Well if you ask me to read your post carefully, you should read mine in the same manner too. I did mention I was talking about the current system and the system under construction. If you want to compare the possible future expansion with other systems, you have to compare with their possible future expansion too. The reason why I talked about the current system and the one under construction is that the future possible extension may change completely or delayed for decades. There're numerous examples like this. And I mentioned Delhi thread has the potential for getting more attentions.

10. Cairo - 18.5 million

''Delhi is now the world’s second most populous city with 25 million inhabitants. Tokyo remains the world’s largest city with 38 million inhabitants. The 2014 revision of the World Urbanisation Prospects by U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA)’s Population Division has pointed to rapid urban growth in India, China and Nigeria.Further, the report says that while Tokyo’s population is projected to decline, Delhi’s would continue to grow rapidly and by 2030, the Capital would have 36 million inhabitants, only a million less than Tokyo’s 37 million then.''

Thanks for correcting my outdated information. I appreciate it. However, there's discrepancy in the population statistics, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._by_population, Seoul has 25.6 M people in 2012, unless they are losing people, which is not very possible. But I did not argue on the point whether it is a populous metropolitan or not. Not to mention one of the most populous cities, Karachi, does not even have a thread. Anyway, this is not the point here because we are talking about infrastructure, transportation, technology and other related topics here.

I'm not talking from a western perspective but you are talking from an Indian perspective. This is supposedly a place for fans of urban transportation but not for propaganda of how huge the progress of a government on infrastructure is to an average Indian, Chinese or Indonesian. On the other hand, a true Indian fan of transportation should be interested in subway systems around the world but not just Indian ones mutually. Being said that, we should appreciate any sharing from anyone anywhere to all others so that we all benefit.

All I wanted to say is that having a separate thread should be based on the necessity and popularity but a mere honor to a particular city.
