[NOTES]
Object & Reasons6

 

Statement of Objects and Reasons. – Under an agreement entered into with the then existing Provinces, the Government of India provisionally accepted entire financial liability, with effect from the 1st April, 1947, for the construction, development and maintenance of certain highways in the Provinces which were considered suitable for inclusion in a system of national highways. Upon the creation of the Part B States and the new Part C States under the Constitution, the national highways scheme was extended to those States also.

(2) Under Entry 23 of the Union List, Parliament has exclusive power of legislation with respect to highways which are declared to be national highways by or under law made by Parliament. It is, therefore, proposed that the highways comprised in the Schedule annexed to this Bill should be declared to be national highways. Such a declaration would help the Central Government in exercising its powers with respect to the development and maintenance of these highways more effectively. Power is also sought to be vested in the Central Government to declare, by notification, other highways to be national highways. Power should also be given to the Central Government to enter into agreements with the State Governments or municipal authorities with respect to the development or maintenance of any portion of any national highway and fees may have to be levied in respect of certain types of services rendered on national highways.

Amendment Act 30 of 1977-Statement of Objects and Reasons. – Section 7 of the National Highways Act, 1956, empowers the Central Government to levy fees for services or benefits rendered in relation to the use of ferries, temporary bridges and tunnels on national highways. This section does not enable the levying of such fees on permanent bridges. With a view to facilitating the raising of additional resources for the development of national highways, it is proposed to amend the said section 7 so as to enable such fees being levied on permanent bridges costing more than rupees 25 lakhs and opened to traffic on or after 1st April, 1976. It is also proposed to include an enabling provision to exempt any bridge from the payment of fees if it is considered necessary in the public interest.

2. Opportunity is also being availed of to make some consequential amendments in the Act.

Amendment Act 1 of 1993-Statement of Objects and Reasons. – Section 7 of the National Highways Act, 1956 provides for the levy of fees by the Central Government for services or benefits rendered in relation to the use of ferries, bridges and tunnels on national highways. The need to augment resources for the development of national highways has been felt since long. Certain sections of the national highways are, therefore, intended to be selected for the purpose of levying fees for the use of such sections.

2. It is, therefore, proposed to empower the Central Government to levy fees for services or benefits rendered in relation to the use of any section of a national highway. Consequently, the aforesaid Act is sought to be amended.

Amendment Act 26 of 1995-Statement of Objects and Reasons. – Proper development of road infrastructure is essential for economic development of the country. However, due to constrain of resources, it has not been possible to allocate sufficient funds for the development of road sector in the country. Therefore, a need has been felt to tap private entrepreneurship and private resources in the development of road sector. With this in view, the Government has taken a number of measurers like the declaration of road sector as an industry and infrastructure facility and certain other concessions. A number of private investors including foreign investors have shown interest in the proposal to open the road sector for private investment. However, in the absence of an enabling provision in the National Highways Act, 1956, it is not possible to enter into agreements with private investors for the development of roads.

2. It is, therefore, proposed to enable the Central Government:-

(i) to enter into agreement with any person in relation to the development and maintenance of the whole or part of a national highways;

(ii) to levy fees and authorise the person who has undertaken to develop the whole or any part of a national highways to collect such fee;

(iii) to empower such person to regulate traffic on such national highway.
