Land being among the most precious of natural resources available, optimum utilization of land shall play a critical role in integrated development of infrastructure. One of the ways to effect such optimum utilization is leveraging land within National Highway (NH) Right of Way (ROW) for laying utility services. This may be achieved through granting permissions for laying utility services along and /or across the ROW. However, environment and safety of the road users are the prime factors in deciding permission for services.
