PM GatiShakti's NPG recommends six infrastructure projects

Six infrastructure projects have been suggested by the Network Planning Group (NPG) under PM GatiShakti. The six projects, one from MNRE, three from the Ministry of Railways, and two from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, were assessed by the NPG during a meeting, which then recommended them. The comprehensive and holistic development of these projects would be done in accordance with the PM GatiShakti principles. These initiatives will also boost the effectiveness of logistics across the nation and enable multimodal connection, smooth passenger and freight movement, and both.

Senior representatives from significant member ministries and departments actively participated in the 45 th session meeting, which was presided over by the Special Secretary (Logistics Division), DPIIT. The NPG looked into a project by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The project is for a renewable energy transmission infrastructure in Ladakh. According to officials, this unique initiative is a significant step towards the Government of India's goal of 500 GW of non-fossil fuel capacity by the year 2030.

A concept for city logistics for the elevated Kanpur Anwarganj-Mandhana railway line was presented by the Ministry of Railways. It is a city-specific initiative since it will improve regional city logistics and use more train capacity. The NPG also looked into a project by the Ministry of Railways to build a rail bridge over the Ganga in connection with a new railway line between Vikramshila and Katareah in Bihar.

The project is located near a Ganga stream around 40 kilometres from Bhagalpur. Through this project, the movement of cement to the Northeast and North Bihar regions, the Eastern Coal Field, and an increase in the production of stone chips, boulders, and other quarry products to five rakes per day would all be connected to economic nodes of food grains.

A second project plan for doubling the 178.28 km railway line between Ajmer and Chittaurgarh was looked at. The industrial and tribal belt, which includes the Rajasthani districts of Ajmer, Bhilwara, and Chittaurgarh, would be primarily served by this project.
