Are there any plans to bring the Delhi Ring Railway up to Metro standards? Maybe hand over control of the tracks to DMRC and have them convert it to Metro specifications? They could either continue to run it as a "circle" (like Moscow's Line 5 or the old London Underground Circle Line) or else run two separate non-circular metro routes along its length.

I know there are problems with the stations being unsafe but this could be soluble by adding cameras in all stations and and trains, and with proper lighting in the stations and areas surrounding the stations.

Bihar CM Gives In-Principle Approval for Patna’s 27.88 km Metro System

Quote:
During a recent meeting with the Urban Development and Housing Department in Patna, Bihar’s Chief Minister Nitish Kumar gave his in-principle approval for the Rs 14,000 crore Patna metro project! While this approval really does not amount to anything significant as far as the project’s progress goes, it does indicate that the project has his full backing to ensure it progresses smoothly through all the hoops it needs to jump through at the state level. The project’s Detailed Project Report (DPR) for 2 lines has been prepared by RITES Ltd. and will very soon be placed before the state government’s cabinet. An approval from the cabinet is what will kick-start the project.

Yes, the latest addition in India, Pune Metro, I hope construction will be started in 2017.

I expect three Indian cities will start running metro in 2017, those are Lucknow, Hyderabad and Kochi.

Indian Metro Rail News

Metro Rail: 313 kms of Metro Rail Connectivity for nine cities by 2019

Nine cities including Delhi, Noida, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Kochi, Bengaluru and Chennai are set to get additional 313 km on Metro Rail connectivity by March 2019. Till now the mass transit system is operational only on 370 kms in eight cities since the first Metro service began in Kolkata in 1984.

While most of the projects nearing completion were sanctioned during UPA, three projects in Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Lucknow were approved during Narendra Modi government. Completion of more Metro Rail projects are likely to be an issue during BJP’s election campaign. A total of 537 kms of metro sections are under under construction.
