The National Highways Authority of India has made mandatory use of drones for monthly video recording of National Highway projects during all stages of development, construction, operation and maintenance. The initiative aims to enhance transparency, uniformity leveraging the latest technology, 

Contractors and Concessionaires shall carry out the drone video recording in presence of the team leader of the supervision consultant and upload comparative project videos of the current and last month on NHAI’s portal ‘Data Lake’, capturing various project-related developments during the month. Supervision consultants shall analyse these videos and will provide their comments on the digital monthly progress reports covering various aspects of the project development. These videos will also be used by NHAI officials during the physical inspection of the projects to check the discrepancies and rectifications made basis the earlier observations.
 
Additionally, project directors of NHAI shall undertake monthly drone survey from the date of signing of the contract agreement till the start of construction of the project at site and also on completion of the project. NHAI will also undertake monthly drone survey in all developed projects where NHAI is responsible for operation and maintenance.
Since these videos will be permanently stored on the ‘Data Lake’, they can also be used as evidence during the dispute resolution process before Arbitral Tribunals and Courts.
 
Apart from this, mandatory deployment of a Network Survey Vehicle (NSV) to carry out a road condition survey on the National Highways to enhance quality will enhance the overall quality of the highways as NSV uses the latest survey techniques such as a high-resolution digital camera for 360-degree imagery, Laser Road Profilometer and other latest technology for the measurement of distress in the road surface.
