The agencies working in the infrastructure sector, such as roads and railways, should map their projects with the water bodies being developed under Amrit Sarovar, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the 40th edition of PRAGATI, the ICT based platform for pro-active governance and timely implementation. 

Modi said that this would be a win-win situation as the material dugout for the Amrit Sarovar can be utilised for civil works by the agencies.

The Prime Minister said that states may also formulate state-level GatiShakti Master Plan on the lines of PM GatiShakti National Master Plan and constitute state-level units for this purpose. This can go a long way in better planning, identifying and addressing key issues and ensuring better coordination for timely execution of projects.

According to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), in the meeting, nine agenda items were taken for review including eight projects and one programme. 

Among the eight projects, two projects each were from the Ministry of Railways, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas along with one project each from the Ministry of Power and Department of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation.

These eight projects have a cumulative cost of over Rs 59,900 crore, concerning the 14 states viz Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Jharkhand, PMO said.
