Bihar moved a step
closer to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's dream of a Metro train service in Patna
with the state cabinet Tuesday approving the proposal to prepare a detailed
project report (DPR).
Cabinet Secretary Brajesh Mehrotra told media persons here that state cabinet
has selected Rail India Technical and Economic Service (RITES) for the purpose.
"RITES will prepare DPR for the Metro rail in Patna," he said.
Earlier, the state government had said that Metro rail would be a reality in
Patna by 2016. The project is set to cover a distance of 40 km and is estimated
to cost Rs.8,000 crore.
