Applications for this massive funding tranche have to be received by 6 May 2024. Of the DOT’s funding, $2.7 billion will be for the INFRA programme, while $1.7 billion is being directed to the Mega programme. A further $780 million is being directed towards projects in rural areas as part of the Rural Programme.
