Projects worth ₹100 lakh crore across sectors such as rail, road, aviation, digital, to get a boost. To accelerate the implementation of infrastructure plans worth ₹100 lakh crore over the nation at both the Central and State levels and takedown logistics charges, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday originated the ‘PM GatiShakti - National Master Plan’ for multi-modal connectivity to economic zones with ambitious aims in the areas of road, railways, aviation, clean energy, and digital connectivity.
The project will incorporate infrastructure schemes of various Ministries and State Governments designed and executed with a shared vision, per a tweet by the Prime Minister’s Office. The plan will incorporate projects under existing flagship schemes under different Ministries including Bharatmala, Sagarmala, Bharat Net, Udaan, and the expansion of road and railway networks and inland waterways.
It is expected that the Master Plan, which was announced by the PM this year on August 15 and has been designed to be in order with the Aatmanirbhar Bharat vision, would also promote projects under the $1.5-trillion National Infrastructure Pipeline.
