Noida: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will assist Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) in operating and maintaining the 29.7-km-long Noida-Greater Noida Metro corridor. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) to this effect was signed between the two entities on Friday. The construction work of Noida-Greater Noida corridor is already being executed by the DMRC.
The DMRC will be providing assistance to the NMRC until the later develops the expertise to operate and maintain the corridor itself. “The assistance would be rendered during the pre-commercial operation period and three years post-commercial operation period of the NMRC. The agreement may be extended with mutual consent,” a statement from the DMRC said. The construction work of the 30-km-long corridor is already being executed by DMRC on behalf of NMRC. The structural work on the corridor, that will have 21 stations, is expected to be completed by March 2017. The DMRC has been involved in planning or construction of almost all Metro rail projects across the country.
