The Agra Smart City Limited has issued NOC with a few terms and conditions to carry out the construction work in the city. The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) will have to take responsibility and repair the damages which it may incur on the smart city project works during the construction of the Agra metro rail project.
KB Singh, deputy chief executive officer of Agra Smart City Limited, said,
Agra metro project is a significant scheme for the development of the city. Therefore, No Objection Certificate (NOC) has been provided with a few terms and conditions to ensure work done under the smart city projects are not affected.
The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has also managed to take approval for the implementation of the Agra metro rail project from the municipal corporation and public works department (PWD). However, the Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ) authority, Ministry of Environment and the Supreme Court of India have not yet given their clearance.
Agra Metro will have two metro corridors which will pass through the heart of the city and will connect prominent tourist places including Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, and Sikandra as well as ISBT, Raja Ki Mandi Railway Station, Medical College, Agra Cant Railway Station, Collectorate, Sanjay Place and surrounding densely populated residential areas.
