India - Technical Assistance For Private Power Development Project (English)

The overall purpose of the Technical Assistance Project for Private Power Development is to ensure that the basic objectives of the private power initiative are achieved, i.e., that additional investment capital and management expertise are mobilized and that the potential efficiency gains in power supply are fully realized and passed on to the final consumers. The project will cover technical assistance activities to be essentially carried out in the form of advisory services extended to state electricity boards (SEBs) and other power utilities planning to enter into agreements with private parties for the purchase of power, the takeover of distribution activities or the management of existing facilities. They will include inter alia the provision of financial, legal and technical advisory services to review outstanding project proposals and assist in contract negotiations, and assistance to SEBs to enable them to prepare and package new projects well enough for them to invite meaningful bids, and help them in the bidding, evaluation, selection, and negotiation process. The latter will focus on instilling, to the extent possible, some degree of competition among project developers, and on assisting in the implementation of other forms of private sector participation.
