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.

PM lauds role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has saluted each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive on completion of 1 year of vaccine drive. The Prime Minister has lauded the role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive. He also said that India's vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19.

In response to a tweet by MyGovIndia, the Prime Minister, in a series of tweets said;

"Today we mark #1YearOfVaccineDrive.

I salute each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive.

Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

India’s approach to fighting the pandemic will always remain science based. We are also augmenting health infrastructure to ensure our fellow citizens get proper care.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
