In order to hire a consultancy to assess the sustainability of UDAN (regional connectivity plan) in the lack of viability gap funding, the NITI Aayog has issued a request for proposals (RFP).
This experiment aims to assess the scheme’s applicability and determine whether it has helped passengers travel more affordably. “The focus of the desk research is to understand how VGF, including the NER (Northeast Region), can be improved and assess its effectiveness through a fiscal and economic lens,” according to the RFP document.
The study will make use of qualitative stakeholder interviews and traveller surveys. “On average, 50 passengers in each selected RCS airport/heliport/water aerodrome would be surveyed about their perceptions of RCS-UDAN scheme,” the RFP stated.
