The 43rd edition of PRAGATI was held on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. It was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During the meeting, eight projects related to water supply, irrigation, national highways, connectivity, rail and metro rail connectivity were reviewed. The cumulative cost of these projects amounted to approximately Rs. 31,000 crore.
PRAGATI is a platform for intergovernmental coordination and project monitoring. It was launched by the Government of India in 2015. PRAGATI meetings are held on a regular basis, and they are attended by senior officials from the central government and state governments.
The 43rd edition of PRAGATI is significant because it comes at a time when the Indian economy is facing a number of challenges. The government is hoping that the projects that were reviewed during the meeting will help to boost the economy and create jobs.
