India has one of the largest road networks in the world, spanning a total of 5.5 million kilometres (kms). Production of commercial vehicles increased to 894,551 in 2017-18 from 567,000 in 2009-10 at a CAGR of 5.87 per cent.

The private sector has emerged as a key player in the development of road infrastructure in India. Increased industrial activities, along with increasing number of two and four wheelers have supported the growth in the road transport infrastructure projects. The government’s policy to increase private sector participation has proved to be a boon for the infrastructure industry with a large number of private players entering the business through the public-private partnership (PPP) model.

The planned outlay under the Union Budget 2018-19 for the road sector is Rs 1.21 lakh crore (US$ 18.69 billion). Moreover, Rs 71,000 crore (US$ 10.97 billion) have been allocated specifically for the development for the national highways in the country.

With the Government permitting 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in the road sector, several foreign companies have formed partnerships with Indian players to capitalise on the sector's growth. MAIF 2 became the first largest foreign investment in Indian roads sector under TOT mode worth Rs 9,681.5 crore (US$ 1.50 billion). In April 2018, the Government of India signed a US$ 210 million deal with World Bank to improve rural roads at a stretch of 10,510 km in Madhya Pradesh under the Gram Sadak Yojana programme. In May 2018, the Government of India signed US$ 500 million loan agreement with World Bank to provide additional funding for construction of 7,000 km climate resilient roads out of which 3,500 km will be built using green technologies under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna (PMGDY). 

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has fixed a target for construction of 10,000 km national highways in FY19.
