Gati Shakti IT interface to store infrastructure projects data

5 days ago 12

NEW DELHI: The IT interface for Gati Shakti Master Plan will capture all details of existing and upcoming projects and will also highlight the gaps for last mile or missing connectivities, sources said.
Officials said a detailed presentation on the IT interface and data-capturing was made before officials and representatives from private sector on Wednesday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the scheme. TOI has learnt that implementation of the scheme will also be monitored at three levels, including at the level of an apex panel headed by cabinet secretary.
“One of the key focus areas will be monitoring of the progress and resolving issues as there is a strict timeline for the plan’s execution. Currently, the biggest challenge is to bridge the gap and complete the missing link between different infrastructure projects. The data and details fed by all agencies in the system will be crucial. There is also a focus to bring states on board,” said an official.
As the multi-modal connectivity plan will focus on shifting from “disjointed planning” to “integrated planning” of centrally-sponsored infrastructure projects, officials don’t rule out the government also right-sizing plans to meet the requirement. Though the government hasn’t specified the size of the programme in financial terms, it will subsume the Rs 110 lakh crore National Infrastructure Pipeline, which was launched by the PM in 2019.
