In a significant development in Mumbai, Maharashtra has taken decisive steps to expedite Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious infrastructure project, the “PM GatiShakti National Master Plan (NMP).” This move comes as part of Maharashtra’s commitment to advancing the extensive infrastructure development envisioned by the Prime Minister. Among the six additional projects greenlit in September under the GatiShakti plan, a notable one is a green-field road initiative spanning Gujarat and Maharashtra, encompassing Navsari, Nashik, and Ahmednagar districts.
Taking proactive measures, the Maharashtra government has mobilized a team of highly competent and skilled officers in their dedicated War Room. This team is working in close coordination with central officials and experts to ensure the timely and efficient completion of the Maharashtra segment of the project. Furthermore, the collaboration extends beyond state borders, as Maharashtra officials are actively engaged in seamless coordination with their counterparts in Gujarat.
An official from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) revealed that the agency has already taken a pivotal step by awarding a contract for the preparation of a detailed report for the green-field stretch between Surat and Ahmednagar via Nashik. This proactive approach, involving collaboration at both the state and central levels, underscores the commitment of Maharashtra to contribute effectively to the successful execution of the GatiShakti National Master Plan. The accelerated progress of this project not only reflects Maharashtra’s dedication to infrastructure development but also signifies a harmonized effort to enhance connectivity and promote economic growth in the region.
