Abstract—An attempt has been made in present study to analyze inspection reports of National Quality Monitors (NQMs) of the rural roads constructed under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) scheme in different states of India during the period of November 2010 to March 2012. Further, an attempt has also been made to find out the rankings of critical items such as Earth work and Sub-grade, Sub-Base, Base Course and Bituminous Layer contributing to Unsatisfactory (U) overall grading of road works. The study also includes finding the rankings of sub-items within these items contributing to U overall grading of these Items. The data of NQM Inspection Reports has been taken from the website of National Rural Roads Developing Agency (NRRDAs) and detail analysis has been carried out for finding of the rankings of Items/Sub- Items contributing to U grading of road works and respective Items. The study results will be very useful in deciding the appropriate strategy for quality improvement priorities amongst different Items/sub-items and for the rural road works constructed under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) scheme in India.
