Metro rail to start operating from Nov 28 on 30km Route

Hyderabad Metro

The Telangana government has proposed to inaugurate the first phase of Hyderabad metro rail project on November 28 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, state Municipal Administration Minister K T Rama Rao told the Legislative Assembly today. The Government was in receipt of communication from L&T over cost overruns because of various reasons, but no decision had been taken to concede requests of the executing agency.

He, however, said the government had not yet confirmed cost escalation or committed to bear the additional expenditure. The HMR project, being developed across three corridors in the city, is the world's largest public-private partnership project (PPP) in the sector.

The minister did not give any figure but the revised project cost is estimated to be almost Rs 19,000 crore.

"Readying for Hyderabad Metro.Launch end of this month".

Stock Intraday Alert: Delta Air Lines, Inc. (DAL)
Delta Air Lines presently has a consensus rating of "Buy" and an average target price of $63.39. (NYSE:DAL) for 85,550 shares. Short traders are feeling a little more bullish on Delta Air Lines Inc lately as inferred by the fall in short interest.

The entire project, barring 5 km stretch in the Old City and about 1 km stretch between Hitec city and Raidurg, is now likely to completed by the end of 2018.

The state government has sanctioned Rs 3,000 crore to the Hyderabad Metro rail project of which Rs 2,240 crore has been spent so far.

"We are yet to receive confirmation from the Prime Minister's Office but it is expected any moment", said the minister. He refuted the claim of the Opposition that there was delay in the execution of the project.

KTR said Hyderabad Metro Rail would be creating a record because all the other metros in other parts country have begun operating only 11-km route whereas it would be a 30-km route in the capital city. On the MMTS phase-II, Mr. Rama Rao said the Centre had asked the State to explore prospects of making the project externally aided so that 60 per cent of funds could be mobilised through global agencies while the State and the Centre would contribute 20 per cent each to the remaining cost.
