Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch PM GatiShakti-National Master Plan for multi-modal connectivity on Wednesday at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
Due to the lack of coordination between different Departments Infrastructure creation in India had suffered for decades . It will incorporate the infrastructure schemes of various Ministries and State Governments like Bharatmala, Sagarmala, inland waterways, dry/land ports, UDAN etc.
PM Modi will also inaugurate the new exhibition complex (Exhibition Halls 2 to 5) at Pragati Maidan during the event. The India International Trade Fair (IITF), the flagship event of the India Trade Promotion Organisation, will be held in these new exhibition halls from November 14 to 27, the PMO noted. Union Ministers for Commerce, Road Transport and Highways, Railways, Civil Aviation, Shipping, Power, Petroleum and Natural Gas will also be present on the occasion. Describing it as a historic event for the nation’s infrastructure landscape, the PMO on Tuesday said that the GatiShakti project will break departmental silos and institutionalise holistic planning for the stakeholders across major infrastructure projects.
PM GatiShakti is the result of Prime Minister’s constant endeavour to build Next Generation Infrastructure which improves Ease of Living as well as Ease of Doing Business. The multi-modal connectivity will provide integrated and seamless connectivity for movement of people, goods and services from one mode of transport to another. It will facilitate the last mile connectivity of infrastructure and also reduce travel time for people.
PM GatiShakti will provide the public and business community information regarding the upcoming connectivity projects, other business hubs, industrial areas and surrounding environment.
