Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, presided over a meeting with officials from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on Tuesday. The primary focus of the meeting was to improve work efficiency and incorporate innovative technology to accelerate the development of National Highways.

During the discussions, General (Dr) VK Singh (Retd), the Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways and Civil Aviation, and other high-ranking officials were present. Gadkari introduced two mobile applications designed to enhance efficiency and improve the commuting experience on National Highways. The first application, called 'RajmargYatra,' is a citizen-centric mobile app equipped with a built-in complaint redressal system. The second app, 'NHAI One,' aims to streamline the essential on-site requirements for executing National Highway Projects.

Additionally, Gadkari inaugurated NHAI's inaugural 'Sustainability Report for FY 2021-22,' which provides an overview of NHAI's governance structure, operational nature, stakeholder engagement, as well as its initiatives regarding environmental and social responsibility. Furthermore, he launched a book titled 'Road Development in India,' offering a comprehensive account of the history of the nation's National Highway network.

Addressing the officials, Gadkari emphasised the critical importance of accurate preparation and practical verification of the Detailed Project Report (DPR). This approach aims to minimize project delays, reduce construction costs, promote the use of environmentally sustainable materials, and ensure proper road alignment. He also stressed the need for citizen-centric services and shared his vision for various aspects of National Highway development, urging NHAI officials to strive towards building a world-class National Highways network in the country.

The introduction of the 'RajmargYatra' and 'NHAI One' mobile apps, along with the release of the Sustainability Report and the book on road development, highlights the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and NHAI's commitment to advancing India's National Highway infrastructure. These initiatives prioritise efficiency, citizen satisfaction, and sustainable practices.
