Public Sector Undertaking, Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) has supplied approximately 55,000 tonne of steel for the Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line, according to a company statement.

SAIL has supplied TMT, structurals and plates for this project, the statement added.

The 12.64 km long section of the Magenta line (Botanical Garden to Kalkaji) inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is part of the entire 36.98 km stretch that will connect Janakpuri west to Botanical Garden.

In recent past, some of the major projects where SAIL steel has been used include Mizoram’s biggest Tuirial Hydro electric project, Gujarat’s Sardar Sarovar project, country’s longest bridge ‘Dhola-Sadiya’ in Assam, among others.

A statement from the Japanese Embassy in India said, “The Government of Japan is supporting the construction of about 116 km section out of a total of 159 km of Delhi Metro Phase 3, through the financing by Japan’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) loan, amounting to JPY 276.8 billion.”

“This section will be the first to adopt the driverless train operation system; ‘the Unattended Train Operation (UTO) mode’ based on the new signalling technology,” the statement added.
