New Delhi: The implementation of PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan has the potential to save over Rs 10 lakh crore yearly by increasing logistics efficiency, Union Minister for Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal said Thursday.

He said PM GatiShakti is increasingly being used in the social sector for better infrastructure development, thereby, taking fruits of technology to every citizen of the country and improving ease of life for the common man.

PM GatiShakti would define India's future in the years to come, Goyal said while addressing  National Workshop on PM GatiShakti on the first anniversary of the rollout of the plan.

'The National Master Plan will transform the way we work and the outcomes of our work and will drive economic development,' Goyal said.

The Minister expressed confidence that PM GatiShakti would help bring in balanced, inclusive, equitable development in the country by helping remote areas, especially those in the North East undertake integrated infrastructure planning and close development gaps.

Referring to the Prime Minister’s Development Initiative for North East Region (PM-DevINE) scheme launched on October 12, he said by dovetailing PM GatiShakti into the scheme would help utilize resources much more efficiently.

The Minister also launched the Logistics Ease Across Different States (LEADS) 2022 survey report. The LEADS is an indigenous data-driven index to assess logistics infrastructure, services, and human resources across all 36 States and UTs.
