This association will be a boon to MMRDA’s flagship project, the Mumbai Metro,” says R A Rajeev, Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA. “I have personally briefed the bankers on the details of the project and emphasised upon our need to protect the environment while being socially responsible. The MMRDA Metro project will be one of the best in the world and we look forward to working with KfW.”
