The PM Gati Shakti - National Master Plan For Multi-Modal Connectivity is essentially a digital platform to bring 16 Ministries including Railways and Roadways together for integrated planning and coordinated implementation of infrastructure connectivity projects. The multi-modal connectivity is said to provide integrated and seamless connectivity for the movement of people, goods, and services from one mode of transport to another. It will facilitate the last mile connectivity of infrastructure and reduce travel time for people.
Earlier, the Indian government emphasised more on infrastructure development, as MoRTH minister Gadkari mentioned that India can hope of getting highways of American standards in the next three years and mentioned that 38km of roads are being constructed every day as compared to just two km each day in the past.
