Abstract: 

World Bank study estimate that has 15% of Agricultural of Produce is lost between the farm gate and the consumer because of poor roads and inappropriate storage facilities alone, adversely influencing the income of farmers. Poor rural road infrastructure limits the ability of the traders to travel to and communicate with remote farming areas, limiting market access from these areas and eliminating competition for their produce. the investment of 1.2 billion by the Government is supported by Asian Development Bank loan of 800 million to connect 4,200 far –flung communities to crucial markets and services with 9,000 km of all-weather rural roads in these five states by the end of 2017.
