Upgradation works will be proposed in a district only if no new connectivity remains to be taken up. The selection of roads for upgradation will be done on the basis of a Road Condition Survey of the Core Network of the District which will establish a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) on a rating scale. After the Road Condition Survey is completed, a Comprehensive Upgradation Priority List (CUPL) for the District shall be prepared. The only exception is if the Through Routes in the District are in such poor condition that the new connectivity link does not give all-weather farm to market access. In such cases, from the CNCPL, it is possible to identify such Through Routes (called associated Through Routes) and conduct a Road Condition Survey for such roads only, in order to be able to decide whether or not they need to be upgraded along with the new connectivity of the attached link road.
