Economic Times reported that the state cabinet cleared the Phase II of Nagpur Metro project worth INR 11,216 crore. The Phase I of Nagpur Metro worth INR 8,680 crore is being executed by MahaMetro and is about 75% complete. Mr Brijesh Dixit MahaMetro managing director said that the detailed project report will go to union ministry of housing and urban affairs (MoHUA) and other concerned ministries. He said that “It will be then put up before Public Investment Board (PIB) of ministry of finance. Then it will be forwarded to union cabinet.”

Phase II will provide connectivity to areas adjacent to Nagpur like Kamptee, Wadi, Hingna, Pardi and Butibori industrial estate.

Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari had stressed many times that Phase I would not be viable unless these areas got Metro connectivity.

The length of Phase II is 48.3km and it has 35 stations. Its DPR was cleared by state urban development ministry headed by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis last week. MahaMetro had submitted the DPR to the ministry in July 2017. Gadkari had expressed annoyance over the delay by the ministry.
