Centre clears Rs 90 crore for road projects in Arunachal
Itanagar: The Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DONER) has cleared a total of about Rs 90 crore this fiscal for various road projects in Arunachal Pradesh.
This would be part of the total Rs 120.41 crore for 17 road projects for which state shares were cleared and utilisation certificates submitted to the ministry.
This was stated by DONER Secretary R Vijay Kumar, Joint Secretary A M Singh and NEC Joint Secretary VB Pathak during a discussion on various road projects with state PWD Minister Gojen Gadi in New Delhi yesterday.
With hardly six working months in the state and one month gone, delay in release of funds is likely to escalate the project costs and would require re-submission of the projects, Gadi said to justify his plea, official sources said here today.
