MP Metro projects get Rs 12,000-cr soft loan from Japan: The Madhya Pradesh government claims to have obtained consent for getting a Rs 12,000-crore foreign loan for its ambitious Bhopal and Indore Metro rail projects. The funds will be available at much lower rates than those available in India.
“We last month held discussions with officials of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which will arrange funding of Rs 12,000 crore at 0.3 per cent interest for the Bhopal and Indore Metro rail projects,” said Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan after returning from a 10-day business trip to Japan.Template:Http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/mp-metro-projects-get-rs-12-000-cr-soft-loan-from-japan-115100800941 1.html
