The Maharashtra Government stated about the completion of the Colaba-SEEPZ Mumbai Metro 3 project by the end of this year, by December-end. This crucial project’s first phase is between SEEPZ (Santacruz Electronics Export Processing Zone) and Bandra Kurla Complex. According to a report by Sarkaritel, this phase will be commissioned by September, followed by completing the overall work by the end of this year.

This is not the first time that the concerned authorities and departments shared a specified timeline for completing the entire Colaba-SEEPZ Mumbai Metro 3 project. Previously, this construction was scheduled to be finished by September 2024, according to a report by Moneycontrol. However, the plans changed later. And now, the Maharashtra Government shared its decision to complete it by the end of December 2024.

An important decision of the cabinet meeting was the approval to provide ₹1,163 crore from the Maharashtra government’s share to the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation rather than the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority. The state Cabinet discussed a ₹22,250 crore loan to be taken from HUDCO. This hefty loan’s purpose is to acquire land for the key Virar-Alibaug Multimodal Corridor in Mumbai.
