Government to terminate three highways project worth Rs. 3,000 crore

Due to the poor performance of developers, the Union Road Transport and Highways Ministry has taken a decision to terminate three highway projects worth over Rs. 3,000 crore.


The projects are Rargaon-Jamshedpur (Rs. 1,650 crore) in Jharkhand, Rohtak-Jind (Rs. 410 crore) in Haryana and Haridwar-Dehradun (Rs. 1,021 crore) in Uttarakhand. While in the first two projects, which were started in December 2012 and October 2013 respectively, the NHAI had suspected diversion of funds, the concessionaire failed to bring in promised funds in the Uttarakhand project which had begun construction in November 2011. None of these projects had even completed half the work.

Extra info:
