Central government gave the green signal to the metro rail project in Vijayawada despite not fulfilling the criteria of having stipulated population of more than 20 lakh. Centre gave its nod to the metro rail project as per the AP Reorganisation Act. Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said that metro rail would commence its operations by 2018 if everything goes according to plan. Venkaiah Naidu said that Centre would also look into metro rail project in Visakhapatnam once DPR is submitted and AP cabinet gives its nod.
