This is unusual since only local civil infra companies bid for something as simple as elevated stations. Maybe this company was part of a consortium, which is usually the requirement for int. companies to bid.
(15/06/2012) City & Industrial Development Corporation of Maharastra (CIDCO), agency under the State Government of Maharashtra, has awarded San José Constructora the contract for the design and construction of five elevated stations for the new Navi Mumbai Metro Line 1.

Central Park of Kharghar, Pethpada, Sector 34 Kharghar, Panchanand and Pendhar are the stations that comprise Line 1 of Navi Mumbai metro system. Navi Mumbai is a new municipality in the State of Maharashtra with a total population over 2 million inhabitants and located within the metropolitan area of Bombay.

All five metro stations will be elevated. The contract includes the design of the project, the construction of the stations and the rail corridor thereof, as well as the implementation of passenger access areas, facilities and related finishing works.

Srinagar Light Rail / Mini-Metro Rail system proposal sent to Jammu and Kashmir state cabinet on August 5th-

A Metro rail network for Srinagar and adjoining areas to overcome the problem of mounting traffic congestion in the city has been proposed by the Srinagar Development Authority.
The proposal of "light metro and mini metro" was mooted at a meeting of the SDA here chaired by Minister for Urban Development Nawang Rigzin Jora to review the progress of Srinagar Master Plan, an official spokesman said.

The proposal will now go before Jammu and Kashmir Cabinet for approval.

The proposed metro lines will span from Gallandar in Pulwama district on the South up to Narbal Chowk on the North in Budgam district and from Nowgam Railway Station up to Ganderbal, he said.

Scarcity of quality and planned road networks besides the lack of organised parking facilities in Srinagar city has led to high degree of traffic congestion that is going to aggravate further in the coming time.

"To overcome the traffic and transportation problems in the city, SDA has, in the new Master Plan, proposed a network of light metro and mini metro besides suggesting a network of new roads, flyovers, grade-separators and subways for Srinagar," the spokesman said.

Out of the two proposed Metro lines, the one originating from Gallandar, the take-off point of the new expressway, after passing through Pampore, Sumarbugh, Panthachowk, Sonawar, Dalgate, Lal Chowk, Jehangir Chowk, Batamaloo, Bemina, JVC, Parimpora, Zainakote, Lawaypora, would end at Narbal Crossing, he said.

The second Metro line would operate from Nowgam Railway Station and after moving over to Bagh-e-Mehtab would pass through Chanapora, Natipora, Rambagh, Mehjoor Nagar, Jawahar Nagar, LD Hospital, Jehangir Chowk, Barbarshah, Baba Demb, Khanyar, Nowhatta, Hawal, Alamgari Bazaar, Bagh-e-Ali Mardan Khan, Nowshehra, SKIMS, Soura-Buchpora, Pandach and culminate at Ganderbal, he added.

Jehangir Chowk would form the junction of the two Metro lines which would provide reliable connectivity to the core area of the city, the spokesman said.

Besides delineating a transportation plan, the Srinagar Master Plan has earmarked dedicated hubs for various specialized activities including education, information technology, industry, agro activities, tourism, handicrafts and health care, he said.

Going by the tunneling rate, you can have a guestimate of expected completion date.

Which Indian cities already have a metro and in which ones have it under construction or in advance stages of planning?

In theory there could be as many as 30-40 subway systems in India. Obviously there aren't that many...

Metro Rail is also operational in the cities of Faridabad, Noida and Ghaziabad.

Metro Rail is also under construction in all the cities mentioned earlier as well as in Ahmedabad - Gandhinagar, Greater Noida and Bahadurgarh.

In various stages of planning, there are more than 20 cities working on Metro Rail.

Which part is wrong? As far as I know the general claim that building works are much slower than they ought to be is true...

I noticed that too. General claim on slow progress in most of metros is right but specific facts are wrong and mixed up. Seems to be written without much research.

I just saw that, according to the official website of the Navi Mumbai Metro, the capacity of the rolling stock for the Navi Mumbai Metro will be 1,125 passengers for a three-coach train and 2,250 passengers for a six-coach train, and each coach will have a length of 22 metres. It means there is a maximum of 375 passengers for one coach.

By comparison, the capacity of a train of the Mumbai Metro will be 1,100 passengers (in a four-coach train. It is unknown what the length of a four-coach train of the Mumbai Metro is (though Mumbai Metro stations' platforms have a length of 136 to 140 metres).

Is there any reason how a train in the Navi Mumbai Metro can have more capacity than a train in the Mumbai Metro?

(I'm talking maximum capacity of a metro's train.)
