    No Update on this Project since then. Not only from TMRG, but I haven’t come across any other News Report, Tweet, Update on Social Media about this project. Seems like it has gone in Deep Freeze. Any Reasons for this? Problems with Alignment? Land Acquisition? What is holding it back when PM has announced an aggressive Deadline?


    I want to take part in the training session
