 CHALLENGES OF PRADHAN MANTRI GRAM SADAK YOJANA

Lack of funds. 

As per ministry of rural development maintenance of roads will cost around ₹75,000-₹80,000 crore for 5 years and the period starts from 2020-21. States are supposed to invest ₹11,500 crore, and this investment will increase to ₹19,000 crore by 2024-25. The central government’s amount is under stress so it can’t be predicted till when  this amount will be transferred to the state government. 

 It was mentioned in a Report submitted on Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana in 2017 by the Standing Committee of Rural Development  that frequent transfer affects the effectiveness of development. It was also monitored that project is lagging behind due to:

•inadequate execution and contracting capacity, and

•unavailability of land and forest clearances.
