The Unfolding Saga of Metro Rail

9 cities in India already have operational metro rail lines and more than a dozen others have submitted plans for getting a metro. Metro projects are being promoted in India as some sort of eco-friendly marriage between India’s urbanization and modernization. This project critically reviews the impact of metro rail system on everyday mobility and examines how these mega projects provide a cover to transfer and appropriate the public resources for corporate interests. Delhi and Lucknow are the case study cities.
