Govt to work on rural transport

The Centre plans a comprehensive rural transport system to complement two decades of building a web of roads in the countryside through an ambitious scheme, the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna (PMGSY). The new scheme is crafted to improve and regulate transportation facilities in villages, and also enhance job opportunities for the rural youth. It includes a first-time plan to introduce viability gap funding (VGF) or the government sharing a part of the cost for public vehicles. The new scheme will address unsafe, poorly regulated, informal and unorganised rural transport services.
