    Cost to fall with integrated transport & logistics policy: Nitin Gadkari
    [​IMG]"We’ll develop trunk infrastructure on our own and railways will be responsible for building last-mile rail routes."
    The government will launch an integrated transport and logistics policy aimed at increasing the average freight speed on highways to 50 km per hour and cutting costs by half, road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari has said.

    “The plan includes construction of 50 economic corridors, 35 logistics parks and 10 intermodal stations at a cost of Rs 5 lakh crore,” Gadkari told ET in an interview. Edited excerpts:


    Road construction target is set to hit a record of 8,000 km this fiscal. What are your targets for the next financial year?
    We are now coming out with an integrated transport and logistics framework which aims at increasing the average speed of freight transportation on the highways network from the current speed of 20-25 km per hour to 40-50 km per hour and to reduce the logistics cost by almost half.


    In the budget speech, the finance minister had said that a specific programme for the development of multimodal logistics parks, together with multimodal transport facilities, will be drawn up and implemented.

    The plan, being spearheaded by my ministry, will bring together road, rail, air and urban planning to provide seamless movement of freight traffic across states.


    What all does this plan involve and how’s it going to be funded?
    It involves construction of 50 economic corridors across the country and setting up of 35 logistics parks at the existing freight clusters at a cost of Rs 5 lakh crore. This will be the largest road construction programme ever undertaken by any government.

    India is a growing economy and the high cost of logistics, currently at 14 per cent of GDP, is having a negative effect.

    We’ll launch the integrated transport and logistics framework on Wednesday which will be followed by an inter-ministerial logistics summit in New Delhi from May 3 to 5 where the action plan will be finalised.

    As far as the funding part of economic corridors is concerned, we’ll do it through our budgetary allocation, raising NHAI bonds and also leasing out existing national highways to pension funds for collection of toll and operations at an upfront fee.

    We could easily do highway works worth Rs 2 lakh crore on our own. We’ll also be awarding some projects on the hybrid annuity model. For logistics parks, we are going to tie up with state governments that will provide land.

    We’ll develop trunk infrastructure on our own and railways will be responsible for building last-mile rail routes. Private players will be brought in for development and operations at logistics parks.

    How will the integrated transport and logistics policy reduce the congestion on highways and the cost for transporters?
    The policy is aimed at transforming India’s logistics from a point-to-point model to a hub-and-spoke model to achieve reduction in logistics costs.

    To start with, we’ll have 50 economic corridors which have already been identified and will be awarded for construction on both government-funded and PPP (public private participation) model from April.

    Most of these corridors are national highway expansion plans where two-lane highways will be expanded to six lanes. The move would increase the average distances covered by the freight vehicles from the existing 200-250 km to 350 km.

    Then we have identified 35 clusters accounting for 50 per cent of the total freight movement in the country for logistics parks development.

    We’ll form SPVs (special purpose vehicles) with state governments where the state will provide land on the outer periphery of urban centres and the Centre will provide trunk infrastructure such as feeder highways and rail connectivity.

    The private players will be invited to develop and maintain the logistics parks. The availability of such multimodal freight hubs will straightaway cut transport costs by 20 per cent.

    Also, urban transportation will be an integral part of this framework where we need to bring in new technologies such as Metrino and Hyperloop to decongest our roads. Soon, I am going to make a presentation to the Prime Minister on the future of urban transportation technologies.

    You’ve been pushing for electric cars ata mass scale and invited Tesla to set up a manufacturing base in India. What’s the progress on that?
    Last week I had a meeting with finance minister Arun Jaitley where I sought his support to offer subsidies for people buying electric cars. I also want that e-taxis should be allowed to run without any commercial permits as needed in the case of diesel or CNG taxis.

    This will immediately improve the sales of e-vehicles as the hassle of getting permits will be removed, hence reducing costs. I am in talks with several state governments for that.

    To start with, a cab aggregator is launching 300 e-taxis in Nagpur. I am providing the company full infrastructure support in terms of charging points. This will be the first large-scale trial of e-taxis in the country.

    IWAI's New Ro-Ro Terminal at Assam to Boost Cargo and Passenger Transport in North East
    The Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) carried out successful berthing operation of a vessel at its newly constructed permanent state-of-the-art Roll-on Roll-off (Ro-Ro) terminal built at a cost of Rs.46 crore on Brahmaputra river (National Waterway-2) in Assam's Dhubri district on March 4, 2017.

    IWAI's initiative opens a new gate of opportunities in the region by paving the way for drastically bridging the distance and cost for cargo and passenger movement between Dhubri and Hatsingimari which shares its border with Meghalaya.

    The Ro-Ro vessel, MV Gopinath Bordoloi which was flagged off from Haldia port (West Bengal) via the India-Bangladesh Protocol Route, successfully carried its first load from Dhubri terminal. Built at a cost of approximately Rs.10 crore, MV Gopinath Bordoloi is 46.50 metre long and 13.30 metre wide with a draft of 1.50 metre. It has a capacity to transport eight trucks and 200 passengers at a time.

    The IWAI vessel will be deployed for Ro-Ro service between Dhubri and Hatsingimari having a total waterway length of 29 KM. This new service will avoid the circuitous route of 220 KM to reach Meghalaya on the opposite side. Dhubri is one of the business hubs of Assam which is connected to Meghalaya presently through a road bridge over river Brahmaputra at Jogighopa. IWAI is also exploring other sites in North East to facilitate quick movement of goods and passengers across the rivers, effectively acting as floating bridges.

