Mumbai a Metro city, finally.
Despite a lack of coordination between the state government and the Reliance Infrastructure-led Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) and the escalating row over the fare structure, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan inaugurated Mumbaiís first Metro on 8th of June 2014 at Versova.

Commercial services on the 11.4-km Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro started soon after the inauguration more than six years after the construction had started in February 2008, with the number of commuters having crossed the one-lakh mark by 6 pm on the first day itself. The project is the first Metro in the country to be constructed on a public-private-partnership model. While former prime minister Manmohan Singh had laid the foundation stone in June 2006, the concession agreement for the project was signed in 2007 and construction started in February 2008.
