|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||North Eastern Region (NER) forms a distinct geographical unit, representing about 8% of the country''s geographic area. 98% of its borders are with other countries - Bangladesh, Bhutan, the People's Republic of China, Myanmar, and Nepal. Its connection with the rest of the country is only through a narrow land corridor. Except in Assam, NER has predominantly hilly to mountainous terrain and very high rainfall (among the highest in the world), which frequently results in landslides and floods. Realizing the need for accelerated development, the Government of India (GOI) places special focus on the development of NER in its five-year plans, mainly through central funding of development activities in the region. Over the last two decades the government has required 10% of the budgets of central ministries and departments to be allocated for NER, and created a funding mechanism for pooling the unspent allocated central funds for further assistance to the region. However, the recent growth performance of these states has not been encouraging. With the recognition that inadequate roads and bridges supporting road transport, the region's single most dominant transport mode, is a major constraint on development efforts, the government started a national investment program to improve road connectivity to remote places in the region. The Special Accelerated Road Development Program in the North Eastern Region (SARDP-NE) is to improve higher class roads including national highways and state roads in the region, and provide connectivity to the state capitals and district headquarters in NER by developing two-lane national highways. The investment program was developed in parallel with SARDP-NE and complementary to it. While SARDP-NE focuses on improving higher class roads, the investment program is developed to improve intrastate connectivity, mainly to district headquarters and other places of administrative and economic importance in the individual states, and enhancing capacity of state Public Works Departments (PWDs) to manage their road assets.|
