my only concern is that 'national highway' tag is meaningless - it just means 
that the road is maintained by the NHAI. Which means that any two-bit 
politician with influence can get his road made into a national highway. This 
has happened in Nilgiris district where a road between district headquarters 
and taluk headquarters is now a national highway. Whereas a four-lane divided 
highway bewteen Bangalore and Mysore is a state highway. We need to classify 
metros/cities and towns in a degree of importance and classify the roads 
linking them accordingly. Possibly the best way to classify would be to take 
the central government rating for purposes of DA. This will give an accurate 
representation of the status of towns and the status of roads linking them.

I know that I am in a minority of one in this matter - I dont mind, I am used 
to it ;-)
