Connectivity Profile

Road connectivity issue is one of the infrastructure bottlenecks encountered by Pherzawl district. The main connecting lifeline of the the district with neighbouring Churachandpur district is the Tipaimukh Road (NH 150 now a part of the newly numbered NH 2) which pass through the district headquarter Pherzawl and other main villages of the district. Other important roads are Jiribam-Tipaimukh Road (JT Road), Nungba-Thanlon Road (NT Road), NEC Road and other inter-village roads connecting between habitations.

Telecom connectivity is another challenges faced by the district. Pherzawl district is yet to be linked with the rest of the world by mobile network sans few pockets where mobile network are signaled by distant cell towers of neighbouring districts or states. The presence of BSNL’s WLL connections in some of the villages are saviours which serves as SOS lines for the populace of the district.

Tipaimukh Road is a National Highway in Manipur, India, designated NH-150. The Central Government of India declared Tipaimukh Road, a State Highway in Manipur, a National Highway (NH 150) on 6 January 1999. The total length of this highway is 700 km, and is the third National Highway passing through the state of Manipur, together with NH 53 and NH 39. This highway has been proposed to connect three bordering states in Northeast India, viz. Mizoram (141 km), Manipur (523 km) and Nagaland (36 km). The highway stretch starts from Seling (NH 54) in Mizoram through Tipaimukh-Imphal-Ukhrul-Jessami in Manipur and terminates at a junction with NH-53 in Nagaland (km 0 at Kohima).
