The Delhi Metro is already walking the talk, when it comes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet scheme “Make in India”. 90 per cent of the trains under Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) are being manufactured in India, reported an English newspaper.

In the Phase III metro, out of 846 coaches ordered, only 120 are from Korea, rest are manufactured in the country. The trains made in India are also being exported to Queensland and Sydney, quoted Times of India.

H S Anand, Delhi Metro’s director said, “We have been consistently increasing the number of indigenous trains in the system. Of 1,234 coaches in Phase I and II, 36 were from Germany and 64 were from Korea.”

For the last 10 years DMRC has kept the capital cost for procurement of these coaches at a consistent level. DMRC spokesman, Anuj Dayal, said “These costs are substantially lower than the cost of Metro coaches world over.”

Mangu Singh, the DMRC head, said, “Delhi Metro’s initiative to indigenize the manufacturing of its trains and ancillary technologies is in consonance with the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the government of India.”

Three Metro coach manufacturing units have set up their base in India. These are Bombardier Transportation in Savli, Gujarat, state-owned Bharat Earth Movers Limited in Bengaluru, and Alstom, which has established a new facility at Sricity near Chennai in Tamil Nadu.
