The Rs 2,593-crore mass transit project in Pune, modelled on theDelhi Metro Rail Corporation, will get contributions from the Centre and will be funded by the Pune Municipal Corporation and the state government.
The official said that 64.536 billion Japanese Yen have been availed so far for metro projects in Indian cities. These funds are released through the Union urban development department.
