JAIPUR METRO RAIL CORPORATION (A GOVERNMENT OF RAJASTHAN UNDERTAKING)
Jaipur Municipal Region had a population of 30.73 lacs in 2011 which is projected to grow to 81.1 lacs in 2031. Jaipur Region , with its present estimated population of 4.45 million and employment of 15.55 lakh has a travel demand of 36 lakh passenger trips every day with 3.6 lakh trips performed during peak hour. With growing population and mega development plans coming up for the Pink City, the travel demand is expected to grow steeply. With the growing economy and inadequate public transport services, the passengers shall shift to private modes, which is already evident from the high vehicle ownership trends in the region. This would not only aggravate the congestion on streets but also increase the pollution. Hence, it is essential to plan and provide a Metro Rail System in Jaipur.
MISSION- JAIPUR METRO RAIL PROJECT IS FOR PROVIDING THE SAFER, GREENER, COMFORTABLE AND FASTER MASS RAPID URBAN TRANSIT SYSTEM BY WAY OF METRO RAIL IN THE CITY OF JAIPUR.
As per the DPR March, 2012, (Prepared by DMRC): Project is proposed in two Phases.

PHASE I (MANSAROVAR TO BADI CHAUPAR-11.979 KMS) (EPC MODE):
Phase-I-A (Mansarovar to Chandpole)- The Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation entered into an agreement (05.08.2010) with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for development of Phase-I-A from Mansarovar to Chandpole on ‘deposit work’ basis covering a length of 9.63 kms. The Phase-I-A from Mansarovar to Chandpole is completed and opened for commercial operation on 03.06.2015.
Phase-I-B (Chandpole to Badi Chaupar) – The civil work of Phase I-B (Chandpole to Badi Chaupar) was assigned to M/s. CEC (Taiwan). This work has been completed and opened for commercial operation on 23.0-09-2020.
Phase II (Ambabari to Sitapura -23.099 KMS)*
As on date, as per the last decision of state cabinet Government of Rajasthan has decided to develop Phase-II on PPP Mode.
In 2020, when the population of Jaipur city has likely crossed 5 million mark and PHPDT of Tonk Road would have risen to 17875, this major artery will badly require a rail-based mass transit system, i.e., Phase-II of Jaipur Metro.
(The process of reviewing the DPR of Phase-II, prepared by DMRC in 2014 is under going.)
