Green Striped Milestone :

When you see a green strip landmark on the side of the road, then it means that you are not on the National Highway but on the State Highway. In India, when roads are constructed or manufactured by the State then green coloured milestones are used and the maintenance of these roads are done entirely by the State.


Black, Blue or White Striped Milestone :

When you see a milestone with a black, blue or white strip on the roadside, then it is understood that you entered in a big city or district. At the same time maintenance of these roads comes under district or we can say that these roads are maintained only by the administration of the same city.



Orange Colour Striped Milestone :

When you see a milestone or a landmark with an orange stripe on the side of the road, then it means that you entered in the village. This strip also represents Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana.
