Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday re- inaugurated the commercial operation of the Rapid Metro Phase-2, which was inaugurated by IL&FS Rail Ltd. CEO Rajiv Banga on March 31. “Tuesday’s inauguration was a formal one, though train service on the Rapid Metro Phase 2 was available to commuters after the inauguration by Banga,” Rapid Metro’s spokeswoman Gunjan told IANS.
The Haryana Urban Development Agency is the state organisation involved in the project on the Public-Private Participation model.
