The process of necessary checks and trial runs will take around one-and-a-half month, after which the train of four coaches will be ready for public.

Ten train sets of four coaches each are to be commissioned and all the trains will arrive from Bangalore by October.

Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) chief managing director, NC Goel claimed that this is the first time when coaches for a metro train are being indigenously manufactured. In the past, Metro coaches have been manufactured with foreign collaboration.

One rake (line of wagons) of Metro train will be tested at the stabling yard, which is under construction. The rake will undergo several safety tests by technical experts to ensure the system is foolproof.

In case the driver fails to respond to warnings, the system will apply brakes on its own. The system is reliable as the display time is fixed in the control room of different trains. If one train gets delayed, the time in another automatically gets adjusted.

The estimated cost to construct the line from Mansarovar to Chandpole is Rs 2,000 crore. If it is extended to Badi Chaupar, the cost will go up to around Rs 3,149 crore. In pic: Metro coach at Mansarovar metro depot.

Officials said the 2.4 km corridor from Badi Chaupar to Chandpole will be constructed underground in the Walled City area. Under Phase-I (B) of the project, an underground tunnel would be dug from Chandpole to Badi Chaupar through the congested areas of the old city.
