1.NHAI set to make FY 2021 the best year of highway construction

Pratap Padode, Founder & President, FIRST Construction Council lauded the authorities on the decision to defer the implementation of the emission norms for construction equipment to 1st April 2021. He further urged the authorities to advocate a land pooling method by stating, "As part of the National Infrastructure Pipeline, the roads sector would elicit an expenditure of Rs. 3.24 trillion in FY 2020 alone apart from its total allocation of nearly Rs. 19 trillion over five years until 2025. With land costs constituting 40 per cent of the cost of roads from only 10-15 per cent barely seven years ago, the failing of the Land Acquisition Act is hurting the stability of this model. I have been constantly recommending abandoning the purchase of land for road construction and deploying innovative land pooling instead, which will save the country over Rs. 2 trillion."
