Govt adopts one time NHs upgrade plans

    national highways
    The transport ministry has agreed to the states demand for one-time improvement (OTI) works on national highways funded by the Centre. In this connection, the ministry of road transport and highways (MoRTH) has directed the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to carry out such works out of budgetary allocations or borrowed funds. This is so because, when a national highway (NH) stretch gets congested and another stretch is developed bypassing the existing one by the state, NHAI develops the new stretch burdening it with around Rs 1,000 crore a year. The ministry has been receiving several proposals for one-time improvement (OTI) works from states and NHAI for implementation under NH (O). Keeping in view the limited available budgetary allocations under NH (O) and the need to focus on development of existing non NHDP NHs and development of NHs approved in-principle in a time-bound manner, it has been decided that all new works of OTI, shall, henceforth, be implemented by NHAI, said official sources.
