The Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has firmed up Rs 14,000 crore state support programme for strengthening road safety in India.

The programme will be funded by the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). It will be driven by a strict incentive-based structure for states delivering on road safety aspects, including reduction in fatalities. MoRTH will fund half of the Rs 14,000 crore programme while the World Bank and ADB will equally contribute the remaining half.

To incentivise states, a delivery matrix will be developed that will comprise mandatory as well as optional performance parameters. States' performance will be assessed and grant amount will be disbursed accordingly. Indicators will be focused around safe road infrastructure, safe vehicle standards, driver behaviour, road safety advocacy and enforcement of relevant laws.

An apex monitoring body chaired by roads secretary will be constituted, with representatives from the ministries of home, health and family welfare, housing and urban affairs, heavy industries, and human resource development. The programme is spread over four years, and MoRTH has set a target of reducing fatalities by 30 percent starting from 7.5 percent in the first year, 15 percent in the second, 22.5 percent in the third and 30 percent in the fourth year.
