BEML Ltd, a defence PSU, has delivered the first intermediate metro coach (car) unit to Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL).

The intermediate car would be integrated with the existing three-car train sets to double the present passenger carrying capacity of the Bengaluru’s metro.

The deliveries of the intermediate car units are scheduled to commence from June 2018 as per the contract conditions. However, keeping the increased public demand in mind, BEML had expedited efforts to advance the deliveries and it successfully delivered the first coach to BMRCL.

BEML, CMD, D K Hota, said “BEML is committed to offering world class services to metro corporations, thereby reducing the urban congestion and to successfully realise the Make in India policy of the government.”

BEML started manufacturing and supplying metro cars in 2002. Since then, it made significant strides and supplied to various Metro Rail Corporations across the country like Delhi Metro, Bangalore Metro, Jaipur Metro numbering more than 1300 metro coaches so far.

BEML now look forward to foray into manufacture of high speed trains in near future.