    With the development of national waterways being an integral part of the Centre’s plan to upgrade transport infrastructure in the country, work is afoot on National Waterway-1 (NW-1) linking Haldia to Allahabad. The projects on the river Ganga will boost the economies of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

    Under the National Waterways Act of 2016, the government has committed to developing 111 designated national waterways. Of these, NWs-1, 2, & 3 are partially operational. The national waterways would not only reduce logistics costs, but also lessen congestion on the road and rail networks, having a multiplier effect on the Indian economy.

    Work on NW-1 had been pending since 1990 due to hurdles posed by siltation. The shipping ministry has finally pushed the development of the Haldia-Varanasi stretch (1620 km) with projects for construction of multi-modal terminals at Varanasi, Haldia and Sahibganj, strengthening of the river navigation system, conservancy works, and development of information systems and night navigation facilities, besides construction of a navigational lock at Farakka.


    [​IMG]

    Amitabh Verma, till recently the chairman of the Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI), says “the Prime Minister’s project monitoring group is looking at the work on a day-to-day basis and all projects have to be completed in a time-bound manner.”

    Full operationalisation of the Haldia-Varanasi stretch would allow the navigation of vessels with a capacity of 1,500-2,000 tonnes, he says. The development of the waterway, expected to cost Rs 4,200 crore, has been taken up with assistance from the World Bank. Construction work for the multi-modal terminals at Haldia, Sahibganj and Varanasi has commenced. The terminal at Haldia would become a hub for transportation of cargo to the North East. The terminal, according to Verma, has already received a commitment of 5.92 million tonne per annum of cargo once it becomes operational in 2018. IWAI also plans to build a new navigational lock and modernise the existing one at Farakka.

    The terminal at Sahibganj in Bihar would further the transportation of coal to power plants. The terminal is expected to be operational by 2018. This project, according to IWAI officials, would help in the de-siltation of the river.


    In Bihar, the IWAI also envisages investment in terminals at Kalughat and Gaighat, ferry and RO-RO services and dredging. The Kalughat terminal would boost transportation of cargo from Kolkata to Nepal, reducing costs by 26% and 13% compared to the railways and road, respectively. An analysis by the World Bank has concluded that the project would lead to extensive economic and social development along the banks of the Ganga in Bihar.

    Work on the multi-modal terminal at Varanasi (Ramnagar) commenced in August 2016. Estimated to cost Rs 170 crore, it is
    expected to be operational by August 2018.

    The NW-1 projects are expected to create 1,60,000 direct and indirect jobs, Nitin Gadkari, union minister of shipping, has said. Besides being cheaper to develop than railways and roadways, waterways cost 25-30 paise per km of transport, as against R1 for railways and R1.50 for roadways. From the abysmal 3.5% at present, IWAI is aiming to increase waterway transportation of cargo in India to 15% by 2019. Even this would be low compared to countries like China, South Korea, UK, Germany, France where it is in the range of 35%-40%.

    Once again, WTF were previous Indian govts doing (or not doing as is the case)?? It's actually hard to believe how many fronts the Modi govt is working on and the steps that they are taking are so basic in some areas it is beyond shocking that it is only happening now and some actually think Rahul Gandhi would be better for the country than Modi, what kind of mental illness is this?

    I've been asking this to my dad since I was a little kid (India's internal water ways)...after seeing how massive canal systems/river improvement were done in the US, Europe and other places back when they were starting industrialisation.

    He could never give me a satisfactory answer....normally it would revolve around a vague "national security"....and he is one that has a real distaste for Congress and earlier Indian govts mind you.

    This attitude (among others that are even worse) is finally changing...

    What are you talking about ? we Rahul Baba don't tax people left and right , fill your bank accounts and tax from them, slow down the black market , gold market , heck even bank deposits...

    We are mild on people , earn a bit and allow same for the people.
    I guess with this methodology we sustained the rule for more than 50 years.
    Who needs development? By burdening the people ..

    We are going to let the honor of burdening the people to BJP for what like 10 years ...
    Then we will make a comeback and make a people s government for another 50 years ... Haha ha :LMAO:

    Record 47,350 kms. of PMGSY roads constructed during 2016-17

    New Delhi: The government built 47,350 km of rural roads under the flagship Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) in 2016-17, the most in seven years.

    That compares with the 36,449km of roads constructed in 2015-16 under PMGSY and 36,337km in 2014-15, the rural development ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

    During 2011-14, the average rate of construction of PMGSY roads was 73km per day, which increased to 100km per day in 2014-15 and 2015-16, the ministry of rural development said in a statement.

    In 2016-17, the pace of construction rose to a record 130km of rural roads per day, the highest average annual construction rate in the past seven years.

    Some 11,614 habitations were provided connectivity by the construction of PMGSY roads in 2016-17 or an average of 32 habitations were provided connectivity every day.

    To reduce the “carbon footprint” and environmental pollution, PMGSY is aggressively encouraging use of “Green Technologies” and non-conventional materials like waste plastic, cold mix, geo-textiles, fly-ash, iron and copper slag in rural roads.

    PMGSY was launched in 2000 by the previous National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government with the objective of providing all-weather road connectivity to unconnected rural habitations.
