Another 34 major cities in India in the process of obtaining approval to commence construction of Metro rail systems, as of January 28, 2013:

Anticipating proposals to set up metro rail in 34 cities that have one million plus population, the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) has drafted a consolidated policy that focuses on both public-private partnership and government funding models for the reference of state government. Most of the cities are in UP, Maharashtra, MP, Gujarat and Punjab.

"We have come out with this consolidated new metro railway policy, in case somebody wants to approach us for assistance in such projects. We keep getting lot of requests from state and city administrations. This will aid them in drafting their own feasibility reports," Sudhir Krishna, secretary, MoUD said.

The ministry however has supported the government-funded model as success rate of PPP model is yet to be ascertained. The policy stated that PPP is supported where the corridor is mostly elevated and ridership quite high.

"Globally only 18 per cent of metro rail projects have been taken up under PPP model and that PPP experience in India is limited and to be observed for some more time before any conclusion can be drawn, the MoUD prefers government funding with equity participation by the government of India," the policy noted.

"So far we are working on the proposals forwarded by cities like Ludhiana, Pune, Chandigarh, Guwahati, Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Surat to name a few," said Krishna.

Wow, very nice updates on this page!
Thanks for sharing them, Abinash89.

Mumbai Monorail and Gurgaon Metro will likely open within the next few months; in fact, they may even commence operation next month!

There are so many urban mass rapid transit systems under construction and / or approval or existing networks being expanded in India presently that it's quite mind-boggling.

However, I believe the real big boom in urban transit in India will happen towards the end of this decade.

PRT (Personal Rapid Transit) is presently under stages of approval in the following two cities in northern India, in a bid to reduce / eliminate car-based travel:-

(1) Gurgaon (Haryana State)
(2) Amritsar (Punjab State)

A personal rapid transport system to eliminate cars in future

All transport nodes in these cities are being designed to be within ten minutes of walking from residential and commercial areas. DMIC is developing rail and bus transport systems in phase I, and light rail in the later phases.

There will be new options available around the world after that, like a personal rapid system (PRT). They are small automated vehicles moving on dedicated tracks, and they are being tried in some cities around the world, including Amritsar in India. Urban experts think that PRT will eliminate cars in future cities.
