Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) was launched on 25th December 2000 to improve rural connectivity across India. However, there are various challenges in construction delays, cost overruns, and under-utilization of funds. MSC’s advisory support on smart solutions seeks to offer better ways and means to improve scheme delivery and capacity on the ground, particularly in the context of physical and financial management of the project. MSC supports the National Rural Infrastructure Development Agency (NRIDA), which is responsible for managing and monitoring the flagship program to implement a new range of emerging IT solutions. The project intended to create transparency across the system by enabling key decision-makers to have better observability of data from the sites, traceability of fund flow, and keep a tab on the overall scheme performance.
