects in three cities, Pimpri Chinchwad and Pune (Maharashtra), and Naya Raipur (Chhattisgarh).This restructuring entails increasing the disbursement percentage of International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) funds from 28 to 72 percent for a subcomponent under the City Demonstration Project in Pimpri Chinchwad i.e. construction of two new road-cum-Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) corridors. While originally the idea was to fund the entire corridors (road stretches and structures), it is proposed to fund only the two major structures as the other packages have either been awarded or are in the process to utilize the counterpart funds (central and state funds). With this change the disbursement ratio for this sub-component will increase to 72 percent. There is no other change except that procurement guidelines apply only to the two structures now. A change to this effect will be made in the loan agreement.
