Hyderabad sources reported that a top official said the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) project expects to break even in six years. HMRL Managing Director NVS Reddy told reporters here after launching e-scooters of Metro Bikes for first and last mile connectivity at metro stations that "As per our financial model, L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited will incur losses for about four to five years and sixth year it will break even that's what our expectation is”.



Presently the concessionaire L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited is building the project across three corridors. Earlier in November last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had inaugurated a 30 km stretch between Miyapur and Nagole out of the 72 km long elevated metro project and there are 24 stations in the operational 30 km stretch.

Reddy said Hyderabad Metro is recording footfall of 80,000-85,000 passengers per day, and once we open remaining two sections he is expecting that it will be five lakh passengers per day and from there 15 lakh passengers in the next couple of years." Moreover on the Ameerpet to LB Nagar (16 km) stretch, Reddy said any time in August it will be opened for passengers. Further when reacting to another query on commercial space demand (spaces within Metro Rail stations and malls adjoining the stations), Reddy "the commercial space demand is excellent".
