    TMRG, did u heard that Kanpur Metro will be Inagurate on 28th December. But how is it possible when RDSO and CMRS Trial Runs are not initiated. Please tell us. It’s Urgent

    • TMRG says:

      CMRS inspection is scheduled 20-22. Government institutes have an uncanny way to speed things up for highly visible projects. Line may go live for operations at a later date.

      • Anurag says:
