Based on construction and management, roads in India are classified into four; 

1. National Highways : The major roads in the country linking the state capitals, major cities and ports. The Union Ministry is responsible for their construction and management.

2. State Highways : The major roads in a state connecting the state capitals with the district headquarters. State governments are responsible for their construction and management.

3. District Roads : Roads linking the district headquarters with the important places within the district. These roads are built and maintained by district panchayats.

4. Village Roads : Roads which ensure domestic movement within the villages. These roads are constructed and maintained by local self government.
