It 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.

As per the new numbering system:

All north-south oriented highways will have even numbers increasing from the east to the west

All east-west oriented highways will have odd numbers increasing from the north to the south

All major Highways will be single digit or double digit in number

Three-digit numbered highways are secondary routes or branches of a main highway. The secondary route number is prefixed to the number of the main highway. For example, 144, 244, 344 etc. will be the branches of the main NH44

Suffixes A, B, C, D etc. are added to the three-digit sub highways to indicate very small spin-offs or stretches of sub-highways
