THE MINISTER OF STATE (INDEPENDENT CHARGE) 
OF THE MINISTRY OF HOUSING AND URBAN AFFAIRS 
(SHRI HARDEEP SINGH PURI) 

(a) & (b) The details of metro rail projects under implementation in various states are given in Annexure. 

(c) to (e) Urban transport is an integral part of urban development which is a state subject. Respective state governments are, therefore, responsible for initiating and developing urban transport infrastructure, including metro rail projects in cities or urban agglomerates. The Central Government considers financial assistance for metro rail proposals, on the basis of the feasibility of the proposal and availability of resources, as and when posed by the concerned state governments. Government of India has issued the Metro Rail Policy, 2017 in August 2017, which focuses on systematic planning and implementation of metro rail systems in a more comprehensive and sustainable manner. The policy aims at ascertaining and enhancing the feasibility of metro rail projects from economic, social and environmental perspective. The policy is a guide to state governments for preparing comprehensive proposals for metro rail projects. The policy also enables innovative financing through Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and Value Capture Finance (VCF) and encourages Public Private Partnership for implementation of the metro rail projects to leverage both public and private resources, expertise and entrepreneurship.
