Ministry of Defence lifts the block on Kolkata's Joka-Esplanade Metro project

    Ansh Chaturvedi

    Finally tunnelling below Maidan and Mominpur station can start as the Ministry of Defence which owns the plots allows objections.

    Normally an amount has to be paid as a rent to the Defence but because this is underground, MOD could not get any rent. The tunnel construction had been blocked for many years.
