  3. 3. What is Project? The word project comes from the Latin word projectum which means "something that comes before anything else happens". Source: A project is “a unique endeavour to produce a set of deliverables within clearly specified time, cost and quality constraints”. -Jason Westland, CEO MPMM “Trying to manage a project without project management is like trying to play a football game without a game plan.” - K .Tate 3

  6. 6. What is Project Management? In project management a project consists of a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service or result.

  8. 8. Project Life Cycle The sequence of phases through which the project will evolve is a project life cycle. A project life cycle is basically defined by it’s phases, according to which a project swims through & finally reaches to handover stage. 8

Project Planning Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work. -Peter Drucker Routes: East-West (18.1 km) & North-South Fund Formula: (14.9 km) Corridors •State: Rs 2287 cr Total length of project: 42.3kms •Centre/Federal: Rs 1831 cr Type: Elevated and Underground •Financial Institutions: Rs 3982 cr Number of stations: 41 Number Of Commuters Per Day: 820,000 Proposed Fare: 1.33-1.66 times the bus fares. Annual escalation fares at 4% Cost/Km Underground: Rs 250 crore Cost/Km Elevated: Rs 80 crore Total cost: Rs 8100crore Source: 14

  16. 16. Project Execution Ground-level preparations for the ambitious metro rail project in Bangalore are being made with the State Government freezing development activity in 247 premises and buildings it had tentatively identified for this purpose. Bangalore Metro will have a standard gauge and will take cover under the 100-year old Mysore Tramways Act, which will require some amendments by the state government to suit the present day needs. With this, BMRTL can avoid going to the railway ministry for all sanctions. Project Closure Phase 1 is expected to go live by December 2011. Source: 16
  17. 17. Summary Bangalore Metro Rail Project comes under the legal body of Bangalore Mass Rapid Transit Ltd (BMRTL). Chairman: Anil Bajijal, Union Urban Development Secretary Managing Director: Mr. V. Madhu Executive Director: Mr. M.S. Nagendra (Administration), Mr. Y.

  18. 18. Comparative Analysis: Metro Rail vs. Monorail Monorail is very expensive and the return on investment [ROI] is very low. Mono Rail system costs Rs 120 crore per km, against Metro Rail’s Rs 75 crore per km. Metro Rail had a capacity to carry 45,000-50,000 passengers per hour, while Mono Rail can carry only 10,000-12,000 passengers per hour. 18
  19. 19. Conclusion Public sector BEML has been mandated for the supply of 150 metro coaches valued at Rs 1,672cr. with a provision for supplying 63 more coaches. Supplies of the first set will begin in October 2010. The companies involved in handling various tasks of the project are:- •Hyderabad-based Navayuga Engineering Ltd. •Nagarjuna Construction Company Ltd. •Afcons Infrastructure, Gammon India, Simplex Infrastructures and Soma Enterprise. •Punj Lloyd Ltd. The second phase of the project might begin in 2012. 19
