VIJAYAWADA (Metro Rail News): On Monday the State govt-issued an order renaming the Amaravati Metro Rail Co (AMRC) as Andhra Pradesh Metro Rail Co Ltd (APMRC).
It would implement metro rail projects in the State. After creating 2 Special Purpose Vehicles for Visakhapatnam Metro Project & Vijayawada Metro Project in August 2014, then govt changed the SPV for Vijayawada Metro Project as AMRC in Sept 2015.
However, the Managing Director of AMRC suggested that it might be appropriate to change the name AMRC as APMRC so as to implement the Metro Projects in other parts of the State. Hence, the govt declared the order accordingly.
