Due to massive losses and lack of cooperation between the two administrations, the Southern Railway of the Indian Railways (IR) has approved the long-awaited merger proposal of the Chennai Mass Rapid Transit System with Chennai Metro Rail. Due to conflicts between the Tamil Nadu government and IR's Southern Railway over land acquisition to lay a new MRTS line between Beach and Park Stations, the plan to integrate MRTS with Chennai Metro Rail (CMRL) was put on hold after 2018, an issue which will not be connected to Metro's acquisition of MRTS. Every year, MRTS has reported an operational loss of Rs.1 bn.Contact: Chennai Metro Rail (CMRL)Tel:  044-2379 2000E-mail: chennaimetrorail@cmrl.inWebsite: chennaimetrorail.org
