ITANAGAR: The Centre has enhanced the allocation of fund to Arunachal Pradesh under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) for the financial year 2016-17.

The union Ministry of Rural Development has enhanced the PMGSY allocation to Rs 468 crore including state matching share of Rs 47 crore for the current fiscal, an official communique said here today.

Last year, the total fund available for the scheme was Rs 275 crore and enhancement of additional Rs 100 crores was given during March 2016.
