Complete all pending projects by Twenty22

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set a five-year deadline for completing all pending projects. He told all secretaries at Centre and chief secretaries in states that “yesteryears' speed of implementation won't be acceptable“. PM made these remarks while chairing Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation-PRAGATI, a monthly web-based interaction with bureaucrats, when the decades' old Howrah-Amta-Champadanga new broad gauge line project came up for review. The railway project was sanctioned in 1974-75, but land acquisition started only in 2009. “PM said the country will not forgive all of us for such delays and exorbitant increase in project cost. He said we will be celebrating 75 years of India's independence in 2022. All departments must strive to ensure all pending projects are completed by then,“ a source said.

Modi also asked railways to follow “grand challenge mode“ for undertaking railway projects something that road transport ministry will start. Under this model, central agencies take up work on priority in states which offer land quickly .“The PM urged all chief secretaries to work expeditiously towards ensuring that all traders register under the GST regime, and this task is completed before August 15,“ a statement issued by PMO said.
