NHAI to collaborate with over 200 premier institutes to leverage local expertise

The National Highways Authority of India(NHAI) has received overwhelming response from many reputed Institutes for its initiative of collaborating with Premier Institutes to leverage local expertise.

According to NHAI, as many as 18 IITs , 26 NITs and 190 other reputed Engineering colleges have agreed to collaborate with NHAI. Out of which, about 200 Institutes have already signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

NHAI has said that it had introduced a unique initiative to associate with reputed Technical Institutes and Engineering colleges to adopt nearby stretches of National Highways, on voluntary basis under Institution Social Responsibility. It said, over 300 Institutes are expected to collaborate to adopt NH stretches.

NHAI envisions to provide a world class National Highway network to meet the Nation’s requirements by building a large number of mega highway projects in a cost-effective manner.

Adoption of NH stretch by an Institute would facilitate stakeholder engagement and help to mitigate the routine local problems such as traffic hindrance, congestion, and immediate identification of accident-prone sites.
