I am not sure. I guess India could not afford the full cost. The Japanese bank owns 51%. Because of money they gave.

Japanese prime minister



Info on the Japanese work

Visit of Japanese Prime Minister

The Prime Minister of Japan, His Excellency Junichiro Koizumi visited the Central Secretariat Underground Metro Station on 29th April, 2005 (Friday). Central Secretariat Station is a part of Line-II of the Delhi Metro Project which is being opened in June this year. The Prime Minister of Japan described the Metro Project as a symbol of Indo- Japanese Cooperation and praised the safe construction techniques and practices adopted by the Delhi Metro Rail Project during construction of the Project. The Prime Minister also appreciated the quick progress achieved by the DMRC in implementation of Phase I of the Project and the good quality of the construction. Mr. E. Sreedharan, Managing Director/ DMRC welcomed the Prime Minister of Japan at the Central Secretariat Metro Station and explained the details of the Metro Project to the Prime Minister. He also explained that the Metro Project has become a reality with the help of the assistance provided by the Japan Bank for International Corporation (JBIC), which is funding 64% of the Project cost of Phase I. The total cost for Phase I of the Delhi Metro Project is Rs. 10,571/- Crores. He also said that all the preliminary studies required for Phase II of the Project have been completed and Government approval for the same is expected soon. The DMRC hopes to start actual work for Phase II by September this year and has made a request to the Japanese Government for financial assistance on the same pattern as provided by them for Phase I

By funding, its more of providing capital for a business investment, which they will make a profit on when they get it back. Not aid money.

Besides, for the next round of funding, the Japanese have setforth conditions where a partof the project must be executed by Japanese firms. Classical Japanese style of doing business. And to be fair, most developed countries use this tactics to further the interest of their dwindling economies. In this instance, the Indians have rejected the Japanese proposal, so let's see where this finally ends.

Wasn't the Cairo Metro financed by Japan too, or was that just France and Japan designed?

This is not a rare topic especially. Japanese construction companies have built subways worldwide.
