Panel concerned on roads

The responsibility of the maintenance of roads constructed under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), once their five-year contractual period is over, is an issue which has "concerned" a parliamentary committee. The parliamentary standing committee on rural development which has submitted its report on demand for grants(2008-09) during the on going Budget Session in Lok Sabha, has noted that all roads constructed under PMGSY are covered by five-year maintenance contracts.
