    Oh thats great, really nice to see more tangible evidence of India's meteoric rise. Congrats to the people of Delhi. Been to Mumbai a couple of times, but don't remember seeing a system like this there; is there a time frame for one being developed there?

    Why yes there is. Three metro lines (2 under construction) and one monorail line (almost complete) are being made.

    ^^It's hardly their fault. You know about our stupid babu culture and how one aggravated party can get a stay order and these projects get delayed by years

    More Metro's definitely..you are just looking at the investment gone into the infrastructure. If you see the time saved in travel, saved fuel, less traffic congestion, safety, low travel expenses etc will help to boost Delhi's productivity & savings thus benefiting the city in longer run. On the other hand building more roads is not the answer to Delhi travel woes...roads are good but more vehicles on road will only add to travel & environmental problems. Besides where will you build the roads in Delhi??? Land acquisition in Delhi will not be easy task. Different travel modes are necessary for smooth functioning of the city.

    Yes they are but they are essential for survival otherwise our cities will be dead. We can't run our country or grow our economy if it takes 2-3 hours to reach offices due to traffic jam.

    First of all its Rs 567.63 crore which includes loan amount for Phase I and interest amounts for Phases I and II, to the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

    Delhi Metro paid back Rs 567 cr in loan and interest to JICA - Hindustan Times

    From starting Delhi Metro doesn't have any money even Delhi Metro was not there but it all get arranged.

    You need to understand Delhi Metro is not wall mart it don't have any money or any other metro in the world don't have any money they need funding.

    But Delhi Metro is running efficiently and smoothly.

    The money is not an issue. When we can build Metro in 10-12 cities of India how on earth you takes Delhi Metro having money as a problem.

    Metro Phase 3: Japanese team to meet DMRC directors today - Hindustan Times


    1.) No its not like this

    The existence of multilateral institutions are for these kinds of projects only otherwise they have no role.

    2.) You need to know the economics better we any nation can't survive forget about development if it takes 2-3 hours to reach office.

    3.) You are forgetting that because of the Delhi Metro some 5,00,000 vehicles are off the roads if you calculate these vehicles uses 10 liter of fuel diesel/petrol each that makes 50,00,000 Liters per day.

    Now, 50,00,000 liters X Rs. 6 (Fuel subsidy provided by govt.) = Rs. 3 crore per day. Rs. 3 crore per day X 365 days = Rs. 1095

    That means govt. is saving about Rs. 1100 crore per year by providing metro.

    Its govt. which have to pay in the end if they provide fuel subsidy or Metro Train.

    But by providing Metro train :

    a.) There is very less pollution.

    b.) There is no traffic jam.

    c.) General Public is saving money, time and energy while traveling.

    d.) Lesser accidents.

    e.) Less wear and tear of roads.

    f.) Thousands of new jobs and skilled manpower

    g.) Evolution of new industry we can export also

    h.) Boost to economy as bog economic activities provide a stimulus to economy

    i.) Other industries like steel, cement, construction etc. are also benefiting

    The list goes on and on.

    In the end govt is there to provide solution and comfort to public its their job. They are chosen only for this reason.
