Indian road network, which is the second largest in the world have total road length of 48.7 lakh Km in 2014-15. Road transport is an important infrastructure for an economy, especially for an emerging economy like India. Road and highway development works as a multiplier effect on the economy, as this sector influences the development of a country in many aspects. With the development of connectivity between cities, towns and villages in the country, the rural and urban areas come closer.
Since many years, Indian government has continuously focused and invested in the development of road infrastructure in the country. And in this respect, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway was established in 2009 by dividing Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highway into two independent ministries.
Total road network is divided into different categories, consisting of National Highways, expressways, state highways, OPWD roads, urban road, and rural roads. The Central Government is responsible for the construction and development of national highways. State highways and major district roads comes under the custodianship of State Government. Other district roads and rural roads is the responsibility of Local Government.
Now the private public partnership model is increasingly adopted for road development by the government. Some of the models in operation are: BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer), EPC (Engineering, Procurement and construction), Toll Collection, OMT (Operate, Maintain and Transfer) and HAM (Hybrid Annuity Model).
The main driving forces of this sector are investment prospect, financial support by government, rising road projects in 2016, increasing sales of mid and heavy commercial vehicles, favorable policy initiatives by the government and advanced toll collection policy. While there are some challenges which Indian roads and highway market has to face such as slow dispute resolution and delayed land acquisition.
