Kolkata: The advancement of East-West Metro again came to a stand still. On Thursday the hearing regarding the East West Metro case took place at the Calcutta High Court. As per the hearing, a description of the new route has to be submitted before Aug 1. It is only after that, the ongoing work will be carried forward. The decision was given by Justice Soumitra Pal.
On the other hand, the central government has informed the state government that the extra amount required to change the route would have to be incurred by the state. The Japanese funding organization has also expressed reluctance in the changing of route.
