SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY (PONDICHERRY): Mr. Vice-Chairman, Sir, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak on this small Bill which has been introduced by the hon. Minister in this august House. I was hearing with rapt attention the hon. Member Shri Chaturvediji. He has asked the Minister to withdraw this Bill and bring a new Bill. Sir, the country needs infrastructure. He has been making a tall claim that only the NDA Government developed the National Highways. I do not deny the fact that during NDA Government's regime, the road sector was given importance. But this does not mean that the other Governments have not done it. Sir, the work of taking roads to the villages was started during Panditji's period. When late Shrimati Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister, she allocated funds for rural roads through the Panchayat system and also allocated funds through the State Governments.

Then, late Shri Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister, the Prime Minister Gram Sadak Yojana, was initiated, and, thereafter, various Governments implemented it; NDA is also part of it. Now, I congratulate the hon. Minister for allocating more funds for building National highways and State highways connecting the district level roads and also rural roads. (Contd. by sk-2m)

SK/2M/2.10

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY (CONTD.): The rural roads have been given more importance because some State Governments, when they are not having sufficient funds, approach the World Bank or the Asian Development Bank directly for the purpose of connecting rural roads. This has been happening because the money provided by the Central Government for connecting rural roads was not sufficient. Especially, the tribal people, the Scheduled Caste people and the rural villages where they are living, connecting of the roads has become very important for various State Governments. I am glad that the roads, drinking water and communication system have been developed in the rural areas. Some more initiative has been taken by the UPA Government in the telecommunication sector, road sector, and power sector as well as in other basic infrastructure like primary education, health facilities and rural electricity.

Sir, this Bill covers not only rural roads but also the national highways. Under clause 2, the hon. Minister says, "In the Central Road Funds Act, 2000 (hereinafter referred to as the principal Act), in section 9, sub-section (1), after clause (b), the following clause shall be inserted, namely:- "take such measures as may be necessary to raise funds for development and maintenance of national highways and for the development of rural roads". So, he is talking about the national highways and also about the rural roads. But, in case of national highways, he says, 'for development and maintenance', and as far as rural roads are concerned, he says, 'for development of rural roads'. I would like to know from the hon. Minister what is the target that has been fixed by the Government of India for completing Golden Quadrangle, which has been initiated by the hon. Minister. We are fortunate that the hon. Minister was there in the NDA Government and he is also there in the present UPA Government. Therefore, there is some continuity.

SHRI RUDRA NARAYAN PANY: You will be more fortunate when he will be there in the next Government. He will remain permanently on that side.

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY: So, Sir, I would like to know how many kilometres have been completed so far. I would also like to know about the future course of action because there are some projects that have been announced by the hon. Minister. I would like to know from the Minister when those projects will be completed so that the country has an idea as to when the Golden Quadrangle will be completed. Apart from that, I would also like to know when the national highways projects, which have been initiated, would be completed.

Sir, the Government of India has sanctioned the project, and he has also announced this in this august House. We already have a national highway from Chennai to Kanyakumari. The hon. Minister has announced that the road connecting my State Puducherry with Tindivanam, which is about 40 kilometres away, will be covered under the national highway. He also said that tenders in this regard have been floated. I would like to know the status of that road between Tindivanam and Puducherry. After four-laning of road, connecting Chennai up to Madurai, has been done, accidents have been reduced. The credit for this goes to the hon. Minister and the UPA Government because maximum accidents have been avoided in that area because of the bifurcation that has been done on the road. I am grateful to the hon. Minister for that. As compared to previous years, the number accidents has been reduced throughout the country nowadays because of the better roads in various States. (Contd. by 2n)

-SK/YSR-MP/2.15/2N

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY (CONTD.): Sir, there is another road from Chennai which is connecting my State Puducherry. It is an east coast road. It is like Marine Drive. We can travel this distance of 155 km in one hour and forty-five minutes. The road is on the seaside. It was done by the hon. Minister. I am grateful to him for that. In that, there is one small hitch. There are lots of curves. Three or four curves are there. It is my duty to bring it to the hon. Minister's notice. The people, who travel on that road, feel that it should be straightened. It will not cost much to the hon. Minister. That area is prone to accidents, especially during night. The people who travel there, they suffer. Accidents do take place there. I want the hon. Minister to consider it.

