Raipur Metrolite – Information, Route Map, Fares, Tenders & Updates

Menu: News & Construction Updates | Metrolite Overview

Raipur Light Metro or Metrolite is a light rail transit (LRT) system proposed to be built in Raipur, Chhattisgarh by the state’s Urban Administration and Development.

  • Raipur Metrolite Deadline: To be Determined
  • My Completion Estimate: 2028 (no sooner, if approved by state and central governments in 2023)

A light rail has been in the works since 2019 when the state government signed a MoU with Nuam Technopreneur Pvt Ltd – an unknown firm – to develop a route connecting Shastri Chowk and Tatibandh. The firm had proposed to bear the project’s complete cost and operate modern battery-operated trains with a capacity of 1068 passengers for a period of 30 years. That project never materialized.

In February 2021, India’s Union Housing and Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri asked the Chhattisgarh state government to prepare and submit a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for funding consideration.
