Prelims and Mains focus: about the draft national logistics policy: benefits and challenges in implementation
News: In her Union budget speech, the finance minister said the government will release the policy soon.
Benefits of the policy
Challenges in implementation
The main challenge is while some of the subjects covered under the policy come under the Centre, the rest are controlled by states. The development of multi-modal logistics parks, or rules to do with motor vehicle movement, come under states. So, unless there is alignment between the Centre and the states, this policy will be hard to implement.
