BBMP INDEX FOR ROADS NEWS BBMP has drawn out a Index to highlight the roads that need repair.


  • Indication of how bad the roads
  • Colour-coding based on the extent of damage and present condition
  • 21-km roads that are not motorable fall under the ‘Red’ category and require immediate repairs
  • The yellow and green roads are in motorable condition with the immediate requirement of bitumen mix coat due to worn-out surface like potholes
  • Over 50 per cent of the roads in various parts of the city are not maintained by the BBMP as they are either undergoing development or the works have been recently completed and they are maintained by the contractor as per the Defect Liability Period (DLP) clause


The city roads which are meant for through traffic usually on a continuous route are called ARTERIAL STREETS.

The city roads which provided lower level of travel mobility than arterial streets, are called SUB-ARTERIAL STREETS.

The DEFECTS LIABILITY PERIOD (or ‘DLP’) is a fixed period of time, starting from the date of practical completion, during which the contractor has an express contractual right to return to the site to rectify defects.
