The commissioner greeted the delegation, which included Pierre and Ankit from AFD and Delphine and Jatin from the EU, and expressed her gratitude to the EU for the grant in aid and AFD for the loan approval.

She said that discussions took place on several technical aspects of the project, including the detailed plan and the project's financial, environmental, and social implications.

The mode of procurement, mass adaptability, capacity building, project functionality, and public impact were among the other topics discussed.

The AFD or EU has given its approval to the Rs 591.57 crore project, according to Mitra.
