The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval for transfer of land for the implementation of Metro Rail Projects.

The proposal is to restrict Ministries/Departments/PSUs of the Central Government from asking for land in exchange for land required for the implementation of Metro Rail Projects. The concerned Ministry/Department/ PSU would be compensated in monetary terms for the transferred land based on the rates as per prevailing guideline values. Once a Metro Rail project has been approved by the Cabinet, all Ministries/ Departments would give operating rights on the relevant land sought by the Metro Rail Company, immediately. This would be even during consultations between the concerned Ministries pending the actual transfer of the land, so that work of the project does not suffer.

Background

This decision will help in speedier implementation of Metro Rail Projects in the country and will avoid time and cost overruns and the consequent loss to the public exchequer. Rail-based `Mass Rapid Transit System` has been accepted the world over as a major solution for most traffic and environmental pollution related problems and also for being a catalyst for economic growth of cities.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the first Outreach Session of the G7 Summit today.  

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger - Health’, focused on global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and on strengthening resilience against future pandemics. 

During the session, Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of COVID infections in India. 

He highlighted India's ‘whole of society’ approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of the government, industry and civil society.   

He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed India's willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

Prime Minister committed India's support for collective endeavours to improve global health governance. He sought the G7's support for the proposal moved at the WTO by India and South Africa, for a TRIPS waiver on COVID related technologies. 

Prime Minister Modi said that today's meeting should send out a message of "One Earth One Health" for the whole world. Calling for global unity, leadership, and solidarity to prevent future pandemics, Prime Minister emphasized the special responsibility of democratic and transparent societies in this regard. 

PM will participate in the final day of the G7 Summit tomorrow and will speak in two Sessions.
