Seven firms have evinced interest by submitting tenders to construct the Agra Metro Phase-I (AGCC-02) underground portion between the RBS College Ramp and the Taj Mahal Ramp after the Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRCL) opened technical bids. This 7.93 km package from chainage 3630 to 11564.485 contains two tunnels connecting Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Jama Masjid, SN Medical College, Agra College, Raja ki Mandi and RBS College.
