A source with the delegation said that if everything goes well, work on the first Metro Railway path might start from March this year. The minister also gave assurance to make provision of Rs 1,600 crore in the union budget for the project.
“The money will be handed over the municipal corporation after its formal approval in the House,” Nath said.
