Jaipur Metro will provide free insurance cover to its passengers

The Jaipur Metro Railway Corporation (JMRC) has decided to provide a free insurance cover to the passengers travelling by Metro train. The JMRC will pay the premium from its own fund. The corporation will invite proposals from insurance companies regarding the same. The JMRC decided to implement this insurance scheme after a meeting with the DMRC management in Delhi recently.

The JMRC will also provide insurance cover to its employees. Under the policy, the JMRC employees will get accidental and normal insurance cover as well.
“In two-three days, all work will be completed for the trial run of Metro (first phase) from Mansarovar to Shyam Nagar”, said Project Director of DMRC Sri Atul Gadgil. However, the exact date for the trial has not been fixed yet.

 Only 40-50 metre track is remaining for electrification work which would be completed in next 2-3 days, Sri Gadgil said adding, locals will probably get to see the Metro running on the track on September 15. But people have to wait till next year for the Metro ride.

According to the officials, the trial would be conducted without passengers because for carrying passengers during the trial run, it is necessary to take prior permission from the district administration which has not been taken yet.
