As per the exchange filing of the railway company, RITES Ltd. and DMRC have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on all-encompassing operations and management projects of Metro Railway Systems, encompassing Rolling Stock, Depot Management, Station Management, and Railway infrastructure maintenance, both domestically and internationally.

"As a part of this collaboration, DMRC and RITES will work together in tandem, leveraging each other's strengths and enhancing business capabilities," RITES stated.
