Hi Yogesh,

NH is about 1,00,087 Kms ; may be we have mapped 90-95%
SH is less than 2,00,000 Kms, we would have mapped 60-70%.

Total road length is about 10,00,000 kms.

States which have decently mapped NH and SH can move next level.
Major District Road or Urban Roads [owned by Corporations or

For example in Kerala we have decently mapped NH and SH.
Once SH mapping is reached 90% we have to move to MDR.
Because more data on MDR is available than urban roads.
