This chapter explains the reason why Anil Bordia preferred a specific investment project to a sector investment project, and describes the sharp divergence of views between the Union Department of Education and the UP Government over the scope, coverage, and content of the UP Project, and the resultant test of wills and bitter policy conflict. It also attempts to explain the conflict in terms of centre–state relations, Bank finance of ‘state’ projects, negotiation theory and theories of decision making in the government. It also describes how in the face of the stalemate over the ‘test case’ UP Project the author began to think about alternatives, and how the choice fell on the District Primary Education Programme.

Keywords:   UP Project, Types of Bank funding, centre–state conflict over project parameters, District Primary Education Programme
