ROADS AND HIGHWAYS

FDI In Roads & Highways Sectors

The transport infrastructure sector is the fastest expanding component of the country's infrastructure sector. India has the one of largest road network across the world, spanning over a total of 5.5 million km. This road network transports 64.5% of all goods in the country and 90% of India’s total passenger traffic uses road network to commute. Road transportation has gradually increased over the years with the improvement in connectivity between cities, towns and villages in the country.

The Government of India (GoI) is planning to expand the national highway network to over 200,000 km. The Government launched the Bharatmala Pariyojana, which aims to build 66,100 km of economic corridors, border and coastal roads, and expressways to boost the highway network. It is envisaged that the programme will provide 4-lane connectivity to 550 districts, increase the vehicular speed by 20-25% and reduce the supply chain costs by 5-6%. The first phase of the programme will bring in $82 bn investments by 2022 for the development of 34,800 km of highways.

According to FDI policies for roads-highways sector, 100% FDI for roads and highways allowed under the automatic route.
