Kolkata: On Tuesday, Metro Railway Kolkata carried out trial runs of two Integral Coach Factory (ICF) rakes between Noapara and Esplanade. “It may take some time for these rakes to be pressed into commercial services. They will have to undergo several more trials for our officials to be totally satisfied with their safety. Metro Railway general manager Ajay Vijayvargiya has made it very clear that there shall be no compromise on safety,” Metro Railway CPRO Indrani Banerjee said.
