Status of Core Network of Bihar 1.Inconsistencies noticed in the tentative Core Network sent by the Govt. of Bihar. 2.The State requested for permission for ground verification to finalize and freeze the Core Network Data. 3.Sanction of Projects were made based on the tentative Core Network and certification of eligibility by the State/ Nominated Executing Agencies(NEAs). 4.The habitation details of the Core Network have been analyzed in the presence of officers of RWD from all the districts and shortcomings found. 5.Verification of habitations of the roads sanctioned to the NEAs (CPWD, IRCON, NBCC, NPCC and NHPC), involved on request of the State for implementation, is under process. 6.Meeting at the level of SRD scheduled for 21 st July 2011.
20 Quality Assurance –Mechanism A Three Tier Quality Assurance Mechanism institutionalized. First Tier is in-house quality control, Second (SQMs) and Third Tiers (NQMs) are independent monitoring. Sustainable Quality achieved through effective interventions. – Quality Control at PIU linked to payment to contractors and stage passing concept introduced. – Independent monitoring at State level through structured inspections. Outsourcing permitted. – Independent monitoring of quality at National level further refined through close monitoring of action taken and evaluation of performance of NQMs. – The Cost of works having non-rectifiable defects to be treated as infructuous.

Special Dispensation Accorded to LWE Affected Areas/IAP Districts Included in the following four categories of proposals being considered for clearance under PMGSY (As per Advisory issued on 12 th June 2009) –Residual new connectivity coverage envisaged under Phase – I of Bharat Nirman. –Projects to be taken up with the assistance of WB/ADB – New habitation connectivity in identified LWE affected (now enlarged to 60 LWE affected/IAP) districts –Special road connectivity packages announced for the border areas
Special Dispensation Accorded to LWE Affected Areas/IAP Districts Keeping in view of demands for concerned States, about a year back for upto 50 m length entire funds were being released from the Ministry (against 25 m length earlier). The limit has been increased to 75 meters. It is not that bridges longer than 75 m are not covered, but cost on pro-rata basis is to be borne by the States. Causeways of all lengths are funded by GOI. Qualification criteria relaxed for Contractors. The minimum tender package has been reduced to Rs. 50 lakh. A sum of Rs. 2,000 crore was released to LWE/IAP Districts.
Recommendations on various issues related to the North East States S. N ItemRecommendations Submitted 1 Coverage of remaining Bharat Nirman Works All remaining eligible proposals be sent by the States immediately. 2 Coverage of missed out bridges on roads already sanctioned under PMGSY All remaining eligible proposals be sent by the States immediately. 3Sanctions of Stage-II works for such PMGSY roads for which Stage –I has already been sanctioned. All remaining eligible proposals be sent by the States immediately.
Recommendations on various issues related to the North East States- contd. 4Inclusion or otherwise of CC drain width and Parapet Wall Width in the roadway width. (i)The roadway width should be exclusive of parapet and side drains. (ii)Minimum roadway width should be 6 meters. (iii)The width may be suitably increased on the request of SRRDA as per DPRs at curves, junctions etc. and road stretches facing heavy snowfall or land slides. (iv) Reputed institute be awarded an R&D study to suggest technological solutions especially using local material to control landslides in hilly areas. Convergence with MGNREGA to check landslides be also evolved through this study.
Recommendations on various issues related to the North East States- contd. 5 Higher costs due to transportation of Cement, Bitumen, Steel etc. and longer leads. To start with a pre-bid conference with Cement Manufacturers should be convened either at Delhi or Kolkata in which States may project their annual requirement of cement covering all schemes run by the Ministry of Rural Development. 6Relaxation of the current norm of population of 250 persons and above in respect of Hill States (i)The existing procedure of Hill States for connectivity to habitations of population 250 and above in 2001 and relaxations of path distance of 1.5km to form a cluster of 250+ as well as relaxation of 10 km path distance in International Border blocks be continued. (ii)To provide connectivity to the habitations of less than 250 population in 2001 even after availing the aforesaid relaxations; existing convergence provision in MGNREGA may be availed of by the States.
Recommendations on various issues related to the North East States - contd. 7 Relaxation of norms of 100% funding by GoI for bridges of span up to 50 m by covering bridges of span up to 150 m under 100% GoI funding Number of bridges of span: (i)above 50 meters upto 60 meters and (ii)above 60 meters be assessed by the States with crude estimates of bridge wise cost on PMGSY roads not yet cleared by the Department. 8GoI funding towards maintenance to partially cover enormous maintenance costs due to difficult terrain XIII Finance Commission funds be used to supplement State funds.
Recommendations on various issues related to the North East States- contd. 9 Financial assistance from GoI for GIS applications and digitization of Core Network GIS interface is essential for Core Network and the necessary arrangement be evolved in consultation with States. Department of Science & Technology, Government of India be also approached. 10Switchover to e-tendering in all NE States All remaining States should switch over to e-tendering by 31 st December, 2011.
