    What about gurgaon metro? Any progress? It’s been a decade since any metro extension in the city. While noida metro is growing at faster rate keeping in mind the future needs. With multiple lines and extensions planned to be built the gurgaon metro plans seems to only exist on paper for so many years. Why the govt. is not keen on expanding the network there? It’s a crucial part of Delhi NCR.

      No constructive progress on it. This behavior of the Haryana government is across party lines. It’s indeed quite strange.

        Yes, it is indeed shocking the unwillingness to provide good public transportation to one of the fastest growing city of the country.
