About AUIIP

The Assam Urban Infrastructure Investment Program (AUIIP), the Program, funded by Asian Development Bank (ADB), is a key urban infrastructure initiative of the Government of Assam (GoA), and aims to improve the urban environment and quality of life in the cities of Guwahati and Dibrugarh.

The Guwahati Development Department (GDD) is the Executive Agency (EA) for Guwahati town and Urban Development Department (UDD) is the Executing Agency (EA) for Dibrugarh town.

The Investment Program supports the Government of India (GoI)’s 11th Five-Year Plan (FYP, April 2007 to March 2012), which recognizes infrastructure bottlenecks and lack of long-term funds as binding constraints in achieving its goals. The Program is designed on Multi Tranche Financing Facility (MFF) of ADB and Project 1 will be implemented over a 6-year period from 2012 to end of 2017 and Project 2 will be implemented over a 5-year period from 2016 to 2021.

On 30 September 2011, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the mutitranche financing facility (MFF) for the Assam Urban Infrastructure Investment Program (AUIIP), or the Investment Program, for an amount of $200 million, to improve the urban environment and promote ongoing reforms for sustainable, efficient, and responsive urban service delivery in Guwahati and Dibrugarh in the State of Assam. Subsequently, Tranche 1 of AUIIP amounting to $81 million (Project 1, Loan 2806-IND) was approved on 18 November 2011, became effective on 25 April 2012 and is expected to be completed on 30 June 2018. On government’s request, $20 million was cancelled reducing Tranche 1 to $61 million in March 2014. The Government of Assam (GoA) has recently submitted a request for further cancellation of $10 million from Tranche 1 to the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) for endorsement and onward submission to ADB. The MFF availability period was originally expected to end on 30 June 2018. With the current status of implementation, GOA has also requested to DEA an extension of MFF.

Project 1 initially included subprojects for improvements in (i) water supply, sewerage, and bus rapid transit system (BRTS) in Guwahati, (ii) drainage in Dibrugarh, (iii) solid waste management in Dibrugarh, and (iv) capacity building and implementation support. On 17 November 2014, ADB approved a minor change in scope of the Investment Program to allow GOA to exclude the two subprojects for sewerage and BRTS and include a new subproject for urban drainage in Guwahati.
