Panaji: The Goa Government planning to bring metro rail project in Goa. The plan was recently discussed with Hardeep Singh Puri, Union minister of state with independent charge in the ministry of housing and urban affairs. He was in the state to review various projects under the flagship scheme of the Centre, including Smart City, AMRUT, among others.

According to Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, “the Union Government has assured financial assistance in case the state government decides to opt for a metro rail project in Goa.”

He further said that the state government has appointed a consultant to conduct a comprehensive study of the transport system in the state and has asked the consultant to provide solutions on the prevailing transport scenario. The consultant will study the transport system and analyse the collated data before making final recommendations to the state government.

“A comprehensive mobility plan is usually drawn up for cities, but Goa is a unique exception as the comprehensive mobility plan is being undertaken for the entire state,” an state government official said.

He further said that it would take around six months for completing the final report, but interim reports will be submitted to the government at regular intervals.

The study on the transport system is being partially funded by the Centre in line with other metro rail projects in the Country.
