This report in DH states that the Scomi Engineering /Geodesic Techiques tie up is pitching for Bangalore Monorail on BOT basis (build, own, transfer), whose first phase of execution will see $2.4 billion investment. The State government has not yet decided on funding modalities, & is scrutinising the DPR submitted by the consortium.

The Scomi Group has also pitched for monorail projects in New Delhi, Chennai, Gujarat & Kolkata, besides Bangalore, & is said to be in an advanced stage of negotiations with state governments.

Scomi is 'excited' about India, & has described India as “a promised land” since they see huge potential in public transport business here.

 

See these links about progress on Mumbai monorail, also being built by Scomi :

no that mumbai has shown the way for monorail, why not Namma Nengaluru

in fact this is the right time, since our own metro is yet to start

will this be a separate project like metro or any possibility of the existing metro being adapted?

probably Praja can do something

many thanks
