The consortium went on to establish a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) company called Pune IT City Metro Rail Limited on March 14, 2019 to execute the line.

In September 2019, PMRDA a signed a 35-year concession agreement with Pune IT City Metro Rail Limited to develop the line with a deadline of March 2023.
