India will not allow Chinese companies to participate in highway projects: Gadkari
Talking to a news agency, Mr Gadkari said government will ensure that Chinese companies are not entertained in various sectors like MSMEs.
He said this is a step towards making India self reliant.
The Minister said permission for road construction will not be given to joint ventures that have Chinese partners.
He also said that a policy will be out soon banning Chinese firms and relaxing norms for Indian companies to expand their eligibility criteria for participation in highway projects.
