Mumbai’s Metro coaches to be ‘Made in India’

The Metro coaches of the three upcoming Metro corridors will be ‘Made in India.’ Indian firm Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML) won the contract to manufacture 63 driverless Metro trains of six coaches each by defeating other firms from China, Germany, France, and Korea.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) on Saturday, announced that Metro trains for the three Metro corridors — Dahisar-DN Nagar Metro-2A, DN Nagar-Mandale Metro-2B, and Dahisar East-Andheri East Metro-7 — will be manufactured in India. The appointment of BEML can be seen as a step towards the government’s ‘Make In India’ initiative.
