CII in association with DMRC organise ‘National Conference on Green Metro Systems’ on 12 June 2015 at New Delhi

Hyderabad/New Delhi: India is experiencing phenomenal growth in urban population in the last few decades. As a result, cities are witnessing tremendous growth in vehicular growth and the share of private modes of transport such as two-wheelers and four-wheelers increasing exponentially.

To increase the share of public transport, many Indian cities are developing world-class Rail based Mass Rapid Transit Systems (MRTS).
