Low Cost Roads Connecting Villages:
Problem of Village Connectivity
It is estimated that nearly 45 per cent of India's villages are not connected by an all-weather road. Thus, the people living in these villages are virtually cut off from the country's mainstream and lack schools, medical facilities, electricity and drinking water. Provision of an all-weather road to each village is thus an important task to be fulfilled soon. Since the task is enormous, it is necessary to explore low-cost solutions.
