Technical Operational Problems in Delhi Airport Metro Line

Prima facie, the investigations by the Joint Inspection Committee (JIC) comprising Ministry of Railways, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (DMRC), M/s Delhi Airport Metro Express Pvt. Ltd. (DAMEPL)
and M/s SYSTRA, the design consultant, show that there are defects in civil works, such as crushing of grout material below and above the bearings, deformation, cracks and shifting of bearings at many locations. In addition, certain cracks and twist in some of the girders have also been noticed.
DMRC has informed that M/s DAMEPL, the operator for airport metro line has brought out the issue of financial viability of the project. However, no formal request to take over the project by DMRC or restructure the entire project has been received by DMRC from M/s DAMEPL. 
This information was given by the Minister of Urban Development Shri Kamal Nath in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
