This chapter discusses the development of the metro rail system in Mumbai. It details the various phases of the project from proposal to implementation. The project has been conceived in the right way by first preparing a master plan and then prioritizing the phases. The need for the project comes out very clearly and an investment decision was taken based on a proper appreciation of the resource scenario. The step-by-step process of project planning was followed meticulously as far as identification and project decision were concerned. While metro projects in other cities such as Kolkata, Delhi, Bangalore, and Chennai were taken up through direct government initiatives and project financing was dependent on government initiatives, in Mumbai it was always felt that the potential for high ridership in this mega city would naturally justify private participation.
