India is witnessing a remarkable phase in its infrastructure development, particularly in the construction of national highways. The pace at which these crucial arteries of connectivity are being built is a testament to the country’s commitment to enhancing its transportation network.

During the first seven months of the current financial year, India has achieved an impressive construction rate of 20.78 kilometers per day for its national highways, as per official figures.

The period under review also saw the allocation of projects covering 2,595 kilometers, a significant figure though slightly less than the 5,007 kilometers allocated during the same period last year. This year-on-year comparison highlights the ongoing commitment to expanding India’s highway network, despite the varying pace of project allotments.

By October 2023, the Ministry has successfully constructed 4,474 kilometers of national highways. This achievement in the 2023-24 financial year marks a considerable milestone in India’s infrastructure journey, paving the way for more efficient transportation and trade.

One of the most ambitious aspects of India’s road infrastructure development is the Bharatmala project. This project aims to extend the national highway network to 550 districts across the country. Currently, about 300 districts are connected, indicating significant progress yet underscoring the scope for further expansion. The Bharatmala project is a strategic initiative, promising to revolutionize transportation and connectivity in India.