Sir, as far as rural roads are concerned, it is very good that people are now saying that the Government of India is taking care of them and the Government of India is providing them roads in the rural areas.

Sir, now I come to maintenance of roads. You provide funds for the purpose of building roads there. States do not have sufficient funds. You are maintaining the National Highways. At least, for maintaining the rural roads, which connect district and State roads, a portion of the Fund can be given from the Cess amount, so that the States do not feel the burden. I want the hon. Minister to consider it.

Sir, the hon. Member, Mr. Chaturvedi, while speaking on it, was asking for enormous powers. He wants a blanket power for borrowing money for the purpose of developing roads. He asked which were the authorities or from which organisations you were going to borrow money. He asked all the details. Sir, I would like to submit here that this is for the purpose of enabling the Government to create road infrastructure in the country where we need sufficient fund. For this, the hon. Minister has come to this House. When we start opposing this, the basic idea...(Interruptions)..

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY: Sir, the hon. Member wants it in the Act itself. Other things, which he wants, will come in the rules like who will be the authority to negotiate with these people and who will be signing all these things. All these things will come in the rules. He knows it. He is a senior Member and also a former Minister. He knows this. In spite of it, he is putting these questions, because he is sitting on the other side. If he were sitting in this side, he would have definitely supported this Bill.

׻֟ ֟ : , ׾ פ ֲ ֋օ ִ , Consolidated Fund , ׮־

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY: Sir, I have been travelling in some of the States. I would like to bring to the notice of the hon. Minister specifically the road situation in Madhya Pradesh. The National Highway I was travelling from Indore to Ratlam was only 14o km long. It took me three-and-a-half hours to reach there. I will also tell the hon. Minister that it is the National Highway No.59. Whether it is ruled by the Congress or by the Opposition, I am not going into the issue. When you are providing infrastructure, important roads connecting important cities or areas of operation, when you are providing facilities, when you want to borrow money for the purpose of developing road infrastructure in the country, I would like to submit to the hon. Minister that with the kind of vehicles that are coming in the country today or are manufactured in the country and are moving on the road, your four-laning also will not help. (Contd. by VKK/2O)

-YSR/VKK/2O/2.20

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY (CONTD.): Now, we have to go in for six-laning and over-bridge. That is the situation because you can find that a father and three sons are having four cars in one house, especially in cities whether it is Delhi, whether it is Mumbai, whether it is Chennai or even for that matter, Kolkata. Kolkata is also developing now. In Hyderabad, Bangalore and in all these places, travel has become very difficult for the people in cars. On the one side, the Government has given permission for various multinational companies and Indian companies to manufacture cars, but, on the other side, we are not able to develop the infrastructure. We have to have a vision for 50 years, even beyond 50 years, so that we will be able to satisfy the needs of the people. Though this Bill is brought forward for a limited purpose, but, I would like to submit that the Government should work out a mechanism because the Government cannot raise funds on its own. Sir, in the past, we have seen that the cess that was levied on diesel oil, was diverted and not used for the purpose of developing the roads. After the Bill has been passed, it has become mandatory on the Government not to divert money and it should be utilised only for developing the roads. I am very glad about it. Earlier, Sir, the money was borrowed from that and it was not repaid. Earlier, the money was taken away from the cess. Now, this is not the situation. My colleague is a very senior Member, who was the former PWD Minister of Rajasthan, concerned with the development of roads in this country. The Government should get the powers to borrow. It is the inherent right of any Government to get the powers to borrow the money for the purpose of developing the roads. Until and unless that power is vested in the Government, it will be difficult for the Government to develop infrastructure for roads in this country. Let us not be very, very conservative; let us not be very pessimistic. Let us have a broad outlook. Let us see that for the purpose of developing road, you are also part of the system and BJP is also supporting the Government. With these words, Sir, I conclude. Thank you. (Ends)

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (WEST BENGAL): Thank you, Sir, for giving me an opportunity to take part in the discussion on the Central Road Fund (Amendment) Bill, 2006. Already two of my senior colleagues have raised their different points on the Bill. But, in the beginning, I would say one thing that success of any project does not depend upon the introduction of programme, but it depends upon the flow of funds and integrity. I firmly believe that this is a programme, this is a project, which is related to build up the infrastructure in the country. It is a very serious programme. It was introduced before the House in 2000. And now, the hon. Minister has come forward to amend only two sections of the earlier Act of 2000. In this perspective, I would like to express my views regarding two or three points on the Bill which is before us.

