Keeping in mind the government’s thrust towards digitisation, NHAI has recently launched a smartphone application that will enable travellers to rate national highways in the country. Deepak Kumar, Chairman, NHAI, also launched a multilingual website along with a Project Monitoring Information System (PMIS).
PMIS has nearly 180 data fields for each project and an additional 500 fields for PPP projects spanning matrics such as contracting, design, construction, land acquisition, toll, traffic and concession information.
The application has been launched for both Apple and Android devices and has several features such as check-in, task manager and an option to upload images. Further, there are plans of also launching PMIS for the public too, in order to enable everyone to view the status of any highway project in real-time.
The launched website shows information about NHAI, its projects and policies, human resources in a user-friendly manner using state-of-the-art technology. This will allow for accountability and transparency in the whole process. Reportedly, an algorithm will also help show any major pending issues, so a solution for the same can be reviewed by the team.
