State Highways:

These are trunk or arterial roads of a state connecting the National Highways of adjacent states and linking the district headquarters and important cities within the state.

These are roads traversing within a district, serving areas of production and markets, connecting these with National and State Highways. They are further divided into two classes as:

The Other District Roads (ODR) and Village Roads (VR) are often grouped together and termed as 'Rural Roads'.
