Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways has informed Lok Sabha about the Char Dham Programme.
Char Dham Programme:
Features of the programme:
Engineering procurement and construction (EPC) is the system of private sector participation aimed at overcoming the shortcomings of PPP model.
Under EPC model the contractor is legally responsible to complete the project under some fixed predetermined timeline and may also involve scope for penalty in case of time overrun. But the entire cost is borne by the government.
In EPC all the clearances, land acquisition and regulatory norms have to be completed by the government itself and the private players do not have to get itself involved in these time taking procedures.
The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) was formed in 1960 to secure India’s borders and develop infrastructure in remote areas of the north and north-east states of the country.
It functions under the control of the Ministry of Defence since 2015.
BRO executes road construction and maintenance works along the northern and western frontiers primarily to meet the strategic requirements of the army and is responsible for maintenance of over 53,000 km of roads.
