JAIPUR (Metro Rail News): Ajitabh Sharma, 1996 batch IAS officer, has been appointed as the new Managing Director of Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (JMRC).

Previously, Ajitabh Sharma was posted as Principal Secretary of Mines & Petroleum Dept and IT& Communication, Government of Rajasthan.

Recently, in a major reshuffle of bureaucratic officers, Rajasthan Government transferred 67 IAS officers including collectors in 7 districts. However, as per media reports, Ajitabh Sharma is not happy with the State Government and has applied for central posting on deputation basis.

Jaipur Metro is operating on huge losses with low ridership and the situation is further worsened as a result of Covid-19.

At present, Jaipur Metro is operational on a route of 11.97 km (Pink Line) from Mansarovar to Badi Chaupar with 11 stations under Phase-1 and Phase-1B.

Under Phase-1C, Pink Line will be extended by 2.85 km from Badi Chaupar to Transport Nagar with 3 stations. Once constructed, the estimated ridership for the entire stretch i.e. from Mansarovar to Transport Nagar, will be over 1.38 lakh till 2031.

Last Month, JMRC also finalised the revised detailed project report of Jaipur Metro corridor Phase-2. A total of 23.5 KM metro rail network has been planned between India Gate (Sitapura) and Ambabari with 21 elevated stations at the estimated cost of Rs. 4,546 Crore.

JMRC decided to not construct any underground tunnels as it would increase the cost of the project. JMRC has also invited invitations and suggestions from the public.
