Delhi technology for Kochi Metro

Technical experts from the Japan International Corporation Agency’s (JICA) fact-finding team have given their nod for the technology that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) proposes to use for the Kochi Metro Rail project, according to DMRC’s Principal Adviser E. Sreedharan.
This includes the technology for trains and the signal system. ‘‘They are already in the know of the technology that we adopted for the Delhi Metro project,” he said here on Thursday after attending a meeting of the visiting JICA team and officials of Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL). The DMRC had earlier said that it would adopt the latest fourth-generation technology for the Kochi project.
Mr. Sreedharan said that a few doubts and apprehensions that the JICA team had about the project were cleared following Thursday’s discussions.
