"The plan is to get electricity from Kaloor substation, which is being upgraded. The modernization works being undertaken by KSEB will also help metro," said Elias George, managing director, KMRL. George, who is also the chairman of KSEB, said on getting the letter from KMRL, KSEB would respond stating its plans to provide power.
He said that metro stations would use fourth generation technology for the metro project, which is being touted as a green project. The same technology would also be used to provide passenger amenities. The board of directors had constituted a sub-committee to look into the possibilities of upgrading technology for effective implementation of the project.
The facilities at the station would be provided in two categories: facilities accessible with ticket and those accessible without ticket. KMRL is yet to list the facilities included in each category. Meanwhile, during the foundation stone-laying ceremony, many students who attended the ceremony had expressed the need for concession on metro trains. In a presentation made by KMRL they have included this demand.
