India is about to breach the $2 trillion GDP mark, as it works its way through the lower end of the middle-income-nation spectrum.

The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to carry out four-laning of the Parwanoo-Shimla section of the NH-22 under a single project, instead of two separate projects as planned earlier.

The decision was taken after work on the four-laning of Parwanoo-Solan was delayed due to redesigning of the project to change the alignment of some portions to avoid large-scale demolition of commercial and residential structures along the road.
