Jaipur: All the village roads which were constructed under the Prime Minister Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) around a decade ago will get a facelift.
The 13th finance commission has allocated Rs 48 crore for repairing of rural roads. Besides, public works department will incur Rs 303 crore for the purpose this year. In the first phase 800 km roads would be repaired.
OP Saini Principal Secretary of PWD said, "Roads which were built a decade ago would be repaired in the first phase of the project.” The scheme was launched in 2001-02 for better connectivity in the villages.
The principal secretary has also demanded a status report on roads from all the districts which have completed the defect liability period. We will launch a nine-day campaign from June 7 to collect the status report on the roads built under the defect liability clause. After collecting the report, a massive road repair and strengthening campaign would be launched, said the principal secretary.
