The major challenges for NTRC pertain to availability of financial resources for the research activities. During the current financial year 2012-13, NTRC has not been provided the funds under PSDP. This has resulted in hampering the research program which is essentially required to plan and implement road projects worth billion of rupees. The CTTI is confronted with the challenges of shortage of accommodation for instructors/students as well as shortage of shed for plant/machinery and introduction of new courses to meet the industrial requirement. FUTURE POLICY PRIORITIES In this Financial Year i.e. 2013-2014, NHA has planned to spend about Rs. 17 Billion on different schemes and hence is anticipated that a significant drop in value of roughness may be achieved. The NH&MP is in the process of policing on M-4, N-25, N-50 and N-65, Establishment of Emergency Medical Assistance and Help centers on National Highways in Balochistan and creation of posts of motor vehicle examiner along with supporting staff. The NTRC is in the process of preparing a new project "Research Program of NTRC". The main component of the proposed program include Planning & Policy formulation studies covering the transport sector in the context of national and international transport for development of Pakistan as a transit-hub, road research studies, urban transport research, transportation information services, diligence checks, pilot demonstration projects and training facilities in the field of transport planning and engineering. In order to build the capacity of Pakistan ICT human resources and improve the ICT industry of Pakistan, a Korea Information Communication Technology Centre of Excellence is under construction in CTTI under the overall supervision of KOICA with the cost of Rs. 445 Million funded by Government of Korea as Grant in Aid and Rs. 40.28 Million as local component from PSDP. Enshaa Group in collaboration with CTTI and Central Institute of Training Australia will train masters in Australia who will in turn train the students at CTTI. CTTI will establish close bondage/linkage with the national industry. The feedback gathered should be used to revise curriculum and train the trainees as per the requirement of industry.
