Fadnavis confirmed that the state UDD has cleared the project. “Detailed project report (DPR) has been forwarded to state cabinet for its approval,” he said.

The cabinet is likely to clear the project in its next meeting to be held on January 8. After cabinet’s nod, the DPR will be forwarded to the central government for final approval.

The UDD could clear the project as the NMC general body on December 20 approved city’s revised comprehensive mobility plan (CMP). Maha Metro sources said the state cabinet and the center will take a final decision on funds sharing pattern. “Pattern of Rs7,000 crore through loans and Rs2,000 crore each from center and state can also be finalized,” sources said.

As per sources, NMC, NIT and NMRDA have expressed helplessness to bear the share in Metro Rail phase-II. “It was discussed in Tuesday’s meeting whether NMRDA can contribute some money for phase-II.

Corridors finalized under phase-II fall under Metro region. However, NMRDA is beginning works of Metro region now and will not be able to give funds. NMC is in cash-strapped condition. NIT had contributed in various projects and is left with no money,” sources said. Under phase-I of Rs8,680 crore, NMC and NIT are bearing share of 5% each. The shares of the central and the state is 20% each.
