National Highway 717 (NH 717) is a national highway in India. This highway runs entirely in the state of West Bengal.[1] It is a secondary route of National Highway 17. Prior to renumbering of national highways in 2010, the stretch between Chalsa and Mainaguri was part of old national highway 31.[2] By a gazette notification on 27 December 2013, NH-717 route was extended from Mainaguri to land border crossing of India/Bangladesh border near Changrabandha.[3] Mainaguri to Changrabandha stretch of this route is part of Asian Highway 48.[4]
