Priority for GP roads


The News Bureau, Feb 13

The model villages adopted by the Members of Parliament under the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) will get rural roads under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) on priority.

Rural roads constructed or upgraded under PMGSY should be maintained by the State Governments.

A decision to this effect was taken by Union Minister for Rural Development Birender Singh. The Centre has issued guidelines to accord priority in the sele

tion of roads for new connectivity in the Gram Panchayats identified by the MPs.

State Governments must give priority to all roads leading to the Gram Panchayats. In case of upgradation, priority would be given to the roads which have Pavement Condition Index (PCI).

The State Governments must ensure PCI of not less than four for all such roads at all times. Adequate funds for this purpose will be provided by State Governments.
