Itanagar: The Union Road Transport & National Highways ministry has approved the 407 km Putin-Pangin road which passes through three districts of Arunachal Pradesh.

The road, part of the ambitious Trans-Arunachal Highway (TAH), which will touch Ziro, Daporijo and Aalo was approved by Union Road Transport & National Highways Minister C P Joshi yesterday, Lok Sabha member from Arunachal Takam Sanjoy said in a statement today.

The Hyderabad-based ECI Engineering & Constructions Pvt Ltd would execute the projects.
