Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to take stock of the Bangalore Metro Rail project, via video conference, on Wednesday afternoon.

In a new initiative to keep track of centrally sponsored schemes, Modi has decided to host a video conferencing session with chief secretaries across the country. The video conferencing will be conducted every fourth Wednesday of the month. It will happen along with the launch of portal Pragati, a public grievances web-interface.

According to sources, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has been asked to provide reasons for the delay in completion of the project. It is said that four prominent reasons are being cited by BMRCL, which include fund crunch of contractors and litigations. More info
