The Jaipur Metro Railway Corporation (JMRC) has decided to provide an insurance cover to the passengers travelling by Metro train. Good news for people is that they won’t be charged extra for the cover.

Nihal Chand Goyal, chief managing director, JMRC, said, “The corporation has decided to provide insurance cover to Metro travellers and for this, it won’t charge extra in the tickets.”

The JMRC will pay the insurance premium. For this, it will invite proposals from companies.

The JMRC decided this after a meeting with the DMRC brass in Delhi recently.

Officials said that generally in such policies, a minimal charge is added in the ticket but JMRC won’t add any extra charge in the tickets.

The corporation will also provide insurance to its employees. Under the policy, accidental and normal insurance will be provided to the JMRC employees.

Meanwhile, project director of DMRC Atul Gadgil said, “In two-three days, all work will be completed for the trial run of Metro (first phase) from Mansarovar to Shyam Nagar.”

However, the exact date for the trial has not been fixed yet.

Gadgil also said that the electrification work on only 40-50-metre track is remaining and it would be completed in next two-three days.

Locals will probably get to see the Metro running on the track on September 15. But people have to wait till next year for the Metro ride.

Officials said the trial would be conducted without passengers because for carrying passengers during the trial run, it is necessary to take prior permission from the collector and no such permission has yet been taken.

Meanwhile, the coaches of the fourth Metro train reached Mansarovar depot on Thursday morning. The coaches were dispatched from Bangalore on August 14.
