Transport being the most important and complex subject in the modern world where safe, quick and cost effective movement of men, machines and materials, is the objective of all governments and businesses. The new Indian government has focused on all modes of transportation, be it by road, rail, water, or air. When the demand of development increases, there will be a need to attend to high volume of men, machines and materials. The capacity building of the road and transportation sector needs to be made to improve upon the execution potential. Keeping this into mind, India International Road & Transportation Fair (IIRTF) is being organised by CSIR-Central Road Research Institute (CSIR-CRRI), New Delhi jointly with India Trade Promotion Organization (ITPO), New Delhi during September 17-19, 2014 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
