You can tell a country by its roads, they say. The longer the roads, the faster the growth; the broader the roads, the better its development. And smooth roads always mean a healthy, vibrant economy. ´The economic impact of good roads can never be understated,´ says Vinod Agarwal, Managing Director, GR InfraProjects, a leading Udaipur-based road developer. ´To boost our country´s GDP, we need sustained investments in infrastructure.´
