Based on the detailed review it has been confirmed that the Indian Nationals who have been abducted in Iraq remain safe. The Govt. of India is making every effort for the situation that the Indians are caught there in Iraq, so that is resolved at the earliest. Indian Mission in Baghdad continues to assist those Indian nationals who would like to leave the region, even from areas where security is not tenuous as yet, and we keep in touch with Indian nationals in areas where security remains tenuous. The Government of India is giving the highest priority to the welfare, security and safety of Indian nationals. Following the review meetings that are being held everyday and today it has decided that any Indian National who is indigent and who desires to return but is unable to pay for his tickets, will be assisted through the Indian Community Welfare Fund (ICWF) in Iraq by our mission there. 

The Ministry of Overseas Indian affairs has decided to stop granting emigration clearances for Iraq for a period of one month or till the situation demands starting last night. This was done noticing that the flow of traffic was continuing even though there was an advisory already issued in this regard not to travel to Iraq. 

Indian officials are working with Iraqi authorities that have a visa regime which basically specifies that who comes in from a port of entry also go back from the same port of entry, this has caused some concern to those of our nationals who want to leave from the nearest port of exit or from land boundary, the matter has been taken up with Iraqi foreign ministry officials who are amenable and the issue is likely to be sorted out in coming days. All the Indian missions in the region of all the bordering countries have been informed that in case Indian people need any assistance in the matter like documentations, if they want to cross by land through these countries may be assisted fully. 

From the verified information available with the External Affairs Ministry from the conflict zone in Iraq, 16 Indian national have been moved out and brought to Baghdad for flying out of Iraq. Eight workers were moved out from Baiji, Iraq and another 8 Indian workers of LANCO project in Anbar. As far as the 46 Nurses caught in the conflict zone, we are in constant touch with them and the security situation in the area is such that it has been said to be quiet with no gunfire and nobody has intruded in the Hospital they are in. They have access to facilities like Power, water, food, communication etc. in the hospital.

The Prime Minister flagged off the Ahmedabad Metro Rail project and took a metro ride from Kalupur station to Doordarshan Kendra metro station today.

On the second day of his Gujarat visit, the Prime Minister waved the green flag for the Ahmedabad Metro Rail Project. The Prime Minister arrived at Kalupur Station after taking a ride in the brand new Vande Bharat Express 2.0 from Gandhinagar Station.

During the ride in the Metro, the Prime Minister travelled with students, sportspersons and common commuters. He interacted with them. Many of them took his autograph.

The Ahmedabad Metro Rail Project is a monumental boost to multimodal infrastructure connectivity. Phase-I of the Ahmedabad Metro project comprises about 32 km of the East-West corridor from Apparel Park to Thaltej and the North-South corridor between Motera to Gyaspur. The Thaltej-Vastral route in the East-West corridor has 17 stations. This corridor also has a 6.6 km underground section with four stations. The 19 km North-South corridor that connects Gyaspur to Motera Stadium has 15 stations. The entire Phase 1 project is built at a cost of more than ₹12,900 crores.

Ahmedabad Metro is a massive state of art infrastructure project involving underground tunnels, viaducts & bridges, elevated and underground station buildings, ballastless rail tracks and driverless train operation compliant rolling stock etc. The metro train set is equipped with an energy-efficient propulsion system which can save about 30-35% of energy consumption. The train has a state of art suspension system providing a very smooth riding experience to passengers.
