The state budget has given a major push to infrastructure projects in the state capital as the government moved a step ahead to launch the Jaipur Metro phase-II project and set up the India International Centre, which was ignored by the previous BJP regime.
In his budget speech, chief minister Ashok Gehlot announced that the state would prepare a revised detailed project report (DPR) for the Rs 13,000-crore Jaipur Metro-II project proposed between Ambabari and Sitapura.
The state government has appointed the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for preparing a revised DPR. The project estimates that 4,05,065 passengers will use the metro in 2026 if the project is commissioned.
“The Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC)had prepared its first DPR in 2011 during Congress government’s tenure. However, nothing much was done to launch the project after the change in the regime as the project was capital intensive.
Now, the project is expected to be launched at state’s expenditure with Centre’s support,” a Metro official said.
Other than the Metro, the CM also allocated Rs 20 crore for the India International Centre in Jaipur. This project will be similar to the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi.
