BHOPAL (Metro Rail News): The Bhopal District administration has set into motion the plan for swift acquisition of land for Bhopal Metro rail project. It includes land under possession of 18 different government departments along with private properties. Direct allotment of land will take place for metro rail to speed up the process of land transfer according to sources.

MPMRCL will pay compensation for the acquired land, said sources. District administration officials are expected to handover detailed reports identifying obstacles. A large portion of land to be acquired is from government departments. The report will be submitted to the government. After getting the directives, removal of obstacles and land equitation would take place.
