Let SPV be formed for Bangalore Suburban Rail, tells Kharge

Bangalore/Yelahanka (YNK):  Railway Minister M. Mallikarjuna Kharge on Monday said the State government is yet to formally approach his Ministry by forming a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to introduce suburban railway service in Bangalore.

Speaking to presspersons after visiting the Rail Wheel Factory at Yelahanka here, Mr. Kharge said if the SPV is formed, the Ministry would consider participating in the project. As a matter of policy, the Railways has not taken up any new suburban train service, the Minister said.
