ADB funding 31,000 km rural roads

To support development programmes in India, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is involved in constructing or upgrading 31,000 km of rural roads in the five lagging states of Assam, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and West Bengal. This is being done by lending support to separate projects under the Prime Minister´s Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) that focuses on connecting habitations that are inaccessible in rural areas. Over 12,500 villages previously not served are being connected in the five states by new stretches of rural roads. ADB has launched a report, ¨India Development Effectiveness Brief 2014.¨
