CRRC to make coaches in Mihan for Nagpur Metro Rail



China’s CRRC to make coaches in MIHAN for Nagpur Metro rail. The Maharashtra government and the CRRC today signed an MoU for setting up a manufacturing facility.

Nagpur: The China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), a Chinese government company, will set up its manufacturing unit in the Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN) and produce rolling stock for Nagpur Metro Rail, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said today.
CRRC will make investment to the tune of Rs 1,500 crore to set up the manufacturing unit in MIHAN, which will generate employment opportunities for 5,000 people, he said here.

The Maharashtra government and the CRRC today signed an MoU for setting up a manufacturing facility in MIHAN. During the event, Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (NMRCL) also handed over a letter of intent to the Chinese company seeking the supply of the rolling stock.

“It is a happy occasion for Nagpur and the Nagpur Metro Rail that the Chinese company will be here to build and supply coaches,” Fadnavis said.

“A pre-condition was set before the Chinese company that they can supply coaches to the Nagpur Metro Rail, provided they manufacture them in MIHAN, which they agreed,” the Chief Minister said.

The MoU was signed by Maharashtra Development Commissioner (Industries) Vijay Singhal and CRRC DGM (Overseas Business) Sau Chuanayi for the manufacturing unit in MIHAN, whereas the NMRCL GM (Rolling Stock) Janak Garg and CRR Director International Business System for Asia and North America, Chain Chunting, signed a deal for the supply of coaches.

Union Minister for Transport and Shipping Nitin Gadkari was also present.

On the occasion, Fadnavis also announced that the NMRCL will be given the work of Pune Metro Rail.

“The state government has decided to entrust the responsibility of executing the Pune Mahametro Rail project to NMRCL. The demand in fact came from the people of Pune,” he said.

Work on the Nagpur Metro, which is on fast track, will be completed by 2018, he added.

Talking about Mumbai’s transport plans, Fadnavis said the state will introduce a common ticket for all the available modes of transport, including suburban railways, Metro Rail and Monorail, besides local bus services.

“One can travel from any place to anywhere and reach within one hour,” he said.

In a veiled attack on the previous governments, he said as a result of the planning in the last 60 years, only about 70 lakh people can use suburban rail services in Mumbai presently.

“But our government will enhance the capacity to 80 lakh, which we will do in just two years as against the previous 60 years of rule,” the Chief Minister said.
On the occasion, Gadkari complimented Nagpur Metro

Rail for speedy work and described it as the “fastest growing” metro service in the country.

NMRCL Managing Director Brajesh Dixit said 69 coaches will be required for running the Metro on two routes in four directions.

“The coaches will have wide glass screens, unlike the underground Metro that has small glass windows,” he said.
