Bharatmala Pariyojana
In India, after Independence, the government formed a committee to find how the remote area and cities can be connected with each other by roads. The committee recommended plans of funds and research programs to develop roads for all-weather use.

The roads were initially divided into 4 parts such as:

>Natioanl Highways
>State Highways
>Major District Roads
>Village Roads
After many years reforms were made and Expressways were also added to the list and faster construction was assured.
