Set up sister firm for consultancy: MoUD to Delhi Metro
The DMRC has also been awarded the work of `Management Consulting Services’ for the first phase of the 15.7-km Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit System in Indonesia. Officials also claim that the DMRC is rendering business consultancy to bag similar projects in various upcoming Metro projects of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Israel.
“The objective is to provide consultancy services without infringing in the main functioning of Delhi Metro. The sister company of the DMRC will also be registered under Companies Act 1956. The modalities of setting up a subsidiary firm are being worked out,” the official said.
The DMRC has a business development department, which is in charge of the consultancy services of the corporation. Among the DMRC’s under-construction Metro projects in the capital is the Phase III Metro, which aims to connect two major arterial roads — Ring Road and Outer Ring Road. The project will also take the Metro to Faridabad in Haryana. Further extensions of the corridor, to connect it with Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and the Delhi Monorail have also been planned.
