Nagpur Metro phase ii delayed by months
Mahametro may be sticking to its schedule, but other agencies associated with it are not. Its consultant RITES, which is preparing the detailed project report (DPR) for phase II of Nagpur Metro, has told Mahametro that the report will be ready by June-end. The report was supposed to be ready by April-end. A source in Mahametro said RITES would submit the draft this month. “We will suggest some modifications, if any, and then our consultant will submit the final report in June end,” he added. Maha Metro will send the DPR to the state urban development ministry for approval. The ministry will go through it and send it to the state cabinet. After the cabinet approves it, the report will be forwarded to Niti Ayog. After Ayog members are satisfied with the report, it will be sent to the Union cabinet. Phase II will be considered approved only after the Union cabinet clears it.
