The government of Uttar Pradesh has got detailed project reports (DPRs) of two proposed Metro corridors – Vaishali to Mohan Nagar and Noida Electronic City to Sahibabad. The DPRs have been submitted by the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) on 4 February 2020 for approval.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) prepared both DPRs after several round deliberations with GDA. GDA has also asked the government to reform the funding model of the Metro rail projects.

GDA has recommended that projects be financed in a manner that 20% of the total cost is borne by the Central government, 50 percent by the state government and the remaining 30 percent by agencies like GDA, the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation (GMC), the Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation (UPSIDC) and the Uttar Pradesh Housing Board (UPHB).

The total project cost of both corridors is valued at Rs 3,325 crore, as per the detailed project report (DPR). Out of this, Rs 1,808 crore is estimated for Vaishali-Mohan Nagar corridor and Rs 1,517 crore is estimated for Noida Electronic City-Sahibabad corridor.
