SC orders commencement of work for Phase 4 of Delhi Metro

New Delhi, Jul 12 (PTI) The Supreme Court Friday ordered implementation of the 103.94 km, Phase 4 of the Delhi metro and directed the authorities concerned to commence the construction work on the project. A bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta was told by the counsel appearing for the Delhi government that they have agreed to give a go ahead to the Phase 4 of the Delhi metro. The apex court was hearing a matter in which the Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) had recently filed a report stating that the approval for the project was held up since 2014. The EPCA report said that there was a "stalemate" in discussions between the central government and Delhi government on certain financial aspects of the project. PTI ABA MNL LLP SA
