The Highways Ministry plans to award these projects on PPP basis before the end of the fiscal year after taking the Cabinet's approval, informed the Highways Ministry in a note. Of the six proposals approved, five are on build-operate-transfer (toll) and one is on BOT (annuity).

This also includes the much awaited Eastern Peripheral Expressway, which will ease traffic in Delhi.
