Mumbai's elevated Rail corridors update

The railways will sign the state support agreement with Maharashtra next week for the Churchgate-Virar elevated rail corridor. The agreement will pave the way for inviting tenders before the end of the financial year. The project is based on the public-private partnership model and will be on design, build, finance, operate and transfer basis. Under the agreement, the state government will provide help on issues related to relief and rehabilitation, floor space index for commercial use of land, law and order among other things. 
Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation will also submit a proposal for the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus-Panvel elevated corridor by August. The first air-conditioned rake on Mumbai suburban rail will run on Western Railway by 2013.
