Date of proposed extention of metro service upto Garia Stn. has been announced by the authority without increasing the number of recks. Once 'metro' was the proud of Kolkata. Now, travel by 'metro' is a horrible experience. Most of the entry/exit gates are in-operative, trains are running behind schedule as well as poor maintenance of coaches and tracks are the common featurers of 'metro'.
Extensiuon of metro routes in and arround Kolkata is quite justified. But at the same time public openion must be build up for better service of the existing metro route. Otherwise, commuters of metro railway may be the victim of massive digester.
