SARDP-NE and LWE likely to be subsumed under Bharatmala

As per reports, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) is planning to expand the scope of the Bharatmala programme by bringing the Special Accelerated Road Development Programme for North Eastern Region and areas affected by left-wing extremism under its ambit. Under the first phase of Bharatmala approved by the cabinet committee in October 2017, only 10,000 km of national highways will remain under the National Highways Development Programme, while the rest have been subsumed under Bharatmala.
