  • The oversight committee will receive all the support from the Ministry of Defence, Uttarakhand Government, Ministry of Road Transport and all the district magistrates.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

  • Strategic 900-km-long
  • In Uttarakhand
  • Aim at providing all weather-connectivity to four holy towns in Uttarakhand- Gangotri, Yamunotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath
  • Envisaged back in 2016
  • PM described the project as a tribute to those who lost their lives in flash floods in Uttarakhand
  • Even though Char Dham road project was primarily conceived to facilitate tourism and Char dham yatras, it always had a strategic angle as the highways will facilitate the seamless movement of troops to the areas that are closer to the China border.
