New Delhi: PPP (Public-Private Partnership) is the standard model and the Centre supports it, Union housing and urban affairs minister Hardeep Singh Puri said, after the Delhi Metro sent a proposal to the AAP and the Union Government asking them to involve private entities for running trains under its phase-4 project.

  • In January, the DMRC had written to both the Centre and the Arvind Kejriwal Government in Delhi, seeking approval for allowing private players to run trains in at least 3 of the 6 proposed corridors.
  • Both the Centre & the Delhi government have a 50% stake in the DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation).

PPP Model-

  • Puri said,”PPP model is a national model. There is no other model.”
  • Asked whether the central government would support this model in the Delhi Metro phase-4, the he said, “Why not. The Centre is doing so everywhere. We had also implemented PPP model in Hyderabad (metro) too.”
