Answering a question in Parliament today, India's Minister of Defense Manohar Parrikar said "the Government has revised the completion schedule of 39 Indo-China border roads."
They include: "5 roads in 2016, eight roads in 2017, 12 roads in 2018, eight roads in 2019 and six roads to be completed by 2020."
India has identified 73 strategic Indo-China border roads, out of which 22 roads with a combined length of 707.74 km have been completed, albeit with a delay of more than 4 years.
Issues related to land acquisition, forest /wildlife clearance, the allotment of quarries etc. are delaying the projects. Apart from resolving regulatory issues, the government has also allowed Border Road Organization to outsource in order to augment the capacity of the organization.
