The existing suburban rail system is under extreme pressure and role of the bus system is limited for providing feeder services to suburban railways. There are constraints to expand the road and rail network capacity. Many pockets in Island city & suburbs are not served by rail based mass transport system. Mumbai Metro Master Plan has been undertaken to provide a rail based mass transit facility to people residing in the areas that are not connected by existing Suburban Rail System so as to enable them to reach the stations within the distances of ½ to 1 k.m. Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) appointed M/s. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) (who was assisted by TATA Consultancy Services (TCS) and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mumbai) in May, 2003 to prepare the Master Plan for Mumbai Metro and Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the priority corridors. The Master Plan for Mumbai Metro along with phased implementation was approved by the Authority of MMRDA, in its meeting, held on 28th May, 2004. The Master Plan includes 9 corridors covering a length of 146.5 km, out of which 32.5 km is underground and rest elevated. A public hearing was conducted on 22nd January, 2004 for opinions, suggestions and comments on the Master Plan.
While deciding the Metro Implementation strategy and preparing the DPRs, the Master Plan has been partly modified.
List of Revised Master Plan corridors proposed for implementation is as below :
Sr. No. Corridor Length (Km)





Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ (Andheri)






Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road-SEEPZ-Kanjurmarg


Andheri (East)-Dahisar (East)


Sewri- Prabhadevi



* Note : DPR of 46 k.m. long High Speed Metro Corridor from Andheri (East) upto Mankhurd via Ghatkopar is completed (extendable upto Panvel), to ensure connectivity between Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and Navi Mumbai International Airport.
Metro corridors connect important railway stations like Churchgate, Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai Central, International and Domestic Airports and major business hubs. These corridors will have interchange facilities with Suburban Stations and connecting neighbouring areas of Thane, Navi Mumbai, Vasai, Virar etc. After implementation of Mumbai Metro Master Plan, approximately 70 lakh commuters are expected to get benefit which in turn will substantially reduce the traffic on roads and congestion in suburban railways.
Out of the above Master Plan Corridors, only 11.4 km of Metro Line between-Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar has become operational and Metro Line-3 : Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ (Andheri) is being implemented through a SPV Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC). Bidding process is in progress for award of Civil works.
The Government is keen to implement the rest of the corridors in the shortest possible time. Accordingly MMRDA and the State Government accorded approval for implementation of following 118 km elevated Metro corridors in next 4 years.

Functions of Division

With the view to implementing the Metro corridors in a time bound manner and to coordinate with various Central and State authorities, agencies, ADB, external funding agencies and DMRC, a dedicated Metro Project Implementation Unit (Metro PIU) has been set up in MMRDA. The PIU is headed by Shri. Pravin Darade, Additional Metropolitan Commissioner who is the CEO of Metro PIU.
The PIU will have several units covering various disciplines like Civil, Systems, Signalling and Telecommunication (S&T), Automatic Fare Collection (AFC), Land Acquisition, R&R, Administrative, Town Planning, PR and Finance.
The Metro corridors alignments are now available on Google Earth and linked to MCGM Website as part of "Ease of doing business" an initiative by MCGM, State and Central Governments.
Citizens and the developers / owners can access the alignment Maps on Google earth and seek NOC of MMRDA in case the properties are falling partly or fully in the influence areas of Metro corridors.
