The first phase (Phase 1A) of Jaipur Metro will likely become operational by July this year. The first phase, which is being executed on EPC basis, consists of 9.2m of elevated section with eight stations and 0.4km of underground section with one station. The project is being implemented by the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (JMRC) which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rajasthan state government. The detailed project report (DPR) for the project was prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) which is developing Phase IA on a deposit work basis. DMRC has completed 60% of the civil work for the project. Electrical work on the Receiving Sub Station (RSS) and Over Head Electrification (OHE) is in progress. Work orders for Rolling Stock, Signalling & Telecommunication systems and Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) have been awarded. Trial runs of the metro will be carried out in April this year by the Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), a research body of the ministry of railways. The trial runs will check train performance under varying loads and speeds. The trials will also test the lateral and vertical acceleration at different locations, a crucial factor keeping in view the sharp 120 metre radius curve of the tracks in the first phase.
