Government of Himachal Pradesh has launched a new scheme for development of roads to connect villages across the state. The government has announced the new scheme named as Mukhya Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana in the financial budget 2016-17.
Under the Mukhya Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, the state government will develop road connectivity between villages/habitations and cities. The state government received grievances regarding partial connectivity due to non-construction of end roads penetrating into the heart of habitations.
The state government has launched the new scheme in order to provide better and easy facility to the villages and reduce the lifestyle and economic development gap between cities and villages.
The state government has set aside Rs. 50 Crore for the Mukhya Mantri Sadak Yojana for the financial year 2016-17.
The state government has also approved the second phase of the Himachal Pradesh Road Project worth Rs. 3220 Crore.
