Review of Projects Under PM Gati Shakti NMP

The Ministry is primarily responsible for the development and maintenance of National Highways (NHs). 61 NHS / road projects / Corridors in about 13,858 km, including in the State of Odisha, for a total tentative cost of Rs. 6,68,808 Crores have been examined leveraging the PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan (NMP) Portal and were consulted within the Network Planning Group (NPG) of PM Gati Shakti NMP headed by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

The Detailed Project Report (DPR) module tool developed by the Ministry through Bhaskaracharya National Institute for Space Applications and Geoinformatics (BISAG-N) along with the available features in the dynamic Geographic Information System (GIS) platform based PM Gati Shakti NMP Portal is helpful for optimizing the NHs project alignments and planning of projects considering information related to existing physical/geographical features, forest areas, eco-sensitive areas, etc.,  in minimizing ecological impacts, requirements of clearances and faster and more effective project preparation.

This is expected to contribute significantly to the faster implementation of projects by obviating the need for mid-course corrections/revisions in project features during the project implementation phases.  

This information was given by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.
