Analysing the impact of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)
FULL AUDIO OF TALK

Listen to the full audio of the talk (above) by Samuel Asher from the University of Oxford where he shares findings from a comprehensive study on the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).

Asher discusses the links between the lack of rural infrastructure, employment, and economic outcomes. He highlights that poor rural transportation infrastructure is a major constraint on the sectoral allocation of labour in low income countries, elaborating on the impact of the PMGSY in enabling local workers to access external labour markets.
