PM Modi launches BEML-built coach for Mumbai Metro under the Make in India initiative
On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a slew of metro projects in Mumbai and launched a metro coach built indigenously under the Make in India programme, in a visit that comes ahead of the assembly elections scheduled in October.
Modi conducted the bhoomipoojan for metro line 10 (Gaimukh-Shivaji Chowk), line 11 (Wadala-Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus) and line 12 (Kalyan-Taloja) and the proposed Metro Bhavan in Aarey. PM Modi inaugurated projects worth more than Rs 20,000 crore.
The coach, the first in the list of 500 to be delivered to the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation, has been built by Bharat Earth Movers (BEML) at its Bengaluru facility in flat 75 days. Maharashtra is pumping in over Rs 1.2 lakh crore to build 14 metro corridors stretching 337-km over the next decade.
