The Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs, Shri Hardeep Singh Puri in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today informed that the Urban transport, which is an integral part of urban development, is a state subject. Hence, respective State Governments are responsible for initiating, developing and funding urban transport infrastructure including metro rail projects. As per Metro Rail Policy-2017, the Central Government considers financial assistance for such projects in cities or urban agglomerates, based on feasibility of the proposal and availability of resources, as and when posed by the concerned State/Union Territory (UT) Government. Government of Gujarat has not submitted any new metro rail proposal for central financial assistance.
