Gati Shakti – National Master Plan: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 15 announced the Gati Shakti scheme from the Red Fort wall. It then started on Wednesday, October 13th. Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches ‘PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan’. Under this scheme, infrastructure development projects will be expedited. Under the Rs 100 lakh crore scheme, 16 ministries, including railways and roads, will be connected to digital medium.

What is Gati Shakti National Master Plan?

Under this scheme, infrastructure projects of various Ministries and State Governments like Bharat Mala, Sagarmala, Inland Waterways, Dry Lands, Ports, Flying will be included in the construction and design of any scheme. The PM Gati Shakti scheme will reduce the cost of projects and maintenance costs, while creating new employment opportunities. It is a digital platform connecting 16 ministries, including rail and road, which will accelerate the development of infrastructure projects worth about Rs 100 lakh crore.

No project will get entangled in the file.

It is customary in the country that if a road is built, after a few days the road is dug for laying cables. Similarly, even after spending hundreds of crores of rupees, many projects are stalled due to non-receipt of clearance from the Ministry of Forests and Environment. The PM Gati Shakti Yojana will help solve such problems. For this, a group of 16 ministries has been formed which are mainly related to infrastructure. These include the Ministries of Railways, Road Transport, Ships, IT, Textiles, Petroleum, Energy, Aviation. Ongoing projects of these Ministries or projects completed by 2024-25 will be kept under ‘Gati Shakti Yojana’.
