The annual Master Circular FY 2016-17 (2.5.2.8 (e)) further emphasizes that the rural connectivity will be usable in all weather, only when the required technical inputs are given & compaction at optimum moisture content with power roller are carried out. The need for quality of work of roads also has been reiterated in the AMC at para 2.5.3.2, whereas it has been mentioned that Cement Concrete (CC) roads should be functionally durable for 10-15 years and gravel/WBM roads for 5-10 years.
