    Delhi clears three more Metro-rail corridors
    In a move to fast track DMRC's Phase-IV project, the Delhi government has cleared three of the six proposed corridors including Janakpuri West-R K Ashram (28.92 km), Mukundpur-Maujpur (12.54 km) and Lajpat Nagar-Saket G Block (7.96 km). These lines will touch areas, including Burari, Yamuna Vihar, Paschim Vihar, Rohini East, Mukarba Chowk and Andrews Ganj, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said. In this connection, the finance department has given the go-ahead and an interim report has been submitted; it will now come to the Cabinet for clearance. A committee is looking into the financial aspect of the other three corridors, deemed ― financially unviable by the Delhi government. The DMRC had written to the government in January, seeking approval for three lines under the project, categorizing them as ―priority corridors. Of these, two have been approved by the finance department. The Lajpat Nagar-Saket G Block line has also been cleared, despite the Metro not pressing for it. The other three — Rithala-Narela (21.73km), Tughlakabad-Terminal 1 (22 km) and Inderlok-Indraprastha (12.58km) — have been identified as ― financially unviable‖ by the state government, as their operation may result in negative cash flow, he added.
