CCEA
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has approved the proposals of continuation of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana-I and II (PMGSY) up to September 2022 for completion of balance road and bridge works aimed at providing road connectivity to remote and sanctioned road projects worth ₹33,822 crore for improving infrastructure across 44 districts in nine states and extension of the road connectivity project in naxal-affected areas. The extension to the initiatives would facilitate connectivity to 2,432 habitations that are yet to be connected by road out of the total 1,84,444 habitations that were to be connected by road. Besides roads, 2,228 bridges will also be built under the initiative. Under PMGSY-II, only 4,240 km of road length and 254 bridges are yet to be constructed, which will also be completed now. As many as 32,791 km of roads are remaining to be built under the PMGSY I&II and the road connectivity project in left-wing extremism-affected areas (RCPLWEA). Of the total ₹33,822 crore investment, the share of the Centre amounts to ₹22,978 crore, informed I&B Minister Anurag Thakur. A majority of the pending road-building projects are in the Himalayan and northeastern states and are now likely to be completed by 2024-25. The projects are part of PM's 'Sankalp Patra' issued in 2019 for providing roads to every village.
