NEW DELHI: After years of receiving technical knowhow from abroad, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is finally graduating to building Metros for others. Earlier this week, it inked a deal with Bangladesh government in which it will be the project consultant and help build the Dhaka Metro.

1It’s the first international project in which DMRC is providing the entire technological and logistical base in an international project.

“The assignment is important as it will establish Delhi Metro as a consulting agency for international Metro projects,” Delhi Metro spokesperson Anuj Dayal said. Delhi Metro is also lending a helping hand in Indonesia where it is providing support in operations, maintenance and security for the Jakarta Metro project as management consultant. However, in the Dhaka project, Delhi Metro—as part of a consortium—will be undertaking the full project consultation. More info
