Green Technology in PMGSY

 

     In order to encourage locally available materials and use of green technologies for construction of road under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), guidelines were issued by the Ministry, wherein the State Governments are required to propose minimum 15% of total length of annual proposals under New technologies such as Cement stabilization, Lime stabilization, Cold mix, Waste plastics, Cell filled concrete, Paneled cement concrete pavement, Fly ash etc. Further, Ministry of Rural Development specifications have also been relaxed in respect of grading of materials for Granular Sub Base layer in order to encourage the usage of locally available/naturally occurring material/marginal materials.

     The Ministry has so far sanctioned 35,922 Km length of roads using New Technologies and 22,983.96 Km have been completed as per details given in Annexure.

    The State of Andhra Pradesh had submitted proposal for converting 37 roads of 163.49 Km sanctioned under Road Connectivity Project for Left Wing Extremism Affected Areas with conventional method of construction to New Technology. The same has been approved and communicated to the State. There is no other proposal of the State on New Technology pending with the Government at present.

    This information was given by the Minister of State for Rural Development, Shri Ram Kripal Yadav in Rajya Sabha today.
