The central government has identified 73 roads for development along the International Border with China, informed Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar in Rajya Sabha today.

“Of these 73 Indo-China Border Roads (ICBRs), 61 roads of total length 3410 km have been entrusted to Border Roads Organisation (BRO),” the defence minister said, and added, “Out of 61 ICBRs with BRO, 19 roads of length 625 Km have already been completed.”

The connectivity has been achieved on 24 roads and the work is under progress on 16 roads, while works on two roads are yet to commence. Out of the remaining 42 ICBRs, the target set for completion for 40 ICBRs is 2018 and for 2 roads the completion is expected to go beyond 2018, Parrikar said.

He also said that certain norms have been relaxed for projects concerning national defence and security or involving other strategic considerations.
