According To The Sources , Government of India seems to be not interested in financing Vijayawada Metro on the grounds of the city having low population and a low ridership.
Till Today, There is No scientific study On Vijayawada’s traffic that recommends metro rail as the only solution for traffic problems.
Central Government Thinks that the Vijayawada will not grow rapidly and the elevated metro project will become a huge financial disaster and a white elephant on the city in particular and the people of AP in general.
So , That’s Why The tenders called by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), were suspended without specifying any reason. This is the second time that the tenders have been called off since inception .
If Vijayawada Metro Project Cancelled , Andhra Pradesh is again looked down by the central government after back tracking on several promises already.
