Description

This objective will be attained by (i) providing rural habitations in the most poorly connected states-initially Assam, Orissa, and West Bengal, and any other states meeting the Investment Program requirements-with all-weather road connections; and (ii) improving efficiency and sustainability of PMGSY implementation in these states by providing support for capacity building in technical, safeguard, financial management, and road safety aspects. The Investment Program will build and upgrade about 30,000 km of rural roads to an all-weather standard; they are expected to connect about 19,000 habitations to a greater transportation network.
