Indore is one of the fastest transitioning cities in India and has come out to become one of the biggest industrial hubs too. Hence, the approval of the metro project in Indore by the Union cabinet has come as a big relief.

The government in an inspiring move in the beginning of October allocated 14,000 crore rupees for the Madhya Pradesh metro connectivity project. A separate body called the ‘Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Co Ltd.’ (MPMRCL) was constituted to look after the project with Indore and Bhopal in the forefront of the development. The first tenders for the same have been sent out and the work is expected to start soon.

The initial Indore Metro project would run along the Ring Line starting from Bengali Square-Vijaynagar Square-Chandragupta Square-Bhawarsala Square-Airport-Rajwada Palace-Bengali Square.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, in a recent public gathering (campaign) said that he would make Indore the best city in the world in next 5 years, “Indore has now been the cleanest city in the country twice, we’ll take it further by making it world’s best city”.

The estimated expenditure on the project would be approximately 7,500 crore for Indore and 6,941 crore for Bhopal. The projects would be part-funded by both the Union and the State governments, plus with loans from Asian Development Bank (ADB) and New Development Bank (NDB) for Indore. The project is expected to complete within four years.
