IT & Municipal Administration Minister K T Rama Rao today said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would launch the much-awaited Hyderabad Metro Rail at Miyapur metro station on November 28 at 2:15 pm.

The metro project, a first-of-its-kind in the world in the PPP model and the biggest in India, will be opened for the public on November 29 at 6 pm. The first phase will cover 30 km, from Nagole to Miyapur.

Addressing the media at Nagole metro rail station after a trial run with ministers Padma Rao Goud and Mahender Reddy, MP Malla Reddy, Mayor Rammohan, metro rail MD N V S Reddy and officials, KTR said, "It is a matter of pride to be able to launch the first phase of the metro rail project itself on a 30 km stretch. We all need to keep it clean."

KTR announced the pricing for the metro rail travel on the occasion - the lowest ticket price, for a 0-2 km travel, will be Rs. 12, and the highest ticket price, for 26-30 km, will be Rs. 60.

KTR also launched the T Sawari and Multi Purpose Smart Cards, and the Naa Metro Swachh Metro poster. He said that the smart cards would be useful for multi-modal transport, with the T Sawari Cards being usable in buses, autos and cabs in the city. A mobile App for T Sawari would be launched by the Prime Minister at the inauguration, he said.

KTR said that initially 57 trains would be available, and each train, with three coaches, would be able to transport 1,000 passengers from 6am to 10pm. There were plans to add three more coaches to transport 2,000 passengers at a time, he said. After an experimental period of three to four months, the timings would be revised after understanding the demand.

Parking facility was being made available at 24 metro rail stations for two-wheeler, 3-wheeler and 4-wheeler parking, he said. Based on requirement, sky walks at some metro stations, foot over bridges (FOBs) at others, and cycle stations would be made available, he said.
