About Us

The project’s institutional and implementation arrangements are based on standard practice in Uttar Pradesh for externally aided projects, which includes an Empowered Committee, a Steering Committee and specific project implementation entities, as described below. Below is a detailed description of each level of the project’s institutional and implementation arrangements.

At the state level, the project is implemented through the following institutions :

(a) An Empowered Committee, chaired by the Chief Secretary, GoUP, convened by the Principal Secretary/Secretary of Tourism, and comprising state government officials from departments related to the project, has been established and is providing high-level policy guidance and support to inter-departmental coordination for the project.

(b) A Steering Committee, chaired by the Principal Secretary/Secretary of Tourism, coordinated by a full-time Project Director from the Department of Tourism, and comprising state government officials from key departments for the project, has also been established to provide administrative guidance and to ensure that critical aspects of project implementation are addressed in a timely manner.

(c) The Department of Tourism is the implementing agency, responsible for overall project preparation, management, coordination and accountability of the project’s implementation.

(d) A State Project Coordination Unit (SPCU) in Lucknow, working under the overall guidance of the Principal Secretary/Secretary of Tourism, and chaired by a Project Director has been established and is being staffed with DoT officials and competitively selected specialists in financial management, procurement, environmental management, civil engineering, heritage conservation and social development. The SPCU supports the Department of Tourism in the project’s overall implementation by ensuring compliance with government and World Bank standards, project monitoring, the review and consolidation of annual work plans, hiring of consultants and supervision of works, among other functions

While the Department of Tourism manages most project activities, the following structures support implementation at the destination level:

(e) The Development Authorities in each of the destinations. Following current practice in the state, these authorities serve as the Implementing Entities (IEs) in each core area and are responsible for, inter alia, coordination with local authorities and sector agencies in planning and monitoring, and ensuring adequate operation and maintenance of subprojects and activities financed by the project.

(f) Technical Support Units (TSUs), consisting of specialists hired from a range of fields, will support the Development Authorities through on-the-job technical support and training.
