Both have the foundation stone laid by PM Modi. These projects are anticipated to bring in approximately 110 crore in annual revenue for Himachal Pradesh.
In Himachal Pradesh, PM Modi will also introduce the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana-III. Additionally, he will speak at two open forums in Chamba and Una.
For this phase, the Center has approved more than 420 crore for the improvement of 440 km of roads in 15 border and remote blocks of the state.
PM Narendra Modi will be among the civilians of Himachal Pradesh today, 13th October. He said that he is looking forward to the programmes in Una & Chamba.
There will be many development works inaugurated which are aimed at further increasing the pace of progress in the state.