Sir, in the Central Road Fund Act, 2000, in the Statement of Objects and Reasons, it was said that it was levied by way of cess, excise and customs duty on petrol and high speed diesel oil for development and maintenance of National Highways, rural roads, State roads, improvement of safety at railway crossings, etc. (Contd. by 2p)

-VKK-TMV-LP/2P/2.25

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (CONTD.): This was stated broadly under section 9 of the Central Road Fund Act of 2000. At present, the Government has come before the House saying that there is a large scope for building rural roads, maintenance and other infrastructure related to roads. A lot of fund is required. In the present Bill, it is stated in the last sentence of the first paragraph of the Statement of Objects and Reasons and I quote:

"To bridge the funding gap it has been decided to borrow Rs.16,500 crores over a period of four years."

The Central Road Fund Act of 2000 did not provide for borrowing or raising funds. But the present Government is willing to amend section 9 of the Act in such a way and I quote:

"...to take such measures as may be necessary to raise funds for the development of rural roads..."

Sir, I am in favour of this Bill. But my point is this. The Central Road Fund Act, 2000 was passed for the development and maintenance of the National Highways, rural roads, State Highways, etc. Now fund is required for this purpose. They have now come with an amendment and we are told that it is for the development of the rural roads. But when fund is required for the maintenance of National Highways or building a new National Highway or building a new State Highway, what will happen? I am not against this Bill. But I feel that in section 9, which is being amended by adding a clause, the subject of maintenance of National Highways should also be incorporated. This is the point I would like to make. This is my observation, so far as this amendment is concerned.

Sir, it is a fact that infrastructure is important. There is no alternative to infrastructure for the development of the country. It is also a fact that roads are, in many ways, one of the major parts of infrastructure. I would like to ask: What is the condition of the National Highways in the country? I would like to give you only two or three examples. My friend, Mr. Narayanasamy, who spoke before me, also stated this. In my State, West Bengal, there is a big National Highway, that is, National Highway 44. In the last four years we were informed about the widening and strengthening of the National Highways. Leave aside widening and strengthening, even maintenance is very poor. Recently a serious and a very unfortunate incident involving a senior Minister of the UPA, who is in charge of the Ministry of External Affairs, Mr. Pranab Murkherjee, took place. He regularly visits that particular area. He was coming from my district, Murshidabad. He met with a grave accident. (Contd. by VK/2Q)

VK/2q/2.30

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (CONTD): It was fatal. Fortunately, he is alive. How did this accident take place? Actually, the particular stretch of the National Highway is very narrow. We came to know that there will be four-laning right from Barasat to Raiganj. The ADB is also involved here. But for the last four years, nothing has been done. Some trees have been cut at some places. Except that nothing has been done. What will happen to that? What will happen to the maintenance of National Highways? Widening and strengthening of National Highways, particularly NH-34 should be done promptly. It is not only my demand; it is the demand of my State also.

Then the National Highway-55 connects hilly area of Darjeeling. Darjeeling is famous for tourism and tea industry. But the condition of NH-55 is very pathetic. Another highway in my State, that is, National Highway-31 and 31A, is in a very bad shape. This National Highway connects North East and Sikkim. This highway passes over the River Teesta. The vehicles passing over the river fall into it. The condition of the National Highway in West Bengal is very serious and pathetic. I would request the hon. Minister to look into the situation.

My next point is about rural roads. I have been repeatedly saying that rural roads is a very important subject. If rural roads are proper, we can build up economic activity in that particular area. But what has been our experience of connecting rural areas with metalled roads? After one or two years, the road breaks down. There is nobody to look after them. If nobody is there to look after the roads, how can we expect positive results? We provide economic activity to a particular area, but after one or two years that particular area goes astray. It is just drainage of national property. Rural roads are very much required but these roads should also be maintained properly. Therefore, maintenance of roads should be taken up in a proper way.

