The interaction, which is aimed at giving information and taking suggestions from the public about the Metro Rail, was organised by Bharat Vikas Parishad along with Maharashtra Education Society.

Limaye said, “Metro operations will start by 2021 and metro will not only ease the transport of the commuters but also reduce vehicular population as it is connected to main junctions of the city,” he said, adding that price of travelling in Metro will be similar to that of public transport. 

Ramesh Rao, a former member of a committee formed by the government for sorting Pune metro issues raised on underground or elevated metro alignment also spoke on MahaMetro.
