The R5,146-crore Kochi Metro project is back on track, as Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) former managing director E Sreedharan and Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy broke ice over the recent global tender issue. If DMRC were to be handed over charge of the project, Kochi Metro will be commissioned within three years, Sreedharan said. And hence Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) has dropped its plans to invite global tenders for the project.
