Government Allocates Rs. 180 Billion to NHA for FY25 PSDP, 16% Increase from Previous Year

The government has allocated Rs. 180.284 billion for the National Highway Authority (NHA) in the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) for the fiscal year 2024-25

This allocation is for 104 projects and represents a 16% increase compared to the previous fiscal year.

The Annual Plan Coordination Committee (APCC) proposed this budget to the National Economic Council (NEC), with Rs. 167.800 billion allocated for 90 ongoing projects and Rs. 12.484 billion for 14 new projects.

In the PSDP for 2023-24, Rs. 156 billion was allocated for NHA, but only Rs. 93.9 billion was authorized by the Planning Commission until April 2024. NHA’s expenditure during July-April 2023-24 was Rs. 57.708 billion.

Initially, the government had provisionally allocated Rs. 92 billion to NHA under the PSDP for 2024-25. However, NHA requested Rs. 628 billion for around 100 ongoing and new projects. NHA did not submit a summary to the APCC due to the narrow allocation, and as a result, its case was not considered in the committee meeting, which proposed Rs. 1.22 trillion for the PSDP for the next budget.

NHA was anticipating around Rs. 200 billion in the PSDP for 2024-25, but the APCC proposed Rs. 180.284 billion.
