This chapter discusses the development of the metro rail system in Hyderabad. It details the various phases of the project from proposal to implementation. The project demonstrates that is it only when the government takes firm steps to move the metro process forward will the city get its mass transit system. As far as project planning was concerned, the Hyderabad Metro project conformed to most of the requirements except for having clear-cut criteria of prioritization in implementation.
