Giving a major fillip to public transport infrastructure in the NCR Delhi, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the extension of metro rail from Noida City Centre to Noida sector 62.

Addressing the press briefing here after the Cabinet meeting, Union Law and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the cost of this extension (6.675km) will be Rs 1,967 crore and the Union Government's liability will be Rs 3.40 crore on account of grant and subordinate debt.

This extension will help the people from the satellite township to reach Delhi in lesser time and there will be less vehicular traffic on roads leading to less congestion and less consumption of fossil fuel.

Today's meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
