Note: With respect to information available on highway no., road length etc., different sources quote different figures. Readers are advise to apply your own discretion when referring to the details below. For the sake of objectivity, data from different sources are given below.

On 28 April 2010, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH) officially published a new numbering system for the National Highways in the Gazette of the Government of India. The new numbering system is a systematic numbering scheme based on the orientation and the geographic location of the highway. This was adopted to ensure more flexibility and consistency in the numbering of existing and new national highways.
