    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.
