PM Narendra Modi inaugurates projects worth Rs.38000 crore

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated and laid foundation stones of a string of projects worth more than Rs 38,000 crore aimed at developing infrastructure, easing urban travel, and strengthening healthcare during his visit to Mumbai.

The PM is going to dedicate to the nation the Mumbai Metro Rail Lines 2A and 7, worth around Rs 12,600 crore.

The foundation stones for seven sewage treatment plants, a road concretisation project, and redevelopment of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus would also be laid at a function to be held on the MMRDA grounds in the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC).

Mumbai Metro Rail:

The foundation stones of Metro Rail lines 2A and 7 had been laid by PM Modi in 2015.

The 18.6 km-long Mumbai Metro Rail line 2A is built to connect suburban Dahisar (East) with the 16.5 km-long DN Nagar (yellow line) while the metro line 7 connects Andheri (East) with Dahisar (East).

The prime minister is going to launch MUMBAI 1 Mobile App and National Common Mobility Card (Mumbai 1) which can be utilized at the entry gates of Metro stations to facilitate ease of travel.

It backs digital payment to buy tickets through UPI.

The mobility card would initially be used in Metro corridors and can be used to other modes of mass public transit including local trains and buses as well.

Commuters would not be required to carry multiple cards or cash. The NCMC card will be used as quick, contact-less digital transactions, easing the process with a seamless experience.

Cost of sewage treatment plants:

The seven sewage treatment plants, PM Modi laid the foundation stone, will be built at a cost of around Rs 17,200 crore.

These plants will be established in suburban Malad, Bhandup, Versova, Ghatkopar, Bandra, Dharavi and Worli.

Redevelopment of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj terminus:

The redevelopment of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in south Mumbai is another important project for which the foundation stone will be laid.

This project is proposed at decongesting the southern heritage node of the terminus, augmentation of facilities, better multi-modal integration and conserving and restoring the world-famous iconic structure to its past glory.
