Bihar to have Metro Rail services soon

Officials from the state met Ganjendra Haldiya, the adviser to planning commission deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia in New Delhi on September 14, where the nod was given to start work for the around Rs 8,000-crore project, Kumar said.

“We want to start the Metro Rail service at the earliest for better transport facilities in the fast-developing capital of Bihar. The project is planned in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model,” the minister said.

“It is just beginning of the exercise … we will try to complete the project on the two routes at the earliest,” he said, while declining to specify a time frame.
