India’s growing metro pie: 1016 km, 27 cities

From zero to 702 km since Kolkata’s first line was made operational in 1984, India’s metro-rail system has seen remarkable growth.

Approximately 1,016 km of metro rail under construction in 27 cities and another 2,500 km likely to be constructed in the next decade to cater to the growing urban population. WIth this, India has already emerged as the largest market for rail-based urban transport projects in the world outside China.

Additionally, under the Central Government’s asset monetisation plan, the operation of completed metro-rail projects is likely to emerge as a big opportunity for private players.
