Patna Metro Rail project gets PIB nod

The Public Investment Board (PIB), an autonomous body to examine investment plans of different ministries of the Central government, gave its nod to the proposal of Patna Metro Rail project.

Chaitanya Prasad, principal secretary of urban development department (UDD), Bihar, said, “Everything is in place and all queries regarding the project have been replied with technical details.”

Prasad, who was present at the PIB meeting in Delhi, added: “We hope the proposal will have no difficulty in getting through the Union cabinet.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to lay the foundation stone for the project once the revised detailed project report (DPR) is cleared by the Union cabinet.

The state government had earlier submitted revised DPR of the project, conceived by the Bihar government in 2013, to the Centre for the mandatory procedural clearance.