I have come to know from the hon. Minister that rural roads and infrastructure are very much required throughout the country. We should do something meticulously for the rural poor who have been suffering since our Independence. If the Minister can do this, it will be better. With these words, I support the Bill. (Ends)

SHRI T.R. BAALU: Sir, first of all, I have to thank the hon. Members who have participated in this debate on C.R.F. (Amendment) Bill, 2007. These hon. Members include Shri Latil Kishore Chaturvediji, former PWD Minister of Rajasthan, Shri V. Naryanasamyji, Mr. Moinul Hassan, Prof. Bhadaryji and Mr. Rudra Narayan Pany. ...(Interruptions)... Shri Pany spoke on many subjects except the particular issue which we are debating. At the same time, first I would like to answer his point about NH-215. Day before yesterday, the hon. Chief Minister of Orissa met me and he mentioned some concern about NH-215 that it is not being maintained properly. It is a true story. Only after the meeting with the Chief Minister I came to understand that proper funding was not available to the Orissa Government. Immediately I have ordered my officers to release Rs.10 crores as far as NH-215 is concerned. It was not being done wantonly. There was some communication gap between the Government Departments and the National Highways Authority of India. ...(Interruptions)... During such times when transfer takes place from Government to the National Highway Authority of India, there is some stopgap arrangement. But those stopgap arrangements were not taken up properly. There were some loose ends. But after identifying the problem, immediately, I have ordered to transfer about Rs.10 crores so that the maintenance work is taken up immediately. As far as Ranchi -Vijayawada is concerned, three States are involved. Moreover, there are National Highways, State roads, rural roads and so many other roads which are involved in it. If I am not wrong approximately it is about 1800 to 1900 kms long. For this, we have to have a separate package. And here separate package means that I have to interact with the State Governments and the officers of the Central Government and also the Planning Commission. For that matter I interacted with the Chief Minister of Orissa and we will be taking up the project separately. As of now we do not have any particular scheme to deal with this large stretch because we have already processed almost all the schemes and we have to complete by 2011-12. (Contd by 2w/sss)

SHRI T. R. BAALU (CONTD.): NHDP I and II, which was envisaged during the NDA period by the great Vajpayeeji, is almost nearing completion. The third phase, which was identified by Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, the UPA Government, has been taken up at various places and not only in Bihar. Mr. Bhandary was very much worried. The first State, which I visited, was Bihar only. I went near Nepal. I know the problems of that particular area wherein without any proper embankments roads were constructed. Not only that, there was no campfire, there were no levels even. When I enquired the PWD officers and highway officials, they were not maintaining the contour map even. That is why I have advised. We went by morning, four O' clock. I reached the site by 12 O' clock or 1 O' clock. We conducted the conference with all officials under a tamarind tree. I think, Mr. Bhandari maybe knowing things and we have met the Members of Parliament twice. We know what is what. I have visited almost all the States. Wherever I go and meet the Chief Ministers, we interact with our officers along with the Members of Parliament of that particular State. We understood their problem. We have identified the stretches wherein we have to immediately do some maintenance or go for totally new construction of roads. I can answer all my friends but it will take a lot of time. It is already 3 O' clock. I want to quicken and wind up my speech. As far as the National Highway Development Projects are concerned, you know Phase I and Phase II, the Golden Quadrilateral, North-South-East-West corridor. NHDP III is about 12,109 kms of four lane roads in various States under BOT schemes and NHDP-IV two laning of the paved shoulders of 20,000 kilometres and NHDP-V is of 6500 kms under DFO basis, and NHDP-VI, the new Expressway throughout the country about 1000 kms have been taken up and NHDP-7, ring roads, bye-pass road, fly-overs and so on. Sir, for construction of these roads, funds have already been identified and how to leverage is already established under NRF Act. But for the rural roads it is missing. The present amendment has only an enabling provision to get loan from NABARD or from somewhere. It is very, very simple. But at the same time, all my friends have elaborately gone into National Highways. Under Bharat Nirman there are 6 components. Out of six components one component is all-weather roads and, Sir, 1.46 lakh kms of new link roads for habitation, hitherto not connected. There may be a road for 1000 people in plains and a road for 500 people in the hilly areas. These habitations will have to be connected. To give connectivity, to give communication to the particular area, we want to establish rural roads. Not only that, we want to upgrade rural roads to the tune of 1.94 lakh kms. As far as Rajasthan is concerned, former Minister was mentioning about 11,460 kms of link roads to the rural habitations and 13075 kms for upgradation. Where can I go for funding? How could we fund it, unless and otherwise, we amend it. What is the funding pattern as far as this particular scheme is concerned? Total fund requirement is 48,000 crores. Out of cess, I can get only 16,000 crores; under externally aided projects, Rs. 9000 crores.
