The Central Public Works Department (CPWD) has been appointed as the executing agency for upgradation.

Gap Analysis Committee has been constituted, and preliminary analyses by GMCs for Jagdalpur and Bilaspur have been reviewed on January 12, 2017, and they have been asked to submit revised analysis and estimate in consultation with the executing agency, said Kulaste.

Kulaste also informed the house that timelines for start and completion of the upgradation work depend upon various factors, including approval of authorities concerned, approval of Detailed Project Report and issue of notification of award.

"Upgradation of GMCs under Phase-IV of PMSSY is to be completed by December 31, 2018, as approved by Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on Aug 3, 2016," he added.
