Decision on Metro Project Still Pending
Even after five months since the UT Administration submitted the detailed project report (DPR) for the Metro Rail to the Ministry of Urban Development (MUD) for its appraisal, the decision on metro project is still pending.

In February, the ministry filed some queries to which the UT has replied. Still, the decision is yet to be taken. Even if the MUD approves of the project, the work on the metro project won’t start soon. It will take at least a period of one year to initiate the metro project. The Metro is proposed to be underground within sectoral grid of Chandigarh.

In the first phase two corridors of Metro have been proposed. The North-South corridor would extend from Capitol Complex to Gurdwara Shaheeda, while the East-West corridor would be from Transport Area in Mohali to Grain Market in Panchkula.
