    The metro rail system introduced in major Indian cities in recent years has resulted in significant improvements in the country's transportation infrastructure and intra-city connectivity. This first-of-its-kind study maps the story of India's largest mass rapid transit system and uses data, analysis, and first-hand information to provide a comprehensive and authentic analysis of the urban transport scenario in Indian cities. Covering metro projects proposed and undertaken across the major Indian cities of Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, and Mumbai, among others, this volume focuses on the complexities of project planning.
