According to the proposal, a 'Dhaba' complex would be constructed at every 30 km on the national and state highways, apart from four and six lane stretches connecting tourist places such as Gaya, Bodh Gaya, Rajgir, Nalanda, Pawapuri, Bagha National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary, Sitamarhi, Kaimur, among other places.

‘Dhaba' concept came from the 302-km long Agra-Lucknow Expressway which has 'Dhabas' at a distance of nearly 100 km, said sources.

Each 'Dhaba' will have quality eateries, restaurants, ice-cream parlours, medical shop, small parks, apart from basic amenities such as clean toilets.

"The 'Dhabas' will be constructed by the state government and its outlets would be allotted to individuals. The idea is to create jobs in those places and generate revenue for the state government. The department will also give loans to individuals to establish outlets," an official said, requesting anonymity to IANS.
