The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said on Friday it will assist Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) in operating and maintaining the 29.7-km-long Noida-Greater Noida Metro corridor.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) to this effect was signed between the two entities on Friday.
The DMRC will be providing the assistance to the NMRC until the latter develops the expertise to operate and maintain the corridor itself.
“The assistance would be rendered during the pre-commercial operation period and three years post commercial operation period of the NMRC. The agreement may be extended with mutual consent,” said a statement from the DMRC.
The DMRC will help the NMRC hire people during its pre-commercial operation period.
The construction work of Noida-Greater Noida corridor is already being executed by the DMRC as the project management consultant.
The DMRC has been involved in planning, consultancy or construction of almost all Metro rail projects across the country, including 9.25-km-long Jaipur Metro corridor which became operational in June 2015.
