Farm­ers can now turn 2.6 acres land along the na­tional high­ways into “high­ways nests”, where NHAI will let them change land use from agri­cul­ture to com­mer­cial. Un­der this plan, farm­ers own­ing 2.6 acres of land along na­tional high­ways can de­velop these land parcels into a high­way nests or high­way vil­lages with pre­scribed ser­vices rang­ing from qual­ity food to clean toi­lets and com­fort­able rest­ing fa­cil­i­ties for trav­el­ers. NHAI will al­low ac­cess to these fa­cil­i­ties from high­ways and help land own­ers to get the land use changed from agri­cul­ture to com­mer­cial cat­e­gories. These fa­cil­i­ties will get the NHAI brand name and will have to com­ply with high qual­i­ty­ser­vice level bench­marks.
