Abstract: The new metro rail policy was enacted by the government of India in the year 2017. Under this policy, under section xiv, the Government of India (GOI) made it compulsory to seek Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for metro projects which are intending to seek financial assistance from the central government. Hyderabad Metro is by far the largest metro project to be executed under PPP, but is it successful? This paper investigates various factors that affected the timeline of the Hyderabad metro. It evaluates various aspects in the pre-construction, construction, and post-construction phase of the Hyderabad metro. Finally, suggestions are made in the form of conclusions that would increase the likelihood of a successful PPP in the metro.
