PM flags off driverless metro train, launches National Common Mobility Card

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated country’s first-ever fully-automated driverless train on Magenta Line of the Delhi Metro on Monday.

PM Modi also launched fully operational National Common Mobility Card on the Airport Express Line. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal attended the inauguration programme  of both the events.

The Prime Minister said during the regime of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee the first metro rail project was rolled out in the country.

 He said in 2014, only 5 cities had metro rails, but today the number has reached 18.  More than 25 cities are going to get this opportunity by 2025, the Prime Minister added.
