The Union Cabinet has approved the PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan, aimed at bringing down the logistics cost in the country by integrating the policymaking in the infrastructure space and bringing all stakeholders in India's infrastructure development together.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on October 13 launched the PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan for multi-modal connectivity to expedite and bring infrastructure development on a common path.

The Rs 100 lakh-crore Gati Shakti plan envisages a centralised portal comprising all existing and planned infrastructure initiatives of as many as 16 central ministries and departments for integrated planning and coordinated implementation of infra connectivity projects.

The plan was first announced at the Red Fort on August 15 on the occasion of the 75th Independence Day. The plan seeks to end bureaucratic entanglements and break inter-ministerial silos with respect to infrastructure projects.
