India has one of the largest road networks of the world. The country's road network consists of Expressways, National Highways, State Highways, Major District Roads, Other District Roads, and Village Roads. The National Highways and State Highways together account for 195000-kilometer length. The National Highway comprises only 1.94% of the total length of roads but carries about 40% of the total traffic across the length and breadth of the country.

In the Tenth Plan - 2002-2007, a large chunk is allotted for the development of the transport system namely - National Highways, State Highways and major District Roads, and Rural Roads. Under this five-year plan the completion of the National Highways Development Program (NHDP) Phase-I and Phase-II as well as elimination of deficiencies in the existing National Highway Network is envisaged.
