Especially in the case of the Delhi-Mumbai Express. Our intention is to complete it in three years.

Gadkari said an electric expressway route is being planned on the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway. Land acquisition work has been completed for this one lakh crore rupees project. He said that he will go to Sweden next month to see the electronic highways. He invited companies to invest in converting highways into electric highways.

Gadkari said that the Reserve Bank has assured that it will allow us to give infrastructure loans for 30 years. In such a situation, if a project loanable by a bank is 30 years, then the loan amount will increase over a period of 13 to 18 years.

Get to know the Electric Highway…Trucks and buses will run on electricity in 21st century India. The vehicle will run on electric fuel only. This will reduce the cost (logistics cost). Therefore, on the lines of Germany, Sweden and California, etc., there is also a plan to turn the country into an electric highway.

Like the subway, trucks or buses will also run on the electrical cable above. Let us tell you that before, Germany has successfully tested the electric highway to crack down on rising pollution. Under which electric cables were laid on the road, which will power hybrid trucks. Because hybrid trucks will be able to transport goods from one city to another without pollution.

Nitin Gadkari says there will be a two-year status quo period after the project is completed. An escrow account will be opened after toll collection begins after three years. A certain amount will be deposited in this escrow account. The Minister reported that the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has 480 of these projects secured by bank loans.

SBI ready to give loan

Like the State Bank of India (SBI), five other banks are ready to lend. He said that the annual income of NHAI during the current fiscal year will be Rs 40,000 crore and in the next few years it will reach Rs 1 lakh.
